Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-81 in Pennsylvania & Maryland

Interstate 81 travels south in Pennsylvania until it reaches Scranton where the highway then curves to the southwest. I-81 joins the cities of Hallstead, Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Harrisburg and York with the Maryland city of Hagerstown. Attractions near this highway include the Susquehanna River, the Poconos, Hickory Run State Park, the Appalachian Trail, Gettysburg National Military Park, Antietam National Battlefield, Hickory Run State Park, Eisenhower National Historical Site, Catoctin Mountain Park, Endless Mountains and the Appalachian 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.
