The Natchez Trace and the Arroyo Seco get a whole lot closer on this engaging website designed to showcase the scenic highways in the United States. The Federal Highway Administration sponsors the site, and it is managed by the National Scenic Byways Online project at Utah State University. The site includes an interactive map of the various byways, and visitors can also read tales from travelers who have recently made journeys on these roads. Visitors should be sure to check out the "Budget-Friendly Tips" area to learn about how to make an excursion more affordable. Moving on, the "Byway Activities" area includes listings of activities close to these highways in the areas of bird watching, camping, winter sports, and seventeen other categories. Also, visitors can sign up to receive their RSS feed and send along their contact information to receive a physical brochure on the byways.
