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

Highway 50, Nevada

25 of 31

The stretch of U.S. Highway 50 dubbed the “Loneliest Road” is one of the great drives in the wide-open western U.S. The road is anything but boring; it climbs over ranges of pine- and juniper-covered mountains and winds past old mining camps and Pony Express outposts. The “loneliness” in the road’s name comes from its lack of civilization.

Where to Stop: In the semi–ghost town of Dayton, the Old Corner Bar has welcomed everyone from gold miners to Marilyn Monroe in its 150 years of existence.
