Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-75 in Michigan

Interstate 75, which has a long journey from the border of Canada to Naples, Florida, is the only interstate in northern Michigan. The section north of Detroit is the only section of this entire interstate I have not driven. I know it well in other states. I-75 joins the cities of Saulte Set. Marie, Cheboygan, Bay City, Saginaw, Flint and Detroit. Michigan is well known for its water activities since it touches all of the Great Lakes except Lake Ontario. Attractions include Mackinaw Island and its bridge, Lake Huron, Lake Superior, Lake Michigan,  Lake Erie, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Traverse City and the Henry Ford Museum.

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.
