Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-10 in Arizona

"The Stack" of Interstates 17 and 10...Image via WikipediaInterstate 10 travels across the beautiful deserts of southern Arizona. Major cities along this highway are Tucson and Phoenix. Make sure to avoid the Phoenix area during rush hour traffic. Of particular concern is the area known as The Stack, which is the juncture of I-10 and I-17. Just west of Phoenix is a sign that always brings a smile to my face. Two joined signs give the wise advice: State Prison Next Exit/Do Not Pick Up Hitchhikers. Nearby attractions to I-10 include Saguaro National Park and the Maricopa Mountains.

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.
