This highway does not traverse the entire country but starts near Florence, South Carolina and continues westward to western Texas. Several major US cities, such as, Atlanta, Georgia, Birmingham, Alabama, and Dallas, Texas, are located along the route.
Atlanta – From the home of Martin Luther King Jr to CNN Studios to Coca-Cola World, this large city has many attractions for the visitor.
Stone Mountain – This huge megalith just outside of Atlanta is noted for the colossal sculpture of Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and Jefferson Davis carved from the rock.
Vicksburg National Battlefield – This is the site of one of the most pivotal battles of the Civil War and is a must-see for Civil War aficionados.
Dallas – This large metropolis which rises abruptly from the plains is perhaps best known as the scene of the assassination of beloved US President, John F Kennedy.
