Interstate 90 travels for 73 miles in Idaho before it completes its journey in the state of Washington.  I-90  joins the cities of Mullan, Kellogg, Couer d'Alene and Post Falls in Idaho. Along the 297 miles of Interstate 90 in Washington are the cities of Opportunity, Spokane, Ellensburg, Issaquah and Seattle. Attractions along this highway in Idaho include the Bitteroot Range, Fourth of July Canyon, Couer d'Alene Lake, Silver Mountain, Hot Springs, Thompson Falls and Lake Pend Oreille.

Washington's points of interest are the Spokane River, Potholes Reservoir, Mount Spokane State Park, Grand Coulee Dam, Dry Falls, Moses Lake Dunes, Green River Gorge, Columbia River, the Cascade Range, Mount Rainier National Park, Wenatchee Mountains, Snoqualmie Pass, Puget Sound, Mercer Island and Lake Washington. To the west of the end of this interstate are the Olympic Mountains, Olympic National Park and the Pacific Ocean.

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.
