Interstate 64 leaves Louisville and runs west along the southern sections of Indiana and Illinois before ending its journey in East St. Louis. I-64 connects the cities of New Albany, Warrenton and Griffin in Indiana with Grayville, Mt. Vernon and O'Fallon in Illinois before crossing the Popular Street Bridge into Missouri. In 2009 I-64 was completed to I-70 in Missouri. Attractions near this highway include the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial and the Hoosier National Forest in Indiana and the World's Largest Catsup Bottle in Collinsville, Illinois.

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.
