Description


Discover America's best scenic drives--plus 25 new drives--mile by mile, in this photo-filled, detail-packed travel book. There are famous drives here, including the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Natchez Trace, and some of the prettiest sections of the Great River Road; and lesser-known drives as well, including the back roads of Pennsylvania's Dutch Country; Maryland's quiet Eastern Shore; and Michigan's remote Whitefish Bay. Some drives are jaw-droppingly magnificent--Wyoming's Centennial Scenic Byway and Oregon's dramatic Columbia River Gorge--while others possess quiet beauty, such as the lovely Flint Hills byways of Kansas.

Among the 25 new drives is the Harriett Tubman Underground Railroad Byway in Maryland; Scenic Byway 143--Utah's Patchwork Parkway; and Washington's White Pass Scenic Byway.

Describing the scenery, history, and points of interest along each route, veteran National Geographic writers combine their regional knowledge and storytelling techniques to ensure that your next road trip is a success. Also included are 375 glorious photographs and four-color maps for every drive, along with information on road conditions, driving times, site addresses, visiting hours, admission fees, and more. It all adds up to a "must have" reference for every adventurous motorist.
