Interstate 85 travels across the northwest corner of South Carolina and into Georgia. I-85 to Atlanta will be covered by this post. This interstate connects the cities of Gaffney, Spartansburg, Greenville and Anderson in South Carolina with Lavonia, Commerce and Atlanta in Georgia. Attractions near this highway include Cowpens National Battlefield, Kings Mountain National Military Park, Sadlers Creek State Recreation Area, Hartwell Lake, Lake Harding, Lake Sidney Lanier, Stone Mountain and Catawba Lake.

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.
