Surprisingly seven of the eighteen roadways are located in the United States.

Some of our favorites include:
The Cherohala Skyway which runs from the mountains of North Carolina through Tennessee.

Lombard Street located in San Francisco, California. This is San Francisco’s most recognizable street with it’s curvy streets and vibrant shrubbery. The road was previously a straight road with a 27% grade which was too steep for most vehicles to climb. The eight switchback turns were added in 1922 to reduce the grade, making the road safer for drivers and pedestrians.

When the New York Times spent 36 hours in Nashville, TN, reporter Keith Mulvihill found that there was more to Music City than music.
In Nashville, “there’s more to Nashville than country music, especially in the once-sleepy neighborhoods that now beat to a different rhythm,” says Mulvihill, “districts like East Nashville and 12 South thrive with lively bars, stylish restaurants and a young, eclectic crop of music makers, churning out everything from bluegrass to punkabilly.”
Some of Nashville’s highlights feature shopping, dining, entertainment and tourism. Treasure hunt at the vintage boutique, Venus and Mars or cool off at Las Paletas, a small shop that makes popsicles from fresh fruit and vegetables. Prided by being Nashville’s first restaurant to earn certification from the Green Restaurant Association, enjoy pleasant seasonal American dishes at Tayst.
To top off your trip to Nashville, check out the new beats of the city by walking over to East Nashville where the trendy neighborhood with newer venues is alive and thriving. Then, wind down in the dark wood and dim chandeliers of the Patterson House.
From music to pre-civil war, the history in Nashville is overwhelming. The Country Music Hall of Fame can be found in the historic Music Row District, familiar territory to legends Elvis and Dolly Parton. Relive the 18th century pre-civil war days at Belle Meade Plantation where visitors can view a posh carriage house, slave quarters and the silver-capped hooves of Iroquois.
