AMAZING! Have you ever driven down a road that played music by the grooves in the road? This was an amazing, singular experience.

This is so much fun. Drive down this stretch of road with your windows down to hear the opening volleys of the William Tell Overture!

just outside of Lancaster on the way to Fox Airfield or Apollo Park is this whimsical stretch of road playing the William Tell Overture through your vehicle's tires. Watch for the signs, stay to the left & enjoy this FREE treat provided by the city of Lancaster, Calif.

Originally built on Ave K between 70 and 60th st west for a Honda Civic commercial, the song drove the neighbors crazy and the city of Lancaster moved it to its current location on ave.

You drive over a small patch (left lane) road and you hear a lovely melody...can't make it out...but its way cool!!! The road has grooves/indentations on it, you can't miss it, there's a sign and the road itself is older/lighter in color than the lanes to the right of it.

It's nice to hear the music. When somebody invited me I thought it was a joke! But it was for real! Good experience!

I live in the area & we drive the musical road at least once a week. It's amazing and very rare. It's a must if you're ever in the Antelope Valley.

There are a few musical roads through out the world. One of them is here in the Antelope Valley. Short span of road Try different speeds to hear the musical tune. 55 mph - 60 mph is ideal to hear the tune. We gone around a couple of time just because it is fun and unusual.

We have driven the Musical Road a few times. It was on the way to a restaurant we were headed to, so we opted to hear the road again. We have tried it at various speeds and it is fun. The kids will like it.

Thank Laura A
