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

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
