America’s Byways® is the umbrella term used for the collection of 150 distinct and diverse roads designated by the U.S. Secretary of Transportation. America’s Byways® include National Scenic Byways and the premier byways are designated as All-American Roads. America’s Byways® are gateways to adventures where no two experiences are the same.
Byways do not start as part of America’s Byways® collection. They start as a group of people or a community passionate about preserving, protecting, and sharing the unique intrinsic qualities available in their area.
National, state, or just-starting-out, byways are the very fabric of how the United States was made. See below for byways by designation…as comprehensive as we can make it.
