Kancamagus Scenic Byway
North Woodstock, New Hampshire to Conway, New Hampshire
Leave the hustle and bustle of life behind as you drive through the White Mountains. Few scenic byways are more beautiful in the fall than this one, each tree bursting with fiery red and brilliant yellow. With no gas stations, restaurants or hotels in close proximity you can truly get away from it all.
Peak to Peak Scenic and Historic Byway
Central City, Colorado to Estes Park, Colorado
Of all the scenic byways, history buffs need to travel this one. Peak to Peak was deemed Colorado’s oldest scenic highway in 1918. Here you’ll catch the Continental Divide, historic mining sites and Roosevelt National Forest. Snow capped mountains and yellow green meadows are the perfect backdrop for your photo op.
Nebo Loop Scenic Byway
Nephi, Utah to Payson, Utah
At 11,929 feet, Mt. Nebo stretches high into the clouds on one of the most geographically diverse scenic byways. The various terrains make this an interesting ride from end to end, with flat bottomlands, red rock formations and salt flats. The usually tall alpine conifers pale in comparison to the size of Mt. Neebo, but make for a distinct and breathtaking drive all the same.
Whitefish Bay Scenic Byway
Whitefish Township, Michigan to Bay Mills Township, Michigan
This scenic byway runs through the Hiawatha National Forest, along Whitefish Bay, where clear waters and long, sandy beaches make this a drive to remember. Take a day trip in the summer season and try a few beaches as you cruise down the route.
Big Sur Coast Highway
Carmel, California to Monterey, California
Few scenic byways are more picturesque than this one. Running parallel to the bright blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, rugged cliffs, infinite blue skies and sea lions give you a reason to stop at nearly every mile marker. Be sure to get out from behind your camera to breathe the fresh sea air and take in the pristine views.
The Edge of the Wilderness Scenic Byway
Grand Rapids, Minnesota to Effie, Minnesota
One of the first scenic byways to be deemed a National Scenic Byway, this drive is as rich in history as it is in beauty. Roll down the windows as you wind through forests, swamps and unspoiled lakes. Then come back in fall to see the trees alive, bright with color.
Bighorn Scenic Byway
Shell, Wyoming to Sheridan, Wyoming
As you coast through the Big Horn Mountains you’ll admire the lush forests and brightly colored meadows of this scenic byway. Don’t miss the 120-foot cascading waterfalls of Shell Falls; some of the most extraordinary scenery you’ll find on this breathtaking drive.
Beartooth All American Road
Very Large RV’s may have difficulty with this one. This scenic drive has been called “the most beautiful drive in America”. Part of the National Scenic Byways All-American Road, it’s a winding and high road with lots of photo spots which winds its way through southwest Montana and northwest Wyoming and leads into Yellowstone National Park at its Northeast Entrance. Known locally as U.S. Highway 212, the Beartooth officially begins about an hours drive southwest of Billings in the small town of Red Lodge. From there, it winds up into the Absaroke Mountain Range, passing crystal clear lakes and over breathtaking vistas, while briefly drifting into, and out of, Wyoming, before descending into Cooke City, 69 miles farther down the road. At its highest point, the highway reaches 10,947 feet above sea level, well above the treeline and into the rarefied Montana air, where the views can take your breath away just as easily as the lack of oxygen.
