History lesson: Old U.S. Highway 40 stretches from New Jersey to California, and with Route 66, was one of the main travel routes across the country. To travel today on Old Highway 40 instead of Interstate 80 is to see America as it once was.
Driving along Old Highway 40 across the Sierra Nevada from Sacramento to Reno gives the traveler a new perspective and experience. Traveling at a slower pace, one passes the remnants of the past: old gas stations and motels, museums, towns off the beaten path, and historical sites and buildings.
