I-81/78 Allentown, PA to Knoxville, TN. - Mountain range looks nice at first but becomes boring after a while of seeing the same scenery after driving for so long.
I-30/40 through Arkansas: I got bored, the state doesn't offer much to me and the drive gets even more boring with the landscape on I-40 to Memphis makes me want to hurry and get to Tennessee.
I-35 through from Iowa to Kansas City: Just plains and rolling hills. Des Moines didn't offer much to me and made me want to hurry and get to KC.

I95 through GA and the Carolinas. Literally nothing. Just the interstate divided by a line of trees.

It's this: https://www.google.com/maps/@32.3759...7i13312!8i6656

For pretty much the entire stretch...

I-75 between North Florida and the Atlanta area.

I-10 from Jacksonville to Pensacola; though east of Tallahassee isn't as bad as west of Tallahassee.

I-57 from Champaign to Chicago sucks. Truly one of the worst drives there is. Flat and boring with no trees and nonstop construction. South of Champaign also sucks until you get to the southern Illinois hills but even that’s a long way out.

Yeah I voted for I-70 originally. I kind of want to change it to I-57. Something about that drive through rural Illinois seems much more boring than Kansas. At least I-70 has some rolling hills and that open wild west prairie feel. I-57 is just pancake flat boring farm land everywhere.

Drive between Salina and Denver on I-70, and then get back to me. Having done both routes numerous times, US-287 is far more interesting.

If not for Richmond, it would be just like that until you get to NOVA in Virginia as well. But yeah, that stretch in the Carolinas and Georgia is pretty dull. But still, I'll take it over I-10 in the Florida Panhandle.

Really the entire length of the entire interstate, and compounding the boring nature of the landscape is the level of stress. If you combine nothing to look at besides 18 wheelers and other cars, that's the worst combination that there is.

TLDR, I'd add the Long Island Expressway. Otherwise known as "The world's longest parking lot."
