Big Darby Plains Scenic Byway A State Scenic Byway
What is a Scenic Byway? For travelers, scenic byways provide an antidote to the monotony of highway travel. They open up vistas and introduce us to places and features that we might otherwise pass by. Byways can be rural, suburban or urban. They can run hundreds of miles or just a short jaunt over to the next town.
