Interstate 74 travels across the upper half of Illinois and ends its journey in Iowa. I-74 links the cities of Danville, Champaign, Urbana, Bloomington, Normal, Peoria, and Galesburg before it turns north to join to the Quad cities of Moline, Davenport, Rock IslandBettendorf and East Moline. Attractions near this highway include the Octave Chanute Aerospace Museum, Wheels 'O Time Museum, the Wyatt Earp Birthplace, William M. Staerkel Planetarium, the John Deere Pavilion and the Mississippi River.

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.
