Spend the morning just driving north from Spokane, WA to see what on the route. Better than typical highway with snow mountain view and multiple lakes, large area of forest. However, it's still a Highway Route, not something worth planing to experience.

Along with the 99 this road was the original western border to border road. Starts out at the Mexican border and terminates at the Canadian border. Most of the road in SoCal is overlaid with the I-15. There are older portions that are still drivable...More

I drove this because it was necessary for my trip. It may be historic, but there is nothing that special to see. If you want historic roads, go to Rt 66 or the Lincoln Highway.

395 is narrow and beautiful. Some people become impatient and want to pass when it is not safe. There are a lot of serious wrecks that could have been avoided. Enjoy the small towns along the way while heading north to Canada. One great stop...More

The drive on 395 between Spokane and Sandpoint is well worth the extra time. It goes into the foothills and follows the Pend Oreille river. The views are spectacular and it is a must to stop and take advantage of trails and short driving detours....More
