With pictures, maps, and visiting tips, this new edition is a road warriors must have!
Broken into ten regions, each section gives highlights of scenic drives throughout all fifty states. Each state is featured with a group of ideal drives, which includes a map showing the location and relative distance of the drive as well as one or two color photos that the traveler can expect to take in a certain times of the year. Each drive is also provided with some points of interest to stop along the way as well as a little history. Undoubtedly this doesn’t catch every scenic trip worth taking, but is sure to get even the amateur traveler started in the right direction.
One of my favorite aspects of this book was seeing how many of the drives I have already done. On the ones that I’ve completed, the pictures brought back memories of the drive and I might even add to the list of some of the points of interest. It also gives me a great guide for future places that I want to visit. We’ve always been an “out of the way” travel family preferring to take the less traveled path rather than get there as quick as possible, so this book was right up our alley. I recommend this to people who like to travel and get ideas about places that they would like to visit.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
One thought on “Guide to Scenic Byways and Highways of the United States”
When my boys are older, I hope to do some road trips with them, and this would be the perfect guide. I hope they like road trips as much as I do!
Thank you for being on the tour!
