There are 8 National Scenic Byways in Utah and 22 drives Utah Scenic Byways throughout the state. It is hard to drive through the state without seeing some wonderful scenery.

Even I-70 which is not on either list has a very scenic drive through the San Rafael Swell west of Green River with several very worthwhile reststops you should take just to soak it all in.

Highway 12 between Bryce National Park and Torrey has been designated an All-American Road one of only 27 in the U.S. It is a wonderful road.

Even if you just drive through the state there are several scenic ways to do so.
Heading north from SLC to WY? Take off of I-80 to Hwy 40 towards Kamas. Then take hyw 150- The Mirror Lake Highway through the Western Uintas.
Wanting a slower route south from SLC to LV? Detour to hwy 6 at Spanish Fork and then head south on hwy 89 through the heart of central Utah.
Going to Jackson WY? North of SLC at Brigham City take hwy 89 north through Logan and Bear Lake.
