Interstate 76  begins its journey in New Jersey and travels  across the state of Pennsylvania from the eastern border to the western border. This interstate has other names such as the Schuylkill Expressway and the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The turnpike is 360 miles long and has a toll of about $40 for the length. (This cost is less if drivers use an E-Z Pass.)  I-76, which links the cities of Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Pittsburg, travels through the Appalachian Mountains. Driving this interstate can be a challenge especially in the winter. Attractions near this highway include the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross House, Flight 93 National Memorial Site, the Appalachian Trail, Laurel Caverns, Ohiopyle Falls and the Susquehanna 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.
