I had the opportunity to drive on Interstate 79 this fall and it is a beautiful highway. I-79 begins its journey south from its juncture with I-90 outside Erie, Pennsylvania. It joins that city with Meadville, Grove City, Pittsburgh and Morrisville  and the West Virginia cities of Weston,
Morgantown, Clarksburg and Charleston. Just outside Charleston, I-79 joins I-77. Attractions located near this interstate include Lake Erie, Presque Isle, Perry Monument, Pymatuning Reservoir, Lake Arthur, the Ohio River, Stonewall Jackson State Park, Sutton Lake and the Allegheny Mountains.

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.
