Interstate 26 travels through the states of Tennessee and North Carolina before it ends its journey in South Carolina. This interstate has an even number even though it runs on a diagonal through these states from north to south. I-26 connects the cities of Kingsport, Johnson City and Erwin in Tennessee with Asheville and Hendersonville in North Carolina. This highway intersects I-81 in Tennessee and I-40 in North Carolina. Attractions along the way include the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Walnut Mountains and the Bald Mountains, the Peter Guice Memorial Bridge (highest in North Carolina) and the Eastern Continental Divide.

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.
