PHOENIX — Arizonans are no stranger to gorgeous drives.
After all, few people can boast that they routinely spot numerous mountain ranges during rush hour or can drive two hours and be in pine trees.
Thanks to Business Insider, Arizonans can now boast that they have one of 28 roads in the world that simply need to be driven in a person’s lifetime.
The website said U.S. 163 from the Arizona border through Utah’s Monument Valley is one of the world’s best drives. And with views like the one below, who are we to question that?
If U.S. 163 looks familiar, it’s likely that you’ve seen it on television, in a movie or in a video game.
The road most famously appeared in “Forrest Gump.” In the scene, Gump announced that he is ceasing his cross-country running and returning home to Alabama while standing on U.S. 163.
If you’re looking to catch a ride on the scenic byway, you can pick up U.S. 163 from Arizona on the Navajo Nation. It connects to U.S. 160 just south of Kayenta. The road will take you through the town and across the Utah border, where you’ll enter Monument Valley.
