North Carolina Byways

The N.C. Department of Transportation has designated 60 scenic byways to give visitors and residents a chance to experience a bit of North Carolina history, geography and breathtaking scenery while raising awareness for the protection and preservation of these treasures.

The byway routes are carefully selected as safe and interesting alternatives to the faster-pace and commercial areas found along North Carolina’s major highways and interstates.

Travelers can really get to know North Carolina’s people and communities and see the diverse beauty the Tar Heel state has to offer – from the high peaks of the Appalachian Mountains to the fertile hills of the Piedmont to the marshes, sounds and beaches of the coast.
