To anyone who says that nature lovers can't be driving enthusiasts, National Geographic has something to tell you, but it isn't "take a hike" – it's "take a drive." The society's Traveler magazine has just released a new list of their favorite driving roads in the world, and the rundown has itching to trade the information superhighway for the plain ol' highway.

Naturally, the National Geographic Traveler "Drives of a Lifetime" list is comprised mostly of roads in the United States, from California's Pacific Coast Highway to New York's Hudson River Valley and everywhere in between. But if you feel like venturing a little further north, Traveler's highlighted some choice routes through the Canadian Rockies all the way to the Cabot Trail in the Maritime provinces, and they've thrown in some island and European destinations for good measure.

So pack the car, use up that vacation time and follow the link to check out the full list. Outraged that you're favorite scenic switchback didn't make the list? Add your submissions in the comments section below.
