Interstate 70 spends a few minutes in West Virginia before entering the state of Ohio, which is the land of interstates with numbers in the seventies. This highway links Wheeling, West Virginia, with the Ohio cities of Cambridge, Zanesville, Columbus, Springfield and Dayton which is just south of I-70. Attractions include Berkley Springs and the Ohio River. Dresden, the mecca for Longaberger Basket fans, is north of Zanesville. I usually get gas around the Dayton area before heading west. Avoiding Columbus at rush hour is a good idea. Even the bypass is crowded.

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.
