This sounded like fun but first of all, it's quite far outside of town and second, it only lasts a few seconds. Also, although I did recognize the melody, it was a bit off. Definitely not a top attraction.

Every time I have someone new come out here, we have to do the musical road. And then turn around and do it again and again. It is unique and it always makes people smile.

We had visitors in town who actually asked about this road. Anyone who lives out here is like, "it's alright," but apparently it's dinner than we give itt credit for. So, we took our friends down the musical road and they lived it! The reaction...More

We think the road might need to be "tuned" as it didn't sound quite right...but for a free attraction unlike anything else anywhere, it's well worth a drive if you're already in the Antelope Valley. Make sure you roll down your windows...drive westbound in the...More

The musical road sounded flat and awful since the previous location sounded greater. The residents shows how many people are too sensitive to deal with tourism in the world today. I'm blaming Jerry brown for this!

The tune is little off but it's fun. It's on Avenue G. One of the two musical roads in the USA, if you are local, you want to drive on it!
