Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: "This is the book for those who take the slow route...get out of the car and walk around and look and talk to the people." —Times-Picayune

Expanded to include all U.S. designated America's Byways as well as other selected drives in all 50 states, this stunning new edition features unique driving tours through virtually every kind of landscape—spectacular coastlines, mountains, lakes, small towns, ranch and farmlands, islands, bays, and river valleys.

Some of the routes are famous, such as Virginia's Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway, the Natchez Trace, and picturesque sections of the Great River Road. But there are lesser-known drives here too, including the ones along Maryland's serene Eastern Shore and Michigan's remote Whitefish Bay, through quiet Pennsylvania Dutch Country and Texas's undiscovered Davis Mountains. Some drives are jaw-droppingly magnificent, like Wyoming's Centennial Scenic Byway through the spectacular Teton Range; while others possess quiet beauty, such as the lush Flint Hills of Kansas. These diverse auto adventures range from the 4-mile Las Vegas Strip to the 8,000-mile Alaska Marine Highway, offering wonderful inspiration for day excursions, weekend getaways, and longer, leisurely family vacations.

Veteran National Geographic writers combine their regional knowledge and storytelling techniques, describing the scenery, history, and points of interest along each route. Readers will also find 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 adds up to a "must have" reference for every adventuresome motorist.
