Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-10 & 1-12 in Louisiana

City of New Orleans montage composed of photos...Image via WikipediaWhen it runs through the southern section of Louisiana, Interstate 10 has a companion. Interstate 12  is a short highway that joins I-10 at its eastern and western exits. These interstates form an oval around Lake Pontchartrain and the surrounding area. Cities along I-10 include New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lafayette and Lake Charles. If visiting New Orleans is not an option of your trip, you will find using I-12 as a bypass of New Orleans will provide a shorter journey across Louisiana.

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.
