Interstate 70 is one highway that I can say I have traveled every mile in both directions. I-70, which begins outside Baltimore just east of its juncture with I-695, travels through beautiful forests and mountainous areas. Frederick and Hagerstown are linked to Baltimore by this interstate.

At Hancock, Interstate 70 turns north and enters Pennsylvania. At Breezewood it merges with I-76 as part of the Pennsylvania Turnpike though Somerset until Exit 75 where it leaves the turnpike and continues its journey west south of Pittsburgh and through Washington. Attractions near this interstate include the Laurel Caverns, Ohiopyle Falls and the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, which is open, but still under construction.

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.
