The Federal Highway Administration in Wisconsin recently designated the Wisconsin Lake Superior Scenic Byway and the Door County Coastal Byway. The FHA designates particularly noteworthy and beautiful stretches to “recognize, preserve and enhance selected roads throughout the United States.”
The new Lake Superior Scenic Byway wraps alongside the waters of Lake Superior for 70 miles. Take in the beautiful drive through the Northwoods and stop for a short hike along Lake Superior.
The Door County Coastal Byway wraps 66 miles around the Door County peninsula taking you out to the tip and back down again. Enjoy the view of Lake Michigan along both sides, as your drive takes you through many quaint communities in Door County. Once you leave Sturgeon Bay, there isn’t a stop light for 66 miles. Think of Door County as the Cape Cod of the Northwest!
Wisconsin now has a total of five scenic byways recognized by the FHA. The Lower Wisconsin River Road, the Nicolet-Wolf River Scenic Byways and the Great River Road, which runs from Northern Minnesota along the Western edge of Wisconsin all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico, are the other three stretches.
