Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-70 in Utah

Interstate 70 ends its journey in Utah and what an ending it is. The spectacular scenery along my favorite section of any interstate includes some of the most desolate landscape in the United States. This stretch of I-70 takes me a lot of time to cover because I pull over to take pictures at every opportunity. (I have not driven this section since I got my digital camera.) Travelers should be cautious because services can be few and far between, so keep enough gas in the car. Moab in eastern Utah is a mecca for a variety of outdoor pursuits. This interstate also connects Moab with Green River and joins I-15 in western Utah. Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Capitol Reef are located near this highway.

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.
