Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-70 in Indiana & Illinois

Interstate 70 continues west through the farmlands of Indiana and Illinois. This highway connects the cities of Richmond, Indianapolis and Terre Haute in Indiana with Effingham and Vandalia in Illinois. I always stop for gas at Exit 162 where I-70 joins with I-57 for a while. Best bets for lodging are in the large cities, so plan accordingly. Attractions include the Indianapolis Speedway, the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame, the Lieber State Recreation Area and Brookville Lake in Indiana and the Lincoln Log Cabin State Historical Site, Lincoln Trail State Park and Carlyle Lake in 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.
