The University of Minnesota Tourism Center was contracted to complete an annotated bibliography of quality of life dimensions of scenic byways and then make recommendations for further research to guide a larger impact study. The bibliography is part of a larger economic impact study of 2 Minnesota Scenic Byways being conducted by University of Minnesota Extension, Community Economics. The goal of the bibliography phase of the project is to determine whether there are existing references that document and can direct research to assess if and how byways contribute to the quality of life. As defined by the legislation (U.S. Code, Title 23, Section 162), a “scenic byway” recognizes “roadways having outstanding scenic, historic, cultural, natural, recreational, and archaeological qualities”. There are many resources available nationally and in Minnesota that describe the scenic byways program, individual byways, and the characteristics and programs available along each byway.
