Interstate 78, which begins its journey of 144 miles at Canal Street in New York City, is the road that travels through the Holland Tunnel. Although it is a short interstate, I-78 handles heavy traffic. In New Jersey it links the cities of Jersey City, Newark and Union with the Pennsylvania city of Allentown before joining Interstate 81 just east of Harrisburg. Activities available in the New York City area include Broadway plays, the National September 11 Memorial  & Museum, the Empire State Building, Chinatown, Central Park and Times Square. Other attractions near this interstate include the Spruce Run State Recreation area, Round Valley State Recreation area, Ellis Island National Monument, Statue of Liberty National Monument, the Holland Tunnel, the Hudson River and the Lost River Caverns.

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.
