Review of Civic Musical Road

Civic Musical Road
Ranked #2 of 35 things to do in Lancaster
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 31, 2013

I love the musical road - what a wonderful idea! It's just a short drive off of Hwy 14 and only takes a few minutes (even if you do it again and again... and again like we did). It's fun, whimsical and ingenious. And hey, it's one-of-a-kind, so who wouldn't want to stop.

My kids got a kick out of it- so we turned around twice. 30 to 40 mpg is the perfect speed.
It's a quick little detour to do on your way to something else.

Go if you want, but this is a few second attraction. Was better than I expected. A bit of a drive to go around again, as they have most of the u-turn spaces blocked.

This attraction is indeed unique, since it is one of a kind in the entire United States. Something like it can be found in just two other spots in the world, Japan and South Korea. The "Musical Road" was created a few years ago for a Honda Civic commercial. If you have a GPS unit, punch in 3187 W. Avenue G, Lancaster, CA 93536. The road is located off state route 14, also known as the Sierra Highway. There was light traffic on the street at this location on a Saturday afternoon around 5:00 p.m. When you have arrived at this location, stay in the left lane. I enjoyed listening to the "music" at around 50 miles per hour. Unfortunately, the grooves in the road which produce the sound only last for about ten seconds of travel. Like me, you will probably make a u-turn a few times to repeat the experience!

It's just a couple of miles off the interstate and is well worth the short drive to get to it. The section of road that is "musical" is shorter than I would have liked Traffic is minimal, though, and it's easy to make a u-turn to drive it again. It was fun to see how speed affecting the pitch. Maybe there's a music lesson there? It was just my husband and me in the car, but I can assure you that kids will think it's a hoot!
