In your opinion, what are the 3 most scenic, gorgeous roads in the US that somebody visiting the country shouldn't miss and why (surrounding landscape, wether urban or rural etc.?)?

Please share your experience!

2) Not sure of the name, but the Los Angeles Road that runs along Pepperdine and Malibu (Malibu, CA)

Default opinion of a foreign tourist

1)- highway 1 between LA and SF, California (also called pacific coast highway).

2)- the road crossing Yosemite National Park between east and west entrances

3)- the road going through Death Valley

Youre thinking of either Kanan Road or Las Virgines that leads to PCH.

Wow no one has mentioned the Blue Ridge Parkway. The parkway is like 469 miles long? There is many amazing views along the parkway as well.

The Great River Road in Western Wisconsin.

Route 66
