Mile Zero of the Trans-Canada Highway

Field review by the editors.

Victoria, British Columbia

Mile Zero may sound like the title of a summer popcorn movie based on a graphic novel, but it is in fact the official starting point of the Trans-Canada Highway. It's a road that deserves a big Mile Zero sign because it has more followup miles than any other: 4,860, making it the longest highway in the world. The Trans-Canada Highway is also the north-of-the-border version of America's Route 66, with many towns along its route building giant statues or hosting quirky museums to siphon off the passing tourist traffic.
