For all of its 156 miles in Indiana and almost all of its 124 miles in Illinois, Interstate 90 is a toll road. However, during the time it travels through Chicago, I-90 is toll-free. This interstate is known by many other names. The Indiana Toll is its other name in Indiana and in Illinois I-90 is known as Jane Addams Memorial Tollway, Kennedy Expressway, Dan Ryan Expressway or Chicago Skyway. The Indiana cities of Elkhart, South Bend and Gary are joined to the Illinois cities of Chicago and Rockford by this highway. I-90 and I-80 travel together across most of Indiana. In Illinois this interstate joins I-94 for a while before joining I-39.

Attractions near I-90 include Pokagon State Park, Crooked Lake, Door Prairie Auto Museum, Lake Michigan, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and the casinos in East Chicago. The nearby Illinois attractions are Lake Calumet, Fox River, Rock Cut State Park and Lake Michigan.

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.
