Huffington Post: Great River Road "prettiest" drive in U.S.

LA CROSSE, Wis. -- You won't have to travel far to take a trip on the most scenic roadway in the U.S. At least according to the the Huffington Post.

The media outlet has declared the Great River Road Scenic Byway in Wisconsin the prettiest drive in the nation.


The byway follows highway 35 passing through nearly three dozen communities on the 250 mile stretch of road. All of which is along the Mississippi River. "I think it all goes back to the fact that you have this great river right here, and just the idea of the bluffs and the river, it's such a great ride," says Dave Clements from the La Crosse Area Convention and Visitor's Bureau.

The Great River Road edged out a highway in Hawaii for the title.
