I say this reluctantly since I was really excited to drive over the highway and hear America the Beautiful. Well, it wasn't so exciting. The rumble strips are still there. But it feels as if it's been lost. First, there isn't any markings on the...More

Even though the sign says to slow down to 45 mph to hear this, it works at any speed. The song just plays at a different key. And you only have to drive a little closer to the right of the road for your passenger-side...More

The singing road was so awesome and a must visit if you’re in the ABQ area! It wasn’t hard to find, but it took us a few tries to get it right (there are turn-arounds on either side of the stretch of road). Once we...More
