Yeah and I'm a college student, I can't do that! Haha if only, that would be the dream.

There is actually a really cheap, but good, seafood restaurant at the corner of 59th Ave and Union Hills in Glendale called Pier 83 where you can get a big and delicious clam chowder bread bowl. But there is no replacement for that here in Tucson.

Parts of US 9 also in NY seems to fit as well: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.9390...7i13312!8i6656
Yes! That U.S. 20 example you showed me is what I'm talking about, but now the U.S. 9 example.

Yes...that US-31 example is what I'm talking about!

Those are virtually nonexistent in New England!

I haven't been following the boards very much lately, but I thought you moved to Columbus, Ohio a few months ago. Are you back in CT now? I think there are a lot of roads like you are describing in Upper Midwest/Great Lakes states like Ohio, especially since they have vast rural areas and are as flat as a board in many places.

A few months ago? Lol. I moved to Columbus a year ago, but only lived there for 9 months, then moved back to CT in March and started a new job. So I've been back in CT for about 4 months now.

But you're right. The Midwest has a lot of roads like that. THe whole country does really. Just not the northeast!

I'm jealous of the autumn leaves that New England has. I'm jealous of the thunderstorms that the south gets, and I want to be able to experience a white Christmas...at least once.

Oh, sorry, guess I've been away longer than I thought, lol.

I've only been to New England once about eight years ago, but I get what you're saying. I can specifically remember driving from Plymouth, MA to Newport, RI and noticing how condensed and populated everything seemed to my lifelong Upper Midwest trained eyes. It just seemed like every single inch of space was taken up by something, whether it be a house, a business, or whatever. Not that it wasn't very nice, just very different from what I'm used to. Where I live, we get everywhere by rural expressways and when I look out my back window there are cornfields and woods as far as the eye can see.

I guess it's all perspective. If I was to visit Montana or Wyoming, then Ohio and Michigan would probably seem crowded and condensed.

Yeah it is all perspective. When I was living in Ohio, I was often jealous of the progressive politics of New England and the east coast. And I was jealous of the people/culture. And the hills and mountains, etc. But now that I'm back home, I feel like moving again. LMAO!

As the OP stated, I am also jealous of the highways in the Mid West and the West(excluding CA). It's nice to drive on a long,straight, open road. You don't find that in New England. While I love it here, and some of the hilly, curvy roads can be fun to drive on, it would be nice to drive from point A to point B on a nice open road.

In Colorado, I hear we are jealous of no state. This is the place! (Sorry Utah). As stated at the roll call at the RNC "We are God's piece of real estate!"

I would like to see our freeway speeds increased to 80, but the highways are so bad that's probably not a good idea.
