Interstate 40 travels across the entire width of Tennessee. This highway, which enters the state near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, joins the cities of Knoxville, Nashville and Memphis. The area is rich with historical attractions from the Civil War and also places of interest in the history of country and blue grass music. North of I-40 is the beautiful Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area.

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.
