Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-68 In Maryland & West Virginia

I was unfamiliar with Interstate 68 until six months ago. This highway, measuring 112.6 miles, is a beautiful interstate and a great alternative to driving the Pennsylvania Turnpike. I-68, which provides scenic views of the Savage River State Forest and Green Ridge State Forest in Maryland,  joins Cumberland and Frostburg in Maryland with Morgantown in West Virginia. In addition to the amazing forests and mountains along I-68 is the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park.

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.
