Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-10 in Western Texas and New Mexico

Las Cruces, New MexicoImage via WikipediaThe western section of Interstate 10 begins at Exit 462 and travels through Texas to the state border at El Paso. This section of I-10 covers an area that is not as populated as the eastern section of Texas. For now I am going to include the small portion of I-10 that is in New Mexico. Perhaps in the future I will do separate posts for each. Fort Stockton and El Paso are the Texas cities joined by I-10. New Mexico's section of I-10 cuts through the southwest corner of the state connecting Las Cruces, Deming and Lordsburg. Watch the speed limit signs in Texas. The state is in the process of increasing the speed limit!!

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.
