Well, I-10 dont go anywhere near Dallas, Texas. Hope that didnt disapoint you.:)

But there is Mobile, New Orleans, they Bayou country, Houston and lots of stuff along and near that route.
I have never vacationed down there so dont know specifics to tell you.

I use I10 almost day after day, and I will attest to Mexicans hauling junk cars from Miami to Mexico. The only good spot I would think of after Pensacola, is New Orleans...after that nothing special.:huh::hair::huh:

I-10 is rough as a cob once you get in Louisiana. At least it was 5 years ago when I last went through there. To answer your question though, not much to see or do right off I-10. I'm sure there is plenty to do a few miles off the beaten path.

It's a little better now,but used to be,if you got off I-75 and headed to Jacksonville - you better have a full tank of gas when you left 75!

It's been a few yrs since I've driven the road. But I was thinking it was 10.

It all depends on what you like. To name of few of the things that I have stopped to see over the years are the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola and the Batttleship Alabama and airpark in Mobile. If you like catfish eat at the Cock of the Walk on old Hwy 90 east of Mobile. Bellingrath Gardens west of Mobile would probably please the wife.If you are looking at parks and camping there are several nice ones in north Florida. The most awesome thing in Ms. at this time to me is to get off of 10 and go along the coast and look at some of the remaining damage from Katrina, mother nature gone wild.
In La. if you follow 10 you head to N.O. which is its own entainment but even if you don't stop just drive through and get a good idea of the vastness of the destruction there. Then up to Baton Rouge and the home of the National Champion LSU Tigers, be sure and drive around the campus you can't help but come away a better person.:bounce: Past Baton Rouge your in Cajun country, Breux Bridge, Lafayette some of the best restaurants in the country. Your on you own after that but if you've got some time there is quite a bit to do on the I-10 corridor.

Lots to do in NOLA........

Brand new Cabela's off I-10 in Gonzales.

Go to Bowie Outfitters in Baton Rouge- it's off of I-10

Once you are through Baton Rouge, go to Mulates in Breaux Bridge,

In Lafayette, look for Prejean's...... fine Cajun food and a live Zydeco band most nights.

I-40 is even better'n I-10, when you git out in west Texas and I-10 and I-20 come together you are officially in the middle of nowhere, and there ain't nuthin worth looking at past there...I done checked it out fer y'all.

Is there a Red Wolf Lodge near the Cabela's in LA. I love the one in Kansas City.

If you are headed west on I-10 it's on the left outside Gonzales.. it's a nice store. South of the Interstate. You can see it from the road.

California Motor Speedway (whatever the name is) is right beside I-10 but I reckon that's a little bit past Texas.

Mobile, a few restored wwII ships, Biloxi MS, gambling, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, for food, Houston, space center, San Antonio, Alamo and River walk, El Paso.

I am sure some on has already pointed out Dallas is not on I-10, That would be I-20 and I 10 is not near as rough a road as I 20 through Mississippi and Louisiana. And no one can explain the Interstates in west Texas, the craziest off ramps ever created.

Yep I was wrong, I was talking about I-20, haven't been on that stretch of road in 15 yrs.

One place I want to spend more time next time I pass that way is Vicksburg Miss.
I have always had an interest in Civil War history and there is lots to see there related to that.

Use to be little in the way of big attractions, Shreveport has casinos. Been about 8 years since I traveled I20 between Meridian Ms and Dallas.

Lot of farmland and pinetrees.

You might want to check out websites for Meridian MS, Jackson MS, Vicksburg MS, Monroe LA, Shreveport LA.
