Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-66 in Virginia

Interstate 66, which is just over 76 miles long, begins in the District of Columbia and ends at Interstate 81 in Virginia. This is Interstate 66, not the famous Route 66 which is further west. This highway joins Washington, D.C. with Falls Church and Front Royal. Shenandoah National Park, the Skyline Caverns, the Manassas National Battlefield Park, the National Firearms Museum and Arlington National Cemetery with the Tomb of the Unknowns are connected by this interstate. Motorists should be aware that traffic can be a nightmare during rush hour on this Interstate 66.

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.
