Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-40 in Arkansas

The bridge was opened in 1973 and carries six lanes of Interstate-40 across the river. View is from the Arkansas side to the east-southeast across the river to Memphis. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
After crossing the Mississippi River from Memphis, Interstate 40 continues its journey west into Arkansas. I-40 travels through the middle of the state linking the cities of West Memphis, Forest City, Little Rock and Fort Smith. Along this highway are many beautiful state parks including Petit Jean State Park, Devil's Den State Park and Mount Nebo State Park. Interstate 40 also passes through the Ozarks with the Boston Mountains located to the north with the White Rock Wildlife Management 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.
