Hi. I'm planning a trip soon going through i10 from Florida to California. We'll be stopping at Tallahassee (FL), Baton Rouge (LA), San Antonio and El Paso (TX), and Phoenix (AZ) before arriving at the destination.
While we want to enjoy the trip, it's a moving truck, and we actually want to arrive quickly and safely rather than take longer to enjoy the sightseeings.
I've been doing some research about the Interstate, but have some questions left unanswered:
- Anyone have tips for decent (in price, location and safety) hotels in those cities? Don't know whether to stay close to i10, for ease, or drive into town for better places (again, tourism is not that high on the list)
- Any city or area among those that should be avoided?
- Also, are there tolls along the way on i10? Couldn't find any info on it anywhere...
Any and all tips are more than welcomed!
Thanks a lot in advance!
