Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-73 & I-74 in North Carolina

Interstate 73 and Interstate 74 are short highways in North Carolina and both are part of future extentions of the Interstate Highway System. I-73 is just over 42 miles with one section running south of Candor to north of Asheboro, and the other short section is near Greensboro. I-74 has several short sections. The first joins I-77 at the Virginia state line and travels a scenic path to US 52 near Mount Airy. Nearby attractions include Fancy Gap and Pilot Mountain. The next section is south from I-40 by Asheboro and this segment travels the same path as I-73. Laurinburg to Lumberton is the last part of this interstate.

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.
