Hi All,

Searched the forum and didn't see anything so I am starting a new thread.

My parents are going to be visiting for Florida and I need to know what is at the intersection of 95 and 40, so I can meet them and lead them back to my house. Are there any safe places right off the interstate (ie McDonalds, Burger King, etc) where I can meet them?

Thanks in advance!

Default Benson

If you head south on Route 50 once you exit from 95, there is a fast food place on the left. I don't know if it safe or not at night but perhaps you can check with the local police. If you are there during the day, I can't imagine that it is something to really be concerned about. (If you are heading north on 95, the exit for 50 is right before the exit for I-40). Enjoy your visit!

The actual intersection (Exit 81) is nothug but a giant exit (no stores or anything. Your best bet is to meet them at Exit 79 (Hwy 50 exit). If they are coming from FL, they would be heading north on 95. If they exit and take a left over the bridge, there is a gas station, KFC and a Burger King right on the left.

I'd agree with the actual Benson exit off being the best place to meet them. The McDonalds (with gas pumps in front) and the Burger King (again with gas pumps in the front) are going to be the easiest to get in/out of and have the most lighting in the parking lots.

Just North of the junction (half a dozen exits or less) is the outlets. Can't remember the exit number. Will have to drive a tad North and backtrack.

There are gas stations and fast food restaurants right there. They can shop and stretch their legs. Also a full service restaurant.

The Smithfield outlets are way up at Exit 95. Depending on where the OP lives, this could be closer to his/her home or way out of the way.

Well another option would be to meet at the rest stop on I-40. It's just west on I-40 after exiting off I-95.
