Hello from the US of A
« on: March 16, 2017, 06:42:12 PM »

Hello fellow road enthusiasts! I look forward to discussing all things regarding the countries grand highways. I love to travel on big trips mostly on Interstate highways. My favorite section of Interstate highway is that of I-80 in the great state of PA. The scenerey is kind of breathtaking with the rolling hills and the farmland. As my first question on this forum I would like to know what highways you like to travel on most?

I like relaxing state highways. I'd rather have no services along the way but no traffic than a big highway with lots of traffic.

One of my favorite highways is US-277 south of Sonora, Texas. 90 miles of nothingness, wide shoulders, frequent passing lanes, a 75-mph limit, wonderful scenery, and hardly anyone else on the road.

Sounds like a pleasant strip to travel. I usually like speed limits between 65-75.

Love traveling through the section of I-40 through Arkansas, not just because I am a resident of the state, just because there is a section of the 40 where it bridges a valley and that valley is just so green!

The stretch between Ozark and Russellville heading to Little Rock. There is a valley that the 40 bridges and it's very scenic.

Welcome to the asylum from the great state of NC!

Assuming the answer you are looking for is my favorite stretch of interstate highway well that would be I-40 through the Pigeon River Gorge in eastern TN/western NC.

I-80 through PA is also beautiful (I haven't been through there since I was a teenager in the 80's though), as well as I-24 between Nashville and Chattanooga in TN.

Welcome to the forum!

As my first question on this forum I would like to know what highways you like to travel on most?

To be quite frank, I actually really like a variety of highways. I enjoy interstates and freeways a lot, but I also enjoy divided highways, two-lane roads, even smaller roads, and more. I love it all!  :hyper:

These sound like some really neat travel spots! What i like in a highway is for it to be mostly concrete, preferably grooved (not much for longitudinal grooving though). That way you can get that neat whistling noise when you drive. IDK why but I always liked it. its my favorite part of the road. What do you guys think of road whistling?

Welcome!

I really love driving on interstates, mostly because you can go so fast (at least out west).
I do however also enjoy scenic two lane roads, but usually after a while I find myself longing for the speed and ease of the interstate again and again.

Come to Arkansas sometime, you can go 70, plus a five over limit to top you out at 75!
