Interstate 71 begins its journey south from the city of Cleveland where it connects with I-90. This highway joins Cleveland with Columbus and Cincinnati in Ohio and with Louisville, Kentucky. For many drivers who frequently travel I-71 between Cleveland and Columbus, Exit 173 is a popular place to stop.  Also Exit 131 is a convenient place to get gas before entering the Columbus area. Attractions near this interstate include the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, COSI Columbus, Caesar Creek State Park, Fort Ancient State Memorial and the Ohio River. In Kentucky Louisville is home to Churchill Downs and the Belle of Louisville.

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.
