Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-5 in Northern California


California is the last state on Interstate 5's journey along the west coast. Since the state is so large, I decided to divide it in the same way The Rand McNally atlas does. This posting will deal with I-5 from the border with Oregon to Exit 423 which is west of Newman. This interstate goes through the cities of Redding, Sacramento and Stockton. Attractions that are within a couple hours of Interstate 5 include Lassen Volcanic National Park, Yosemite National Park, and San Francisco.

Please share with other drivers your experiences as to which exits are best for single travelers or anyone for that matter. Reasons for your choice may include the safety of the surrounding area, the availability of good hotels and restaurants or proximity to the interstate. Please make sure you give the exit number or a description of the location. For example, when I discuss I-40, I would recommend Exit 145 in Oklahoma City. Many hotels and restaurants were located at this exit and I felt safe in the area. This exit was very convenient for easily continuing west without the hassle of dealing with early morning rush hour traffic.
