Interstate 40 begins its journey across the United States in Wilmington, North Carolina. It travels northwest to Raleigh and Durham and then continues west through Greensboro, Winston-Salem and Asheville. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Chimney Rock are located near I-40. While beaches such as Carolina Beach and Wrightsville Beach are near the beginning of this interstate, travelers should consider taking the time to visit one of the best places on earth. The Outer Banks are home to some of the most beautiful beaches on the East Coast. It is a place of exceptional beauty and the site of the Cape Hatteras lighthouse.

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.
