What Happens When You Drive Down This One New Mexico Highway Is Bizarre But True

A stretch of Route 66, near Tijeras, New Mexico, is unlike any other section of the Mother Road. You don’t need to turn on your radio to hear music. The road actually sings “America the Beautiful” as you drive over it!

Each car is different and so that impacts the tone of the music. This video gives you an idea of what the road sounds like.

Would you obey the speed limit if it meant being entertained during travel? Have you experienced New Mexico’s singing road for yourself? Let us know what you think.

To reach the musical highway, just type your starting point into this map.
