Interstate 75 in Georgia travels 355 miles connecting the cities of Dalton, Marietta, Atlanta, Macon, Cordele, Tifton and Valdosta. Attractions near this interstate include Stone Mountain, the Okefenokee Swamp, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, Atlanta Motor Speedway, Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum, Underground Atlanta and the World of Coca Cola Pavilion. Please take great care in planning when to drive through Atlanta. Rush hour can be a nightmare and the roads around the airport can be extremely congested. That is why I try to go through Atlanta late at night.

To the west of this interstate on Highway 27 (Exit 109) is an amazing side trip to the Providence Canyon State Park, which is located west of Americus and south of Columbus. For those who have not had the experience of visiting Bryce or the Grand Canyon, viewing this park is like seeing the other parks in miniature. The views are breathtaking and well worth the side trip.

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.
