Interstate 86 has an eastern section and a western section. In the east I-86 has a journey of 207 miles through Pennsylvania and New York. This interstate intersects I-90 just east of Erie and travels through Pennsylvania for seven miles. In the state of New York, I-86 joins Elmira, Bath, Hornell, Olean, Salamanca and Jamestown. Corning Museum of Glass, Allegany State Park, Rock City Park, Lake Chautauqua, Lake Erie, Orchard Beach and Presque Isle are some of the attractions located near the eastern section of I-86.

Another small section of Interstate 86 is located in Idaho. This 63 mile section joins Pocatello, American Falls and Declo. Many attractions are located near this short interstate. They include Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve, City of Rocks National Reserve, Minidoka Internment National Monument, Lake Walcott State Park and the Crystal Ice Caves.

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.
