To get from Virginia to West Virginia (and vice versa) on I-77, go through the East River Mountain Tunnel. It's a beautiful and rugged part of the Appalachians.

Michigan to Ontario crossing the International Bridge while viewing the Soo locks.

Montana to Wyoming on the Beartooth Highway


And an honorable mention to Upper Peninsula to Lower Peninsula Michigan crossing Mackinac Bridge (you can walk it on labor day).

I like the Superman.

My favorite so far is the drive on I-70 between Ohio and Pennsylvania, where you spend 10 minutes in West Virginia (panhandle).

I love my home state of Ohio but I hate driving in Ohio the state troops are the worst of any state, they pull you ever for going 10 mph over the speed limit.

They must be talking talking about I-24. I-75 from TN to GA is pretty noneventful.

My favorite border is TN /NC. There are a few boring crossings to the SW corner of NC, but most of the time you are crossing the spine of the smokies. Newfound gap is 5046'. Even I-40 is beautiful with the gorge.

My favorite state border crossing is Georgia into Florida on I-95. The palm trees lead me in. The Florida welcome center offers me orange juice. And the balmy breeze says, "You are now on vacation!"

My favorite border crossing is between Derby Line, Vermont and Stanstead, Quebec where Canusa Street runs between the two countries - Residents of one side of the street live in Canada, while their neighbors across the street live in the US. How cool is that? Where else is there a library that has one entrance door in Canada and one entrance door in the US? Unfortunately, post 9-11, the countries have made border checkpoints necessary that weren't before. But it's still a cool place!

As most people know, the river is between AZ and CA and it always amazes me how I can be driving through the desert of CA or AZ then out of nowhere a huge river with vegetation, boats, ect. pops up.
I've always wanted to drive into California by taking the desert route through Arizona, seems like the quintessential American route. Hopefully I can make that crossing one of these years.
