10 Horrible States to Drive Through
Road-trip season is around the bend. Unfortunately, to get to some good spots – New York, the Pacific Northwest, back home to Texas – you have to travel through complete crap.
Other than Chicago and Lakeshore Drive, Illinois is da pits. Joliet, Gurnee, Rockford, Bloomington-Normal, so much ugh.
Boring and more boring. Plus, there’s a pricey toll road from Kansas City to Wichita. They should be paying drivers to travel through Kansas, not the other way around.
8. NEW JERSEY
Does this even require an explanation? The dreadful, traffic-y New Jersey Turnpike. Traveling alongside New Jersey people. The absolute worst. At least they pump your gas for you (which is actually highly irritating).
Finally out of Jersey! Yippee! Wait, now we’re in Delaware, which also slaps motorists with a toll to drive the five minutes it takes to get through this industrial wastepile.
Yup. You guessed it. More tolls. And fat chance finding a gas station bathroom that’s open after midnight in freaking Maryland.
