  1. Default Indianapolis to LA. Any suggestions??

    This will be my second time driving out West. The first trip I took 80 all the way and on my way back I took 70. I thought about taking 40 this time. Any suggestions? Feel free to post all of your tips. Did I mention I'm going alone? :-(

    Default Good idea

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I think if I were in your shoes, I'd be doing the exact same thing. I always enjoy taking a new route if time allows, and there's lots of things along I-40 to potentially stop at.

    How much time are you planning on spending on the road and what sort of things would you like to stop at? Do you plan on driving straight south to I-40, or will you cut diagonally via I-44 at St. Louis? That would put you along the path of Route-66, which might be of interest to you.

    You can also find more ideas for your trip in our Solo Travelers Section.

    Default Route 66, Definitely

    From St. Louis to LA, you will be following the famous Route 66. Often, it will be the road running right alongside the interstate. If you have the time, get off and enjoy it. Just be careful, you might get hooked. It will be a trip back into the past. There are still lots of old mon and pop motels, restaurants, and tourist traps.

    Not knowing how much time you have, you can always hop back on the interstate if you get behind.

    Keep on Down that Two Lane Highway. --RoadDog
