From the Atlantic to the Pacific, if you're crossing the country through the southern part of the US, you'll be spending time on Interstate 10. Interstate 10 will take you through some of the most astonishing scenic landscapes our USA has to offer.

 

This blog covers 5 stops that you need to see to make your road trip a more memorable adventure:

 

1. White Sands National Park & Missile Range

It's a small trek from I-10 to the newly designated White Sands National Park but it's definitely worth the detour. White Sands National Park is located in New Mexico and completely surrounded by the White Sands Missile Range.

You don't want to miss the White Sands Missile Range Museum either. The museum has complete information about the US nuclear program, space adventures, and the development of rocket technology.

The Missile Park is where you'll be snapping some photos as it consists of roughly 60 different rockets. All these rockets were used by the US in combat between World War 2 and the Gulf War.

 

2. San Antonio River Walk

One of the best parts about San Antonio is the city's River Walk. On the banks of the San Antonio River, you'll find restaurants, museums, parks, shops, and a lot more lined up for your delight. Touring the river from a boat or spending the evening strolling along the River Walk will allow you to absorb extraordinary views.

3. Caverns Of Sonora

It's always good to stretch on a road trip. So, stop your ride and head underground to the calm Caverns of Sonora for a change of scenery. This stunning cave offers a tour of tunnels loaded with spectacular rock formations including "cave bacon".

 

4. Chico's Tacos

An entire third of the Interstate 10 is located through Texas. The road crosses the Lone Star state and its best parts. You can grab some cheap, quick bites at local favorite Chico's Tacos as you travel through El Paso. Here, you can enjoy some deep-fried taco deliciousness smothered in tomato sauce and topped with a healthy dose of shredded cheese.

 

5. Disneyland
