Traveling the Scenic Roads and Byways of America

On the road to the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal ParkOn U.S. 163 headed to the Monument Valley in Utah

We've traveled thousands of miles over hundreds of roads in virtually every state in the United States and several provinces in Canada.

Our journeys have taken us from Key West to Maine, from New York to California, from Arizona to Oregon, and Texas to Banff and Lake Louise. And many byways and back roads in between!

It's hard to pick the best, the most scenic, the one with the least traffic, or the most historic ... but here is a list of our favorites ... they might be the perfect road trip for you!

And in 2020 as we all deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, the chance to be out on the open roads is a popular travel alternartive.
