Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-5 in Southern California

The final segment of Interstate 5 in California stretches from Exit 418 to the Mexican border. I-5 runs through the San Joaquin Valley and then connects the cities of Los Angeles and San Diego. In the Los Angeles area other highways such as the 105, the 405 and the 605 connect to Interstate 5 in a north-south direction. Special care should be taken in this area to avoid rush hour traffic. Both Los Angeles and San Diego are places for long-term vacations, so if you recommend a hotel at your favorite exit, please note if it would be comfortable for a week or more.

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.
