North Carolina's Averasboro Historic Byway

From the pamphlet.

Always happy to see states arranging any sort of a drive.  That is pure nirvana to roadies.

And this one is just 23 miles, but a bit of time if you stop to look at the bridge sites, skirmishes, churches and plantations along the way.  It runs from Fayetteville to Exit 71 on the interstate.  Plus, Averasboro was the name of a Civil War battle near the end of the war, plus there are two skirmish sites.

The byway runs parallel and near to I-95 most of the way, so it easy off, easy on.  Much of it is on US-301.
