ROUTE 1 VIEWS
Explore, Share, and connect with
your American Routes
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Route1Views is an interactive social website that celebrates the people who have lived and worked along the nation’s first interstate highway. We are attempting to look at Route 1 as a dynamic, evolving roadway connecting strangers and neighbors alike. By exchanging stories, images, music, and art Route1Views allows travelers to appreciate the highway’s unique history and culture.
We hope that users of Route1Views will appreciate the many ways that Route 1 connects us. We believe that the power of those connections is far greater than the issues that divide us. In that spirit, we encourage users to build bridges to one another, remove walls of prejudice, and to travel with tolerance for differing opinions.
