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.

Mile Zero of the Trans-Canada Highway

Douglas St., Victoria, BC, Canada
On the south edge of town, just north of the Juan De Fuca Strait. The monument and sign stand at the southwest corner of Beacon Hill Park, on the east side of Douglas St. (which is what the Trans-Canada Hwy begins as) just north of where it dead-ends into Dallas Rd.
