What’s Ohio’s most scenic byway?
The Buckeye State is a natural beauty, full of several beautiful country, coastal and riverside roads just waiting for your vehicle to travel. The most magnificent scenic country roads in Ohio can be found throughout every region of this vast state, and they’re an absolute treat no matter the season. Immerse yourself in the majesty of stunning windshield views along these scenic routes. One of our favorite is the Amish Country Byway, a leisurely drive that harkens back to a simpler time in life, complete with rolling farmland and horse-drawn buggies. This byway is one that really forces you to slow down and enjoy the views.
