The Great California Road Trip 1962

In the History Gallery from May 20 through October 8, 2023:
a nostalgic look back at travel by car in California, circa 1962.

Where were you in ’62?

CALIFORNIA. The Golden State. There’s so much to see and do! Mountains and valleys. The ocean and deserts. A trail of Spanish Missions. Old mining camps and railroads. Parks for your amusement. Buildings and bridges, and old neon signs. Roadside fruit stands and coffee shops to fill your cup. Let’s take a road trip back in time and visit some of the highlights of a California road trip, circa 1962. The beauty of this trip is that it is one you can still take today.
