10 Stops You Can't Miss on an I-40 Road Trip

One of the coolest cross-country trips a traveler can take is along I-40. The third longest interstate in the United States, the route runs all the way from Barstow, California to Wilmington, North Carolina (that's a 36-hour drive from end-to-end, in case you're wondering). Yet, it’s not the length that makes I-40 appealing for travelers. Rather, it’s the amazing and unique sights that decorate this stretch of highway.
