A 60-mile drive, part of the National Scenic Byway System, that has changed little in the last hundred years. The drive goes past farms, nineteenth-century springs and resorts, historic towns and buildings, and mountain scenery. Step back in time to when most people lived on farms or in small towns. The springs and spas of Monroe County once attracted thousands of visitors each year; the ailing who came seeking relief in the soothing mineral waters, and the rich who came to bathe and relax at luxury hotels. Special Attractions: Several former major spas and resorts, Indian Creek Covered Bridge, restored and historical Union, Rehoboth Church, Sweetsprings Valley, and Peters Mountain.
