Interstate 94 travels 46 miles in Indiana and 77 miles in Illinois. In Indiana Interstate 94 runs north of I-80/I-90 and south of Lake Michigan parallel to the coast. The cities of Michigan City, Portage and Gary are joined by this highway before it joins I-90 to pass through Chicago. This interstate, which links Munster, Chicago and Highland Park in Illinois, is known by a variety of names. Bishop Ford Memorial Freeway, Dan Ryan Expressway, Kennedy Expressway, Tri-State Tollway, Edens Expressway, and Kingery Expressway are other names used for I-94.

Attractions near this highway include Lake Michigan, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Buffington Harbor, Lake Calumet, William W. Powers State Recreation Area, Museum of Science and Industry, Navy Pier, Skokie Lagoons and the National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum.

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.
