Interstate 35 enters the state of Texas at the Oklahoma border and continues south through the state until it reaches the Mexican border. When it enters the Dallas/Fort Worth area, I-35 splits into two roads: I-35E and I-35W. The two sides join together again north of Waco and the highway continues through Austin. Since this interstate is so long, this post will end at Exit 217. Attractions for Dallas and Fort Worth are mentioned in the I-20 posting. Places of interest near Austin include Longhorn Cavern, Enchanted Rock, Pedernales Falls State Park, the Highland Lakes Chain and the Lyndon B. Johnson Library and Museum.

Please share with other drivers your experiences as to which exits are best for single travelers or anyone for that matter. Reasons for the 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.
