Interstate 88 has two sections and each section is considered an intrastate because it runs within one state. One part is in the state of New York and the other is in Illinois. I-88 in New York is 117 miles long and links I-81 and I-90. Schenectady, Oneonta and Binghamton are cities joined by this highway. Nearby attractions include the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum, the Secret Caverns, the National Soccer Hall of Fame and the Adirondack Mountains.

The other part of Interstate 88 is also an intrastate of 141 miles in Illinois. This highway joins Hillside, North Aurora and the Quad Cities. Part of I-88 is the Ronald Reagan Memorial Tollway. Lake Michigan, the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, the Ronald Reagan  Boyhood Home, the John Deere Historical Site, Ronald Reagan Birthplace, Lincoln Monument and Mississippi Palisades are located near this highway.

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.
