Probably gonna do another week in the mountains this summer and trying to decide where to stay. Probably between the Banner Elk area and the Brevard area.

So far, in my somewhat limited experience the most scenic road I've seen is Hwy 28 between Highlands and Franklin along the Cullasaja River.

That was probably the prettiest road in NC I've been on. This was when you went to Nantahala right? I loved it there & want to go back.

I'd say that's one of the prettiest areaa in North Carolina

On the old Hwy 74 (now ALT 74) between Lake Lure & Ashville/Blue Ridge Parkway.

There's a stretch of switchbacks on the side of the mtn where you can actually look down on the hwy below. Great scenery, great road to take the Corvette on during the Summer. (Winter it can get icy and slick.) Gorgeous scenery though.

Bethel NC....

Edit: not to be confused with Bethel NC on the east coast. It's in Haywood County. Everyone calls it "Gods country" here. Beautiful.

I live only about 10 miles from Highlands and Hwy 64 to Franklin is an awesome drive with plenty of places to stop and be amazed. Now, if you're trying to get somewhere on a timeline it's the worst possible road to travel during the busy season(s).

There's also a Bethel in Watauga county.

Of course, the parkway is the best.

But as far as the others, we went from Chattanooga to Nantahala a couple of years ago, and parts of US 74 are absolutely beautiful
