The air-conditioned highway

“Please join us on a trip across the top of a nation, in the air-conditioned comfort of our northern climate…” so says this brochure from the 1960s. Just think, your journey could begin along the rocky shores of Maine’s Acadia National Park, head west to Niagara Falls, slice across Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and cruise through the prairies of the North Dakota. Cross the Rocky Mountains and Glacier National Park in Montana. Finally, coast down the western slope into Everett, Wash. along the shores of Puget Sound. The U.S. Highway 2 Association was located in Shelby, Mont. and used this brochure to promote sights and tourist services along the route.
