For half of its journey Interstate 84 runs parallel to the southern banks of the Columbia River in Oregon. I-84 joins the cities of Hood River, The Dalles, Hermiston, Pendleton, La Grande, Baker City and Ontario. Attractions near this interstate include the Columbia River, Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Oregon Trail Interpretative Center, Snake River and the Ontario State Recreation Site.

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.
