Interstates 17 and 19 are both located in Arizona. Interstate 17 joins the cities of Phoenix and Flagstaff. Well worth a side trip to the west of I-17 is the beautiful city of Sedona. Another attraction is Grand Canyon National Park which is located near Flagstaff. Once again, be careful during rush hour where  I-17 joins I-10 in the area known as The StackInterstate 19 travels from Tucson to the United States/Mexican border. I-19 is the second shortest interstate at 63 miles. The nearby attraction of Saguaro National Park is east of Tucson.

Please share with other drivers your experiences as to which exits are best for single travelers or anyone for that matter. Reasons for your choice may include the safety of the surrounding area, the availability of good hotels and restaurants or proximity to the interstate. Please make sure you give the exit number or a description of the location. For example, when I discuss I-40, I would recommend Exit 145 in Oklahoma City. Many hotels and restaurants were located at this exit and I felt safe in the area. This exit was very convenient for easily continuing west without the hassle of dealing with early morning rush hour traffic.
