Interstate 80 begins its long journey of 2,899 miles across the United States in New Jersey. I-80, which is the second longest interstate, travels through the New Jersey cities of Fort Lee, Rockaway and Paterson, and the Pennsylvania cities of Stroudsburg, Bloomburg, Clearfield, DuBois, Clarion, and Grove City.

The highway travels through the Appalachian Mountains, so numerous ski lodges, lake activities and hiking trails are available. Attractions include Passaic Falls, the Hudson River, George Washington Bridge, Palisades International Park, Lambert Castle, Nescopeck State Park, Shenango Lake, the Poconos, Delaware Water Gap National Recreation area, the Appalachian Trail, Penn's Cave and the Hudson Valley.

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.
