What's Your Favorite Drive?

Steven Ginsberg, The Post's transportation editor and the mastermind of our Sunday commuter page, is looking for your ideas on a commuter page project.

Here's a note from Steven:

"Doesn't it seem like the view on Washington area roads is almost always the same: the bumper on the car in front of you? Maybe you get a glimpse of the occasional sound wall.

"Believe it or not, there actually are quite a few fairly scenic drives in the Washington region. The George Washington Parkway pops to mind. Parts of Route 15 are gorgeous.

"Now that the leaves are starting to fall and you may actually want to take a leisurely Sunday drive, we're compiling a list of favorite area roads or stretches of roads. Send your thoughts and ideas to commuter@washpost.com."

I can add that both Maryland and Virginia are very proud of their scenic drives. Virginia has a list you can read online by using this link. And here's a link to where Maryland keeps its stockpile of information about scenic byways. It's hard to think of a densely populated city like Washington as having many scenic drives, but we do have Rock Creek Parkway and Beach Drive. I'll be curious to see your nominees from across the region.
