We drive over this part of the road when we go to Apollo Park and it is always fun. Going different speeds adds to the amusement.

I love the Musical Road. When one drives on it, it plays music. Its so fun. So of course when we were driving through Lancaster in mid August 2017, we did a detour to drive it again.

Our friends who live in Lancaster insisted that they take us on the Musical Road. We had no idea what to expect. What a kick! It's kind of in the middle of nowhere and it's just the left lane of a two-lane road. You have...More
