Rye, New Rochelle and New York City are joined by Interstate 95 during its 23 miles in the state of New York. Nearby attractions include the George Washington Bridge, Hudson River, Long Island Sound, the Hall of Fame for Great Americans, Mianus River Gorge, The Cloisters, the Bronx Zoo, the East River and the Hudson Valley.

In New Jersey Interstate 95 connects Fort Lee, Newark, Elizabeth and Twin Rivers with 97 miles of highway. I-95 becomes the New Jersey Turnpike which has east and west sections. Only a few miles of this road do not have a toll. Raritan Bay, Delaware River, Pigeon Swamp State Park, Gateway National Recreation Area, Hudson Valley and Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge are places 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.
