Interstate 72 in Illinois has a length of 179 miles and cuts across the middle of the state. This highway joins Springfield, Decatur, Champaign and Urbana with Hannibal, Missouri. The attractions near I-72 include the Mississippi River, the William M. Staerkel Planetarium, the Children's Museum of Illinois, Lincoln Tomb State Historical Site, Lincoln Presidential Library and the Lincoln Home.

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.
