Default Top 16 longest gaps between Interstate exits

Remember family trips when you were waiting in the back seat for mom or dad to finally pull off the Interstate for the night (and hoping for a motel with a pool).Well, here are the stretches of Interstate and other limited-access highways in the U.S. with the longest gaps between exits from the road.

Surprisingly the list is NOT dominated by places like remote corners of the Nevada desert.

In fact, Florida -- not Nevada or California -- has five of the top 16. And Number One is Florida state route 91, the Florida Turnpike, which bills itself as "The Less Stressway." It's also the only non-Interstate route among the limited-access highways on the list.

Pennsylvania is second with three. And toll roads dominate the list.
According to TomTom, the portable GPS navigation system maker, here are the 16 longest distances between freeway exits in the USA:
(Note: Asterisk indicates exit gap exists in both directions)
1. Florida 91 (Fla. Turnpike), Exit 193 to Exit 242: 48.9 miles. *
2. Florida 91, Exit 193 to Exit 152: 40.5 miles. *
3. I-80 in Utah, Exit 4 to Exit 41: 37.4 miles. *\
4. I-70 East in Pennsylvania, Exit 110 to Exit 146: 35.5 miles.
5. I-75 in Florida, Exit 80 to Exit 49: 30.6 miles. *
6. I-335 in Kansas, Exit 147 to Exit 177: 30.3 miles. *
7. I-90 in Massachusetts, Exit 3 to Exit 2: 29.9 miles. *
8. I-44 West in Oklahoma, Exit 283 to Exit 255: 28.4 miles.
9. I-40 in California, Exit 78 to Exit 50: 28.4 miles. *
10. I-44 East in Oklahoma, Exit 53 to Exit 80: 27.6 miles.
11. I-70 West in Pennsylvania, Exit 146 to Brotherton Rd. Exit: 27.3 miles.
12. I-75 North in Florida, Exit 23 to Exit 49: 26.2 miles.
13. I-70 West in Colorado, Exit 75 to Exit 49: 26 miles.
I-75 South in Florida Exit 49 to Exit 23: 25.7 miles.
15. I-76 in Pennsylvania, Exit 226 to Exit 201: 25 miles. *
I-80 in Indiana, Exit 144 to Exit 121: 23.8 miles. *

Yeah, that's a long one. That whole set of exits between 4 and the border is like that.

All the Pennsylvania ones are on the PA Turnpike. I grew up in PA, and remember many trips riding in the back seat while dad drove the turnpike. It seemed to take forever to get from one exit to the next. There isn't much going on in central PA.

For the most part the exits on PA-I-76 are spaced out anyway.

There is plenty going on in central PA and in FL. Turnpikes just don't have tons of exits since they cost more money. There is way less out west, but they don't have toll roads everywhere so they can put in exits willy nilly.

I don't get what the big deal is, all of those listed are under an hour's drive. Granted I'm guessing driving with kids can make bathroom stops unpredictable but in terms of needing fuel or whatever, anyone who runs out of gas in between any of those exits is an idiot. I can't speak for the others but in the case of the Mass Pike one, I am quite sure there is a rest area/service stop between those exits anyhow.

I've driven all those gaps in FL.

The two on I-75 (Alligator Alley) are because you are crossing the everglades.

Exit 101 is the last exit before you get on the Alley, and exit 80 goes north and south to farmlands/migrant towns.... Exit 43 is to the Indian Reservation with a single gas station on it. and Exit 23 is the first real exit on a real road (SR 27) that goes north and south through the everglades some more but into Sugar Cane fields etc. . . . It's a huge gap because you've got an interstate through a protected area...

And for the turnpike, That road goes N-S through the boonies once you get past mile 100... and you end up in Orlando way up in the mid 200's.
