Highway 101

Search Visit Oregon

Similar to many of America's early highways, Highway 101 originally was a hodge-podge of existing roads loosely collected into a national transportation network. For example, 101 was known in Southern California as the El Camino Real, the King's Highway. Further north in California and Oregon, the Roosevelt and Pacific Coast Highways were the chosen roads to adopt the 101 shield while in Washington, the honor went to the Olympic Highway. From Olympia, Washington, to San Diego, California, the newly commissioned highway carried the early traveler through some of the most beautiful scenery this country has to offer.
