Favorite roads?

With spring here in the United States (weather will hopefully cooperate soon), driving season is nearly here! What are your favorite area roads to drive…?

New England is a dream to drive outside the big cities, especially in the fall.  There are a ship-load of scenic drives.

One of my fav's is Route 112 in NH (the Kancamagus Highway which was named after a famous Native American).  We call it the "Kank" for short and much of it runs right through the White Mountains National Forest.  It has a high point in elevation of around 3,000 ft and all kinds of scenic overlooks and other spots to stop & camp. picnic, swim, etc... It winds & turns and there are even several good stretches that are straight & you can hit the pedal & go pretty dang fast provided your car is well tuned and can cope with the thinner air.

I like driving south on route 306 from my town. It goes from suburbia to country to yuppie town. The yuppies don't know what to make of my side piped / slot magged '74.

Sweet! My Dad is from the greater Johnstown PA area ... & loved going back as a kid for the family reunions every summer ... b/c I so enjoyed those roads. The 1st time I was able to drive ... oh did I have a blast ... lol.
