The Scenic Route of See Rock City & Other Destinations is a school version of the original musical that has been adapted to be more community-friendly. Most of the original script remains unchanged with the exception of the Coney Island scene/songs. Much of the language has been changed to suit more youthful audiences and performers. The original version contains a glossary of the suggested terms that can be substituted in lieu of curse words; THIS EDITION applies these changes, making this musical an ideal choice for schools and other youth-based performing groups.

A wanderer believes his destiny is written on rooftops along the North Carolina Interstate. A young man yearns to connect with intelligent life in Roswell, New Mexico. A woman at the Alamo steps out of the shadow of her grandparents' idealized romance to take a chance on love. Three estranged sisters cruise to Glacier Bay to scatter their father's ashes. Two high school boys face unexpected fears in the Coney Island Spook House. A terrified bride-to-be ponders taking the leap... over Niagara Falls.

With a book full of humor and humanity, and a score that incorporates pop, rock, folk and more, each story builds on the last to create a vivid travelogue of Americans learning to overcome their fears and expectations in order to connect."
