Interstate 99 is the last of the double-digit interstates although it is really an intrastate. I-99 travels 86 miles in the state of Pennsylvania linking the cities of Bellefonte, State College, Altoona and Bedford. Some of the attractions located near this interstate include the Boal Mansion Museum, Bald Eagle Mountain, Fort Roberdeau, Raystown Lake, the Appalachian Mountains and Penn's Cave. I-99 actually goes against the interstate grid plan because it is located east of I-79, but west of I-81.

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.
