A highway is a major arterial road within a city, or linking several cities together.
Probably the most famous highway in the United States is Route 66, while if you follow Australia's Highway 1, you can travel from capital city to capital city almost the entire way around the whole country.
Highways usually have a higher speed limit than other roads because they have more lanes and are designed for travelling at a higher speed. Highways are a grade below freeways in importance.
