Plan your next road trip with the National Scenic Byways Program's new website

From California's State 1 along the Big Sur coast to southwest Colorado's San Juan Skyway, the National Scenic Byways Program celebrates America's most spectacular routes. Plan your next road trip with the program's recently relaunched website ( www.byways.org). "We want people to understand the diversity of experiences that our byways offer ― beautiful vistas, hiking, festivals, and cultural activities," says program head Rob Draper of the Federal Highway Administration. With the site's detailed maps, suggestions for convenient places to visit, and photos of the scenery along the way, all you'll have to worry about is where to get your jerky.
