Trekking through the bareness of Nevada
, Highway 50, where it's known as the Loneliest Road, you can follow US Highway 50 all the way from Sacramento, California, to Ocean City, Maryland. Before the interstate system overpowered it, Highway 50 went all the way to San Francisco. In the Midwest it primarily passes through farmlands, but also goes through Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri, and Cincinnati, Ohio. After passing through the Appalachian Mountains, US 50 makes its way through Washington, D.C., completing slightly less than the 3,073 miles that the sign at Ocean City, Maryland, proclaims.
