   good description of some nice roads
We wanted to use this to make our trip a bit more interesting and find great routes aside from the typical freeways. We only traveled to Florida, Alabama and Tennessee with this guide. Some routes are not recommended for RV travel due to a lot of local traffic and stoplights. Also, we found some really nice roads that were not listed. Nice to be back home, said one that was nice got us somewhere from north of Ocala Florida towards the panhandle. This road was unlisted but had beautiful flowering trees lined the entire length of the road. Next time I will pay more attention to name and location. I was surprised to find that it wasn't listed. So it seems there are plenty of roads less traveled that should be in the guide, Tunick said. We have awesome routes for day trips near where I live in Central Florida, so they could find a mention. Thanks for the book and I am looking forward to making a few more of the scenic drives in the future.

   A Valuable Book for Travel
I absolutely love this book. You can plan a trip following all the beautiful highways in the country. That is exactly what I did - my summer RV trip follows 3. Also included are maps, which come in handy when without cell service. Instead of visiting every state in the US, I may just do every scenic highway and byway. Must have! It is a must have!

   Great book
To research a trip you are going to take - or start a list of bucket of ones you would like to take. Prefer hard to copy, too hard to 'use in route' electronically. We have found it to be accurate on drives with which we have familiarity.

   CAN'T WAIT, CAN'T WAIT, CAN'T WAIT!
To celebrate winning my battle with pancreatic cancer I am going on an epic 10,000-mile camping trip! I will be using this guide for my entire route. It's great to be back home, said Blair. My favorite route so far will be the drive between Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park.

   Quantity not Quality
It's pretty disappointing. The entire National Geographic seems to be more interested in the quantity of entries rather than quality information. Lite on details, lite on pictures, lite on maps. It's hard to compete with the vastness of information on the internet, but this is not what I was hoping for, Mr. Dhaliwal said.

   Planning a Trip?
Deciding to take some time and travel our wonderful United States was made so much easier with this book to guide us through some unknown areas, what to look for and the easiest routes in and around.

   Bought it for a gift. I guess I didn't ...
Bought it for a present. It's just that I didn't pay enough attention to the size. I thought it would be 5x8 but it's actually 12. On the other hand, it's more compact.

   More scenic byways needed to be included.
Lots of ideas for scenic travel, but I was disappointed there were not more unknown roads to discover. Commentary is clear and includes tips for those exploring, but I wish more scenic state highways were included. Most of the time, the people involved were not unfamiliar.

   Nat Geo Guide to Scenic Highways.... Essential for your next roadtrip! Recommended.
Having a number of National Geographic travel guides and maps, I sent this to a close friend for her upcoming road trip. She loves it, and has undertaken a road trip through various Southwest and Midwest regions, and found it accurate and illuminating. Recommended. For my personal treks to wherever, NatGeo provides the best trekking resources and information.
