I am taking my fiance to California for her birthday in May. However, we have to drive. What is the most senic way to get the California. Not the quickest, but the most fine to drive and scenic.

Where in Cali? Northern Cali you'll wanna find your way to I-80. If it's SoCal I'd take I-70 through Colorado and onto I-15 in Utah.

How about getting to the Chicago area and then following the general direction of the old Route 66? That can be scenic.

If you're a member of the AAA go to their office and have them map out a scenic route for you. Otherwise most of your trip will be the expressway with a hit and miss side trip.
Scenic routes may take several weeks where expressway's will only take a few days plus another few days for side trips.

Personally I'd rather go to the dentist than an AAA office. I guess I had a bad experience.

I40 is not a bad choice for much of your trip. It parallels the old route 66 so many of the sights along it are very accessible. This route passes close to: Branson MO; Amarillo TX (home of the monster steak house, close to the Jesus Saves truck stop); Santa Fe; monument valley AZ; Acoma Pueblo; Petrified Rock NP; Grand Canyon; Vegas; too many more to mention, end up in LA or San Diego.
