Smile Favorite drives in MA/Northeast

Hi - I wanted to know where are some of your favorite roads to drive? Post pics if you have them. Here are some of mine:

1. storrow/memorial drive around 5 - 6 am....seeing the view of the charles early morning is refreshing.
2. on Mass Pike going into Boston into the Pru tunnel....it's nice to drive into a brightly lit road.
3. on Stuart St where the John Hancock Building is. Call me vain but I love seeing the reflection of my car when I drive down it. Just make sure you don't stare too long, as there could be someone's car in front of you....

Totally agreed.

The Kank is a fantastic drive. Taking Rt. 3 on the way there or back (or both) is a nice drive too. As someone who drives ~150 miles almost every weekday, I like to avoid the interstates when going on a nice cruise for fun.

I was going to mention this road, but I felt it would be too vague for alot of people. I use this road to get in and out of Boston from my home, so i've enjoyed this road for 15+ years..

drive north on 93, take exit for Lincoln NH(exit 32, rte 112) and drive east all the way until you hit north conway. Plenty of biking, hiking, etc. in north conway, traffic is heavy on weekends since lots of tourists head up north. Drive on Rt 16, 25, to Rt. 104 South if you want to head back home passing Lake Winnipesaukee or take the Kangamangus back to 93 if you want to test out your suspension on the turns...

That's a 6 hour drive right there. Looks like a lot of fun though.
