I-90 through South Dakota.

I-70 through Kansas, although it's a tad better than I-80 through Nebraska.

HWY 278 through the upper portion of TX-suicidal!!

No houses, no windmills- except for one town (Dublin) no signs of life for 170 miles! Any you know of?

I-75 between Lake City, FL and Macon, GA is pretty boring mostly just cotton farms and VERY flat land....you pass through some towns (Valdosta, Tifton) but still very boring.

I-16 is pretty damn boring now that I think about it....driven thru there a bunch and mostly just southern pine forests on the side of the road for the most part.

I-95 through NC and southern VA is pretty suicidal lol.

I-65 between Indy and Gary, IN is boring also.

I-55 between STL and Chicago is also boring

Pretty much every interstate will have boring stretches.....you just gotta be patient and wait it out lol

I-64 between Evansville and St. Louis. Except for the oasis of Mt. Vernon, miles and miles and miles and miles of nothing. I am not a national traveler like many people, but I have literally never seen so much flat nothing.

I-10 between San Antonio and Van Horn TX and then into Mexico. It is boring, bland, brown, dead, flat, and windy. You couldn't pay me to take that route again.

I've never been overly fond of I-80 from Laramie, WY to the Utah line.

Not too keen on I-49 from Shreveport to Lafayette, LA either. Except for Alexandria, it's like driving through a green tunnel.

All of my life,whenever possible,have avoided interstates when traveling,much prefering state and secondary roads.However,often this is neither possible or practical.Living in SoCal and often having to head north,have come to detest the I-5.400 miles of blah between LA and Sacramento before things get a little better.Besides nothing to see,half the vehicles,including many trucks,are doing 80-90 mph and seem intent on trying to kill you.
