Best rest area on i10 in Florida to not get robbed at?


I'm driving to St. Pete/Tampa next week and will be stopping at 1 of the 3 rest areas that are just past Pensacola.

There's mm4 in Pensacola.
mm29 in Milton
and mm61 in Crestview.

Any OTers have any late night napping experience with any of these stops? Which one is the best/safest? im hazy about my limited experience with these areas. TIA.

i think they all have night time security and the rest area sign usually says so. you can probably look that up online somewhere.

'bout 8 years ago, coming back from disney world, FL and FLSt had their graduations and there were no rooms to be had anywhere. wife didn't want to do the rest area thing. i told her that we either take a chance of getting killed at the rest area or I'll kill us on the road. Don't remember the one we stopped at, but there was a cop in the parking lot and everything was ok. That was west of Talahassee by 50 miles or so, as I remember.

Typical OT response is to solve all problems by spending more money. Resting at rest areas is normal. I've driven all over the country and gotten naps at rest areas without any problems. always make sure there's a guard there. if anything, for peace of mind.

Shack up with a trucker and make with the head. Problem solved.

Also, bone up on your gloryhole etiquette. You'll need to make a friend to watch your back on those cold lonely nights.

Serious answer here...

About 43 miles East of Pensacola there is a rest area that is pretty far off the main road, in fact it takes about 3 minutes to get all the way back to the parking area. It is really nice, clean, and quiet. we stopped there on our way to the NC game January.

Stopped there again on the way back to attempt suicide.

There is no scenario where I'd ever stop at a rest area here in California, much less Florida.

Thanks for jogging my memory. I stopped there on the way back from JAX once. I remember it was in the woods and I parked right in front of where the guard was. It's apparently in Ponce De Leon.

As most have said, these rest areas are safe and guarded. I was wiped out driving back from Savannah the day after New Years and stopped for a nap at the one just West of Tallahassee. Of course I had my Glock 32 "on call". All decent folks should travel with a firearm / and stand your ground.

frick, none of them. They all seem like freakin serial killer central. Some have 24 hour security, but I don't think I'd feel safe with some $7 an hour goon watching over the place. Stopping there to take a leak and rest for a bit is one thing. Actually falling into a deep sleep there is not something I'd feel terribly safe doing.
