Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-35 in Iowa

Red Rock Dam and Lake, also known as Red Rock ...
Red Rock Dam and Lake, also known as Red Rock Reservoir, on the Des Moines River in Marion County, Iowa. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers constructed the dam in 1969 for flood control on the Des Moines River. The dam is located approximately 36 miles (58 km) east-southeast of the city of Des Moines, Iowa. County highway T15 crosses the dam. View is to the north. Photograph color-corrected by contributor.

Interstate 35 runs down the middle of Iowa for the entire length of the state. This highway intersects       I-80 in the state capital of Des Moines. Attractions near this interstate include Pilot Knob, Dolliver Memorial State Park, Lake Red Rock and Lake Rathbun. Also located east of Interstate 35 is a treat for those interested in hot air balloons. In Indianola is the National Balloon Museum and U.S. Ballooning Hall of Fame.  (That is for you, Sue!!)

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 to 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
