Interstate 84 has two main sections. The eastern part of the United States is home to an I-84 segment which is 232 miles long and travels through four states. This interstate links the Massachusetts city of Sturbridge with the Connecticut cities of Vernon, Manchester, Danbury, Hartford, East HartfordPlantsville and Waterbury. I-84 continues into New York joining Lake Carmel, Newburgh and Middletown before ending just east of Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Attractions near this highway include Streeter Point Recreation Area, Lake Candlewood, the Hudson River Valley, Purgatory Chasm State Reservation, Lake Minnewaska, the Poconos, Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and Kent Falls.

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.
