Bonus List

U.S. CITIES FURTHEST FROM ANY INTERSTATE HIGHWAY (WITH AT LEAST 20,000 PEOPLE)

Most cities in the United States are within 50 miles (usually much less) of an Interstate Highway. Here are a few which are much further (in two cases, you can't even reach an Interstate Highway by road). All of these are in some perimeter region of the United States, usually a coastal area. Note that some of Alaska's highways are technically considered Interstates but are not signed that way (and for the most part are not "freeways"), so they are not considered as such here. Freeways without the Interstate Highway designation (like state highways) are not included either.
