Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-10 in California


The journey of Interstate 10 in California begins in the beautiful Mojave Desert. Near the eastern section of I-10, Joshua Tree National Park is a popular attraction. Halfway across the state I-10 enters a more populous area joining Palm Springs and Los Angeles before the highway ends in Santa Monica by the Pacific Ocean. Be careful to avoid the Los Angeles area during rush hour traffic. The 210 runs parallel to the 10 and the 110 and the 710 provide north-south highways that cross the 10. Attractions in the Los Angeles area are too numerous to mention, but the Getty Center off I-10 on the 405 is well worth a visit.

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.
