Classic Americana combined with great scenic drives make for can’t-miss road trips across the country.

Highway Z, Missouri

23 of 31

The biggest peaks between the Blue Ridge and the Rockies, the Ozark Mountains offer a refreshing change of scene from the otherwise low-lying Great Plains. Here, winding roads like Hwy-Z cut through deep wooded canyons carved by powerful rivers. This road twists and turns through the area known as Devil’s Elbow, where a tight turn in the Big Piney River forms a deep and scenic gorge.

Where to Stop: Bikers and BBQ fans flock to the Elbow Inn (573-336-5375), a roadside shack that’s been in business for nearly a century.
