Rivers make natural travel routes, and drivers can find great scenery by following their path through the countryside, says Anne Banas, executive editor of SmarterTravel.com. "There are famous majestic rivers, and these have become iconic destinations throughout the United States," she says. Some routes are designated as scenic byways by states or the federal government, making it easy to stay on course. Banas shares favorite waterside roads with Larry Bleiberg for USA TODAY.

Goshen Pass
Virginia
Although it's not a long drive, the views are spectacular heading up the Maury River, which skirts Washington and Lee University near Lexington. A few miles later, the river joins up with State Route 39 and passes through Goshen Pass, which is also a wildlife management area. Kayakers love the whitewater run, but the river's also popular with bathers cooling off on a hot afternoon. virginia.org
