Scenic Roads

Designating a National Scenic Road

All-American Road

To receive an All-American Road designation, the roadway must meet the requirements and criteria of a National Scenic Byway, with several additions.


The All-American Road should safely accommodate conventional tour buses.

There must be a demonstration of the extent to which enforcement mechanisms are being implemented by communities along the highway in accordance with the corridor management plan.

User facilities (such as overlooks and food services) should be available for travelers.


The road or highway must meet at least two of the intrinsic qualities.

The characteristics associated with the intrinsic qualities best represent the nation and may contain one-of-a-kind features that do not exist elsewhere.

The road or highway must be considered a destination unto itself.
