Interstate 80 travels across the lower half of Nebraska connecting the cities of Omaha, Papillion, Lincoln, Grand Island, Lexington, North Platte, Ogallala, Sidney and Kimball. This is the only major interstate in Nebraska. The auxiliary interstates of I-480 and I-680 surround Omaha. Attractions near this highway include the casinos on the Missouri River, the Strategic Air & Space Museum, Arbor Lodge State Park, Lake McConaugh, Medicine Creek Reservoir and the numerous state recreation areas along the Platte River.

In Wyoming I-80 connects Pine Bluffs, Cheyenne, Laramie, Rawlins, Rock Springs, Green River and Evanston. Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area and Como Bluff Dinosaur Graveyard are located near this highway. North of Interstate 80 in Wyoming is Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park and the Snowy Range Pass.

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.
