LINCOLN HIGHWAY, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- All month long, you'll be able to toast a special birthday for one of the state's most well-known roads.
There's a lot of history behind the Lincoln Highway. Most notably, it is the first paved coast to coast highway in the country. 1
Nevada's stretch of the Lincoln is Highway 50, also known as the loneliest road in America, but it won't be alone as this stretch of road celebrates its 100th birthday. All month long, you have a chance to get a free mug and take part in the celebrating.
Driving east to west, from Great Basin National Park, six of the towns will be handing out free mugs to celebrate the birthday, so seven mugs in all. And like the towns along the way, each one is different.
A lot has happened on this stretch of road over the past 100 years, and as we celebrate a century of connecting east and west together, travelers are also raising their mugs and toasting the pioneers who helped make it happen.
After the first mug is handed out at Great Basin National Park, the other six can be collected in Ely, Eureka, Austin, Fallon, Fernley and Dayton.
