I-93 through most of New Hampshire. The White Mountains are fantastic along with Franconia Notch state park.

I think that most of A1A, through Florida, is beautiful! A1A has always been my favorite road to drive to just look at the scenery. I have always lived within a few miles of A1A and I think it's gorgeous! Not only is it right on the ocean, but you drive past many historical places.

Florida State Road A1A - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Taken From Text:

Quote:
SR A1A is designated the A1A Scenic and Historic Coastal Highway, a National Scenic Byway... SR A1A is heavily associated with Florida beach culture and is known for its lush subtropical scenery and ocean vistas. In many places, the highway directly fronts the Atlantic Ocean, and in other places, runs 1-5 blocks inland from the beachfront. For most of its length, A1A runs along Florida's East Coast Barrier Islands, separated from the mainland of the state by the Intracoastal Waterway.

I agree on I-93 through New Hampshire. Try also I-77 in Ohio/West Virginia and I-79 in Pennsylvania.
Any number of roads around State College, Pennsylvania will amuse me for days.

Northern lower Michigan has many good drives. Watch out for deer, but don't watch out for me telling you where they are. There are enough Buckeyes and Hoosiers wandering around, causing traffic problems. I'm not getting paid to shill for the tourist industry.

Chicago's Lake Shore Drive and Cleveland's Memorial Shoreway are my favorite urban drives.

My favorite patch of road anywhere is M-14 from Ann Arbor to Detroit's western burbs. My least favorite road is I-75 between Detroit and Toledo. It's worse than I-80/I-90/I-94 past Gary. Yes, the "Detroit-Toledo Expressway" (former name) is fast, when you don't need to slow down for roadwork ... but the freeway is never in good shape, I'm always in a hurry, and it's just plain ugly.

I-5 from Redding, CA up past Mt. Shasta up into southern Oregon through Siskiyou pass is a pretty amazing stretch of the interstate. Though it helps if clouds aren't blocking your view of Shasta.

I-80 west of Salt Lake City, the amazing Bonneville salt flats.

I-70 through southern Utah. More impressive than I-70 in Colorado, IMO. Extremely remote, 100+ miles between any services which was a pain as my camera was running out of batteries and there are a million places to pull of the road and take pics...

US-50 to sr-92 in Colorado, from the south to north rim of Black Canyon of the Gunnison Natl Park

US-64, sr-522, sr- 38 in New Mexico, the "enchanted circle" around Taos. Views of Wheeler Peak.

Columbia River Gorge/ Mt Hood loop in Oregon.

and I'm sure many more I've yet to drive. Can't wait to make it too Wyoming, Montana, Washington State, maybe even Alaska...

Lakeshore Drive is gorgeous on a pretty day, but nothing beats the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The Blue Ridge Parkway

Michigan-lower peninsula northwestern part of the state; 31 and 119 through Emmet county is really nice. The peninsula that is called "Old Mission Peninsula", which is 37 is really nice with the rolling hills with chateaus and vineyards doting the landscape and being to see the water on both sides is nice.

The Alpine forest look-alike throught the North Rim to the Grand Canyon which are roads 89 and 67.

Driving through the Salt River Canyon in Arizona along route 60 is suprisingly nice. Often referred to as the Mini-Grand Canyon.

Kentucky/Virginia-119 either to Pikeville, Ky or 160 from Cumberland, Ky to Virginia is nice. You pass along the highest point (elevation 4,145) in Kentucky which is the Black Mountains. There is a nice ride along the Little Sheperd Trail in Kentucky.

That's all i got for now....

Blue Grass Fever wants the world to crowd on M-37 and M-119, just great.

Skyline Drive in Virginia is just too long!

I love the drive along the north shore of Lake Superior from 100 miles north of Duluth, MN or so until Grand Portage.

Of course, some of the best sights in the country (including the hot springs, the Great Pyramid, and the famed submarine docks (home to the Mankato Silver Discs!) can be found in Mankato, MN
