It’s Impossible To Drive Along New Jersey’s Lincoln Highway Without Pulling Over To See The World’s Largest Lightbulb
The Lincoln Highway is one of the oldest transcontinental highway routes in America designed for automobiles. It was conceived in 1912 and constructed shortly after. Formally dedicated in 1913, the Lincoln Highway ran across the country, from Times Square in New York to Lincoln Park in San Francisco. It originally traversed 13 states, one of which was (and is) New Jersey.
Also known as Route 27, New Jersey’s remaining stretch of the Lincoln Highway runs from Newark to Princeton.
The Edison Memorial Tower is open Thursday-Saturday for tours. Lit from dusk to dawn, the interior offers original artifacts and 100+-year-old Edison Phonographs that you can still listen to. While visiting, enjoy a guided walk along a scenic nature trail through the surrounding 36-acre state park.
