I-90 because it goes from New York through Wisconsin to Washington. I live a couple miles from 90 and have to say it's one of the most beautiful stretches. 94 is awesome as well. What about U.S. 2?

The Castle off US 60 near Lexington


Rep to you census data. 2-lane is definitely the ONLY way to see America. I never drive the interstates. Thanks for the pics.

Dang it, I meant to vote for I-70 but accidentally voted for I-80 instead.

I love I-70 through the Colorado Rockies and the Utah desert.

I also picked I 90 but I was thinking more of the dramatic scenery of the western states. In NY I 90 is a nice ride mostly past farms and woods but unfortunately nothing dramatic as the west. I assume Wisconsin is alot like NY?

I 90 actually continues on to Boston. Once you cross over the Hudson at Albany you come to the Taconic Mountains/Berkshire Hills (nice scenery) and then continue eastward across Massachusetts.

I 94 (according to my National Geographic map lol) branches off from I 90 somewhere near you Josh and then reconnects in Montana. The difference? You miss the Black Hills but come close to the Minnesota lake country.

I have no idea where US 2 is lol. US 1 however is the Boston Post Road here in NY.

I like Interstate 10. It's beautiful going through the Texas Hill Country.

Most people seem to be choosing the interstates. Too bad, because you see a lot more on the non-interstates (unless your goal is A>>>>B as quickly as possible, then you want the interstates.

My favorite is US 6.

Interstate 10. You get it all. Deserts, mountains, hill country, prairies, bayous, pine trees, and bayfronts. And all through the Sun Belt.

RE: I-94, it splits from I-90 at Tomah, WI. It's not that much more interesting than I-90 across MN, with the exception of going through the hearts of Mpls and St Paul. It completely misses the MN lakes country. I can only think of one lake you can see from the highway between the Twin Cities and Fargo, ND.

RE: US2, it's kind of a cool road. It starts way up in northern Maine by the Canadian border, then goes west across northern NH, VT and NY, where it disappears into the St Lawrence River, only to emerge from the Straits of Macinac hundreds of miles west on the Upper Peninsula of MI. From there it goes west across northern MI and MN (through the lakes country), across ND and MT (right thru Glacier National Park), then across northern WA all the way to the coast (not sure where & too lazy to look up )
