The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one's own
country as a foreign land.
The United States offers some of the best scenic routes in the world. Each one of its 50 states features
historical landmarks, breathtaking sites, and unforgettable scenery. Through the National Geographic Guide to
Scenic Highways and Byways, you are about to embark on a wonderful journey.
All it takes is a full tank of gas and an open mind to discover all the United States has to offer. Basically,
any state you select offers its own mini-vacation, and you can discover these unknown treasures through National
Geographic Guide to Scenic Highways and Byways. This wonderful, jam-packed book offers a list of 275 driving
adventures. Each section is filled with great descriptions which enable a person to plan his drive and get a preview
of the unexplored territory that awaits his viewing pleasure.
I was amazed at how many beautiful places I had never known existed. This book allowed me to discover new
landmarks that I plan to incorporate into next year’s vacation schedule. I was impressived to see that the 275 trips
have all been explored by National Geographic staff members. I think this fact alone sets this work far above similar
titles. This book will make you want to jump into your vehicle and take off to find them. Very highly recommended.
