I'm going to say Tail of the dragon, Cherohala Skyway, Blue Ridge parkway from personal experience. The videos/pics I've seen showing the Pacific coast highway look really nice and would be neat to drive it.

@Silver Supra If were adding Road courses mine would be Watkins Glen (pre chicane in back section). Porsche 962 set back strait speed record 212mph. 1992 Davy Jones in the Jaguar XJR14 sets the record as North Americas fastest Road course at 150.334mph on the short course and i was there with my dad. Fun times and Badass cars.

7 mile bridge one of my favorite places in the whole world. the rest not so sure. lombard st. no way. and what exactly are we driving on these roads? i noticed the 3rd one looks like a dirt road. denali highway. uuuummmm nope. not for supras. more like land cruiser. also are these roads without picture taking 90 year old 14mph driving with a turn signal on and looking the rear view mirror the whole time drivers? if so then i would consider these to be drivers roads then. but I'm guessing not.

The Dragon is not scenic, and totally sucks during motorcycle season. Cherohala Skyway is boring and the views aren't that great. Blue Ridge Parkway definitely has the best views on the East coast.

Seven Mile Bridge is no fun, especially if you get stuck behind some dick haling his boat at 35mph.

^ great points about what effects the pleasure of the drive besides just the road itself (e.g. traffic). I recall driving east from central Idaho over the mountains into Wyoming and then up into Grand Teton and Yellowstone and it was a spectacular drive but there was almost nobody else on the road at that time since it was before the tourists hit the national parks. A month or more later it could be a traffic jam.

SET the speed at what you like,not what you want.
SIV? Punch it!
There are way cool rollers in the desert to even get AIR on.
Mostly boring drive,I'll warn you. 90 is about right.

Driving anywhere in that region is fun and scenic. Our experience, even during tourist season, is that only the actual tourist attractions are crowded and not that many vehicles on the roads around them. Of course, when you find a caravan, it is probably headed by a truck pulling a camper pulling a boat!

I try and drive the Blue Ridge Parkway every spring and fall. I love it. I go with my car club and we camp out each time. I highly recommend it to anyone within a reasonable distance.

As an added bonus that is awesome craft beer country.
