We have only driven #1 on your list. Hwy 12 was wonderful although the Hogsback portion prevented me from watching very much scenery, at my wife's request since she was the one sitting closest to the drop-offs. Hey, I was fine near the centerline!

We hope do drive some of the others in the next few years.

Another surprisingly scenic one is Hwy 24 east of Torrey through Capitol Reef NP.

You want excitement, drive on any freeway thru Los Angeles. Leave a car length between you and the car in front of you and someone will put a car in it.

Sorry, just couldn't help myself.

I have to agree with this one. I have done it multiple times in different vehicles and have never been bored.

Larry.. Know what you mean. It is not just L A.. For some reason, people just can't stand to let that space in front of you go "unoccupied". It is not "excitement", it is just "stupidity". and we can't fix stupid....

The Million Dollar Highway...550 in CO between Durango and Ouray. That last section is exciting to say the least.

First time driving the Alaskan Highway with so much history and scenery was special for us...never knew what was around the next turn.


CO 550 and UT12 are also favorites for beauty and excitement.


Hwy 50 across Nevada for solitude along with Hwy 2 in Montana coming from the east. You'll soon realize how Montana got called "Big Sky Country".


Idaho 21 at Banks eastward to Stanley picking up 75 to Challis and 93 north to Missoula is great because we love following rivers, camping at national forests along the rivers and fishing.


Hwy 101 from the Olympic Peninsula down the coast into California for the Redwoods (not to be confused with Hwy 1). There are so many stops to be had and wonderful lighthouses in Washington and Oregon. (We've given tours.)


Hwy 20 in Washington coming from the east at Twisp. It gets better and better.


Hwy 84 in New Mexico from Espanola to Pagosa Springs, CO - Georgia O'Keefe country.


There are many more that are favorites of ours due to solitude, beauty and excitement.


Driving to Alaska is tops for wildlife; from the Canadian border through Yukon and into Alaska. Yellowstone comes in second for wildlife, especially in spring with the new babies, but there are a LOT more people to contend with.


Any drive where you can view the Grand Tetons in Wyoming is breathtaking especially if they have a topping of snow.


Have you noticed we don't do interstates?
