Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-59 in Alabama & Georgia

Interstate 59 begins its journey south from its juncture with I-24 in the northwest corner of Georgia. After three exits in Georgia, I-59 joins the cities of Fort Payne, Gadsden, Birmingham and Tuscaloosa in Alabama.  Interstate 59 merges with I-20 from Birmingham to Meridian, Mississippi. The interchange of these two merged interstates with I-65 is the site of many accidents, so use caution. Attractions near this highway include DeSoto State Park, the Cathedral Caverns, the Sequoyah Caverns and the Appalachian Mountains.

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 in Oklahoma, 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.
