Oh, there are a lot of good ones, but I'd say that currently my favorite is on the Bridge of the Gods over the Columbia River, going from OR to WA.

I-25 northbound through Raton Pass from coming from the high desert plains of New Mexico up over the pass gives you a spectacular view of a mountain panorama as soon as you cross the state line into Colorado. The 13,000 foot peaks of the Sangre de Cristos and the 14,000+ Spanish Peaks jump right out at you. It's a very appropriate and beautiful welcome into Colorado.

Just looked up that spot on Google streetview. Wow, I did not expect that area to be so green! (In August. When I switch to October it looks more typical of what I expected lol)

I love coming eastbound across the I-70 bridge from Ohio into Wheeling, with the skyline and the historic National Road U.S. 40 bridge off to the left. I'll routinely go that way instead of the I-470 bypass just for the view (unless I know something is going on traffic-wise that has to do with the tunnel). Also for the city view, the Eads Bridge from Illinois into St. Louis is a classic. And, of course, the Rainbow Bridge at Niagara Falls.

One that isn't anything really special but just has sentimental value for me is the PA160/MD47 crossing north of Cumberland, MD. On the rare occasions that I do take the Turnpike --> I-70 all the way from Pittsburgh to D.C., I greatly appreciate how the speed limit jumps from an irritatingly low 55 mph immediately up to 70 upon entering Maryland.

And finally, this is only a train crossing, but the Capitol Limited westbound crossing from MD to WV at Harper's Ferry is wonderful.
