A Drive Down Illinois’ Loneliest Road Will Take You Miles And Miles Away From It All
U.S. Route 50 is widely known as “The Loneliest Road in America,” stretching a length of over 3,000 miles east to west from Ocean City, Maryland, to West Sacramento, California. This transcontinental highway runs through the southern portion of Illinois for 165 miles of flat farmland and small towns. For those times you truly want to get away from it all, take a drive along this lonely, desolate highway.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
