About Byways

Climb every mountain,
Search high and low,
Follow every byway,
Every path you know.

There are over 4 million miles of roads in the United States. Some of them are major highways, acting as arteries for traffic around the nation. But the vast majority of them are smaller roads that take you to the unique areas where life happens.

At Byways.org, our goal is to promote those unique areas, and encourage you to take the highways and byways that will get you there. We think our nation is unique, amazing, and worth exploring. So we offer articles and ideas to help you along your way.

We hope you find the posts on this site useful, and share in our fascination for exploring our country. And if you have an interesting idea we should cover, please share it.
