Interstate 91 travels on a north-south route of 290 miles through the states of Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut. In Vermont I-90 connects the cities of Derby Line, Orleans, Lyndonville, St. Johnsbury, White River Junction, Springfield and West Battleboro. Attractions near this highway include Lake Memphremagog, Crystal Lake State Park, Connecticut River, Blue Mountain, Wilder Dam, White Rodes, Mount Washington, Quechee Gorge, Haystack Mountain and Vernon Dam.

In Massachusetts I-90 joins Greenfield, Northampton, Holyoke, West Springfield and Springfield. The Quabbin Reservoir, Connecticut River, Volleyball Hall of Fame, Dr. Suess National Memorial and the French King Bridge are located near this interstate.

Before Interstate 90 joins I-95 in Connecticut it links Thompsonville, Windsor Locks, Hartford, Wethersfield and New Haven. The Mark Twain house of Nook Farm, Long Island Sound, New Haven Harbor, West Rock Ridge State Park, Fort Nathan Hale, the Connecticut River and the Atlantic Ocean are points of interest 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.
