Book details spirit, people of Lincoln Highway

In honor of the Lincoln Highway’s centennial, Mike Konz, the managing editor of the Kearney Hub, has written a book called The Lincoln Highway: Nebraska’s Longest Main Street Celebrates 100 Years.

This is the year Nebraskans should be asking themselves, “Am I a tourist or a traveler?” The answer to that question is important because there’s no better time to enjoy travel in Nebraska than this year, the centennial of the Lincoln Highway, the nation’s first coast-to-coast highway.

How one Cedar Rapids restaurant survived a full century

The Lincoln Highway has played a big part in the success and longevity of the LIGHTHOUSE INN SUPPER CLUB in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

A loyal customer following seems to attest to the food and service at the Lighthouse Inn supper club in Cedar Rapids. But that alone isn’t the reason it’s survived 100 years. The local landmark is a story not just of Iowans’ dining-out habits, but of America’s transportation system.

Driving the Mohawk Trail in Massachusetts

Here is another great American road for taking a road trip. The Mohawk Trail in Massachusetts follows an old Native American path and was originally constructed for automobiles in 1914. It is now part of State Route 2.

Diversions dominate on this historic trail, with soaring views, zip lining, maple syrup and even a storybook cottage all just an exit away.
