Best/Most Fun Roads to drive: Houston

So guys, what do you think are the most fun roads to drive on?

Personally I love the part of 45 right in downtown, northbound, when there are no/few other drivers. You come off that elevation and it's a nice straightway all the way to that big dip that everyone brakes at.

Also, a nice small one is the NASA Bypass in Webster. A couple of good curves, no places for cops to wait as long as you're going eastbound.

There is a section of Westpark tollway that is just over a mile long, the shoulders are too small to park on. It's in a trench so at one end you can see all the way to the opposite end to see if there is any other vehicles on it.

Can't say speeds or encourage any unsafe driving habits as per the rules of FF but let's just say it's nice and straight.

A few members say there are some twisties somewhere up north near Matsuo's place.

There are some short twisties of Hwy 6.

Some long straights close to Paul in Rosenburg and Wallis Tx

Some twisties in the Magnolia area and also some going towards the Woodlands Hotel, off Woodlands Pkwy.

Rankin Rd used to be fun until the cops showed up (when I was younger). Same for Westheimer on Saturday nights.

The most twisties I've seen here are around Allen parkway and that road near there were we're photo shooting on....Memorial??? Goes on for a couple miles next to a park. Do have to watch out for cops.

Also the new highway link from Nasa rd 1 to 45. Couple of elevated curves that twists back and forth and go up and down.

As Swift mentioned up though Conroe and Sam Houston Forest.

Bay Area Blvd between Redbluff and The park. Usually no cops until you get to the park. Twisty and scenic for a couple miles.

Some other roads out here on the east side off of I-10 heading north. Kinda like the Sam Houston stuff. Scenic, twisty, 2 lane and go up and down in elevation.
