Scary and Precarious Roads!

Summer road trip time - why not consider scaring the crap out of your family?

The road to Big Sur (above) is sure to separate boys from men. Highway 1 is an intense cliff hugging drive along the coast for 122 miles from Monterey to Morro Bay.

Independence Pass from Aspen to Leadville in Colorado.  Highway 82 is a 187-mile white knuckler. And if that's not enough, you take the over 1000-foot tall highest suspension bridge in the world!

Great Smoky Mountains National Park "Tail of the Dragon" in North Carolina/Tennessee Highway 129 takes you on 11 miles of awesome views.

Clinton Road, Passaic County, New Jersey.  Seriously paranormal, "If you are visiting the road at midnight, stop by the bridge at Dead Man’s Curve for a game of catch. Toss pennies into the water, and the ghost of a young boy will toss them back.  A gray wolf with red eyes will stalk you from the bushes.  Satan worshippers will hang hang up their bloody clothes to dry, right next to the mutilated animals.  The ruins of a castle reside in the woods.  If you find yourself in the wrong section of woods, expect to be chased out by Satanists or the Ku Klux Klan.  Weird animals, speculated to be survivors and interbred specimens from the abandoned nearby zoo, Jungle Habitat, from which most of the animals escaped. A dangerous curve that has been the demise of many an unwary driver is rumored to be heavily haunted. Phantom pickup trucks will gladly escort you from the road. Well, chase you. Weird lights flying in the sky will draw you attention upward, away from the blood stains on the pavement."

Archer Avenue in Chicago.  This road was made famous by the ghost referred to as Resurrection Mary.  This famous ghost has shown up along the roadway for many decades and sometimes even reportedly hitchiked rides and then disappeared. You might want to drive this in the dark and see if you come upon a girl in a party dress wandering the roadside outside the Resurrection Cemetery.
