America's Scenic Byways
A lot of those scenic byways are very neat to visit. A specific place I would throw out there is Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota, the least visited state.

I know it sounds crazy if you're not familiar with the area, but southern Illinois gets my vote for some of the prettiest scenery I've seen.

New Mexico

A few years back during a vacation road trip I only planned to spend part of one day in New Mexico getting from Colorado to Arizona. Ended up spending 8 days in New Mexico. Made my way across the Northern part of the state crossing the mountains. Then made my way to Alamogordo. Spend a couple days there. Then over the mountains to Carlsbad. Did the cavern thing. Then finally spent another full day getting to Arizona.

The Big Bend National Park/Big Bend Ranch State Park/Terlingua/(and the Boquillas, Mexico crossing) part of Texas -- just stunning and so many things to do out there if you like nature!
