The most boring freeway in California
I hereby declare I-505 to the most boring freeway in California.
I just got back from a little road trip up to the Northwest, and so for the first time, drove on I-505 on my way back to the Bay Area. I-505 is a connector freeway between I-5 at Dunnigan and I-80 at Vacaville, saving you the trip into Sacramento. I can now say that I know the answer to “What is between Vacaville and Dunnigan?” The answer is absolutely nothing. I was almost in awe of the boringness that surrounded me for that half hour we were driving on that road.
Now I know what you are thinking: What about I-5? Granted, there are parts of I-5 that are amazingly boring, but there are also parts that are beautiful. For example, the drive around Mt. Shasta is quite nice. But I am talking the most boring freeway–in its entirety. The 33 miles of I-505 wins that hands down. I haven’t traveled every freeway in California, but I am still pretty confident in my ranking here.
