    When I need to go for a drive to relax I take like going down the one 2lane road by my firehouse, it goes through the woods and ends at the water. Its only a 30mph zone so its a mid-speed relaxing cruise and not to many cars so I can drive how I want.

    Default western roads

    A classic road trip is US-89 from Mexico to Canada. It takes you through, or near by: 11 National Parks (Saguaro, Petrified Forest, Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capital Reef, Canyonlands, Arches, Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier) 22 National Monuments; and 3 National Recreation Areas.

    A fantastic day trip is Utah's SR-12. A Top-10 National Scenic Byway, it's 122-miles start in Red Canyon, it winds through the northern portion of vibrant Bryce Canyon National Park, Dixie National Forest, past Kodachrome Basin State Park (with its fossilized geysers), through the new Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Escalante Canyons, crosses over aspen-covered Boulder Mountain, and ends up in Torrey, just 5 miles west of Capitol Reef National Park.
    Are we having fun, yet?

    A good day trip would be head out to Skyline Drive, run that down with 211 to 33 (these run through George Washington National Forest) west into West Virginia and then take your pick on the back way north. Usually 220 to Smokehole road then some others in the middle. I thinkg Rt 28 and Rt 42 then cut back either on Rt 55 or up to Rt 50 and then Linton Hall Rd to Mt Carmel Rd or River Rd back towards home.

    Hwy 11 North of Thunder Bay Ontario is a great drive if you pick the right time of year.

    You guys out on the left coast have some beautiful drives. I live on the east coast and my favorite is driving the Blueridge Parkway thru NC and VA

    OH MY GOD those roads scare me! we like to vacation up there because of all the nature, but GOD do the big rigs like to take up other lanes! We almost got fun off the road! I'm glad someone likes them though.

    I like driving down dirt roads through nature. They dont even need to be dirt. As long as i can get through it and there's greenery around, i'm relaxed. We have a couple old logging trails that grew back up, but the road is still there. They're fun after it raines too!
