Though they may not be the most boring drives compared to some of the others on here, has anyone else noticed how monotonous it can be to drive to Orlando/Disney World and Universal on the major highways there? Coming from South Florida, the Florida Turnpike is a bore and a chore with some of the longest distances ever between exits. In the other direction, reaching down the northern side of the turnpike while going down I-75 from Atlanta and points beyond or coming west from I-10 feels like an eternity of mostly small towns spread out few and far between. And then there's I-95, which shifts from being overcrowded and chaotic north of Richmond, Virginia to mundane, flat, swampy and mind-rotting for the next 600 miles or so until you reach Jacksonville, Florida. It may be the Happiest Place on Earth, but driving there from most major highways is a guarantee for having a lousy time.

I like taking the SW Chief Amtrak train across Kansas because it does it at night — sleeping through Kansas is more tolerable than driving.

Illinois is one of the flattest, if not the flattest, states in the country.

But there are at least cities and people and traffic.

My driving experiences are limited but I found 81 going through VA and 10 going through Western TX to be miserable. It was nice for about 15 minutes but the same thing for eons after that......

It would be a tie for me with I-5 in California, and I-10 in Texas both are terrible!!! I hate driving to NorCal period, if the drive wasn't so dreadful I'd probably go more often.

I-90 across New York state is unfathomably dull....

I voted for I-5 between Santa Clarita and Stockton because it's the only one I've actually driven.

If I could add one that I think is incredibly boring and seemingly endless, it's I-15 between Los Angeles and Las Vegas - ESPECIALLY if there's traffic.

The stretch from Barstow to Las Vegas is just so...ugh.

Of course, interstate driving is usually the most boring and mind-numbing route to anywhere. Something like purgatory or waiting at the DMV.
