Technically, Interstate 96 is called an Intrastate because it is entirely in one state. I-96 travels for 192 miles and links the cities of Detroit, Brighton, Lansing, Grand Rapids, Muskegon and Norton Shores. Attractions near this highway include Lake St. Clair, Lake Erie, Spring Lake, Lake Michigan, Highland Recreation Area, Lake HuronWaterloo Recreation Area, High-Rollway Overlook and Muskegon State  Park. To the north of this interstate is Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

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.
