American Road Trip Talk

Saving our Scenic Byways

As a reader of American Road Magazine, you know we are all about enjoying and preserving America’s Scenic Byways. They are not just great vacation destinations but are also vital economic links to a host of communities offering entertainment, opportunities to learn and appreciate our heritage and taste the wonderful variety of American cuisine; but this is a delicate ecosystem that needs support. Anaise Berry, our guest, is the chair of the National Scenic Byway Foundation, a volunteer organization formed in 2003 to support byways around the nation. Our own Becky Repp, General Manager of American Road Magazine, was recently named to this prestigious board. In our conversation Anaise will tell you more about the critical mission that the Foundation performs since Federal Funding was removed a few years ago.
