The all-in-one trip planner and travel guide-now totally revised and updated-will steer you down the most scenic road every time. From Florida''s Road to Flamingo to Hawaii''s Oahu Coastal Loop . . . from British Columbia''s Sea to Sky Highway to Cape Cod''s Sandy Shores . . . each featured road trip is pictured in stunning full color and described in vivid text, keyed to an easy-to-follow newly revised map. Whether you choose a drive in a far corner of the continent or a back road in your own state, this book is your ticket to North America''s most beautiful byways.
Drives are grouped in four pictured-packed sections-Western, Mountain, Central, and Eastern states and provinces-and are accompanied by detailed, easy-to-use maps. New drives featuring some of Canada''s most stunning destinations have been added. As a bonus, handy Trip Tip sidebars include:
- best season to travel
- nearby attractions
- special events
- "learn more" contact information including website addresses
A special feature called Star Routes offers thumbnail sketches of shorter but especially scenic roads located in the same region as the main tours. Additional boxes highlight distinctive characteristics of the areas, including local plants, animals, customs, foods, and a variety of historical events.
Whether on the road or in the comfort of your easy chair, this newly revised Reader''s Digest travel guide will be a welcome companion.
"Obviously, some drives are created more equal than others. But Reader''s Digest does show that scenic beauty is endemic to every part of the country. Even if you can''t hit the road and drive them all, this updated version...uses gorgeous color photos to show you what you could see if you did. And each drive is accompanied by a helpful map to let your imagination guide you along the way."
"Often times when we are on a cross-country trip, we use the interstate highway system for most of the trip. Unfortunately, this causes us to miss out on a lot of the scenic beauty that America offers. There is a book published by Readers Digest entitled
The Most Scenic Drives in America that can be used to deal with this problem. This book contains 120 scenic drives throughout the entire country."
