Traveling I-95

For the 42,500,000 people who drive to Florida every year down Interstate 95, Stan Posner and Sandra Phillips-Posner want to make the drive stress-free. To this end, they have diligently charted the 552 exits on I-95 all the way from Boston to Miami. They checked out food options, motels, radar traps, radio stations, 24-hour mechanics, ATM machines, golf courses and places to shop, while also amassing amazing stories to keep travelers entertained.

All this is conveniently found in the 4th edition of the award-winning Drive I-95: Exit by Exit Info, Maps, History and Triviahttp://www.drivei95.com ). This book gives travelers reasons to make some pit stops in the twelve states along this route where they can try out local food and discover fun stopping places to break up the drive. This is the first edition to include Florida (which occupies 30 all-new pages).
