"seeing America"

  • Hi All,
    My pal Chris took a trip to California from Maryland- "to see America".
    However he spent his time on America's superslab all the way.
    So did he really see "America"?
    Are there trip plans and or maps that use secondary roads to get you off the Interstates?
    Thanks
    Wayne

  • Hi Wayne, welcome!
    Sure he saw a small part of America, as one can spend the whole life to see this large and beautiful country.
    Every time I cross the country (FL-CA-FL), i ride on any American road that I like, as any road has its own way to display the America.  For instance, in two more weeks, I will ride and see the historic route of the America: Route 66, which now has many parts that are named as I-57 or I-40.

  • In my research for my ride around the USA next year I came across the following website. http://byways.org/

    It appeals to me as I have no intention of covering too many miles on the Interstates, competing with large commercial vehicles and folk who are trying to get from A to B just as fast as they can!

  • Try Route 50 out of Washington DC going all the way to the west coast.  I took it from West Virginia to south of Denver and it was a great two lane blacktop road.  Small towns and scenic beauty all the way.
