The Great California Road Trip 1962
A nostalgic look back at travel by car in California, circa 1962.
To millions around the globe, California means “Vacation.” The state’s diverse topography offers sunny beaches and snowcapped mountains within a same-day drive. The attractions are many, and California’s car culture was designed with the roadside traveler in mind.
Travel through California visiting its historic roadside attractions through the lens of a 1962 road trip. Relive the nostalgia of the Nut Tree, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Children’s Fairyland, and many more through posters, postcards, signs, and memorabilia of a bygone era. Then plan your own roadmap to see the destinations you’ve been meaning to explore today. Happy motoring!
Curated by Andrew Danish.
In the History Gallery from May 20 through October 8, 2023.
