The Next Exit

The Most Complete Guide of What’s Available at Every Interstate Highway Exit From Coast to Coast

The Next Exit Cover“Dry ice two miles south of exit.” “Great BBQ here!” Our worn 2005 edition of The Next Exit is replete with so many personal notes that my travel companions and I have been unable to bring ourselves to upgrade to the latest edition. Whether you need a listing of motels along a specific interstate or crave a coffee and free wifi at the next Panera Bread, you’ll find the information you need in this indispensable travel reference. Being a terrier of mature years, my eyes aren’t what they used to be; so I confess that reading the detailed listings can be a bit of a strain at times – but the font size is certainly easier than your typical phonebook. Of course, if you follow the advice in my travel book and get off the main highways (see quote below), this book won’t be much help as it “only” covers every mile of interstate highway in the U.S. Then again, the point of exploring state routes and local roads is not knowing what’s over the next hill, right?

Tip #54 from my road-trip guide Tube-Sock Tricks: Get off the main highways and start exploring. The real adventures aren’t on the interstates!
