Review: Scenic Drives in America

Yes, I know gasoline prices are going through the roof. But depending upon where you live, you don't have to go far to enjoy the beauty that is America. And if you stay off the Interstates, taking the scenic routes, you'll probably end up saving gas because you'll get better gas mileage at the lower speeds.

Check out America's Byways®: National Scenic Byways Online and send away for their free brochure. It is a great overview of the designated scenic highways in the U.S.

For a more detailed description, I found the Reader's Digest book invaluable when planning our last road trip through Wyoming, Utah, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and South Dakota. And I'm using it now as I lay out a trip to the Southwest.
