Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-44 in Oklahoma and Texas

Interstate 44 crosses into Oklahoma and becomes the Will Rogers and the Turner Turnpikes where drivers enjoy a speed limit of 75. Travelers also have the unique experience of driving under a McDonald's on the turnpike. I-44 joins the cities of Miami, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Lawton and the Texas city of Wichita Falls. Attractions that are near this road include the Wichita Mountains and the Grand Lake o' the Cherokees. As mentioned in the post for I-40, the Oklahoma City National Memorial honoring the victims of the federal building bombing is located in Oklahoma City. One treat about this area is that gas prices are really good here, so fill up the tank!

Please share with other drivers your experiences as to which exits are best for single drivers 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.
