World's Best Truck Stops

by Tom Jones

The following information was gleaned from a Travel channel feature on "the world's best truck stops". A fascinating program that had one wanting to be a trucker (or an RVer stopping over).

Here's their top 10, but please remember, I've never visited any of these truck stops, and none of the comments/observations are mine.
  • Autohof Strohofer , Geisynd, Germany - biggest truck stop in Europe, in-the-buff spa, drive through.
  • Lodi Travel Center , Lodi, OH - Starbucks, marble showers and internet hookups.
  • Highlands Petro , Racine, WI - has a full time chiropractor who, in addition to taking care of neck and back pains, is qualified to perform the DOT required physicals.
  • Derrick Travel Plaza , Salisbury - has a 'trucker's chapel'.
  • Jubatz Travel Plaza , Portland, OR - has a hotel with suites, cinema, and formal upscale dining. Claimed to be the e classiest.
  • Rip Griffin Travel Center , San Antonio, TX - they pick you up from your rig in a limo.
  • Ayer Keroh , Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - the most exotic.
  • Alamo Travel Center , Sparks, NV. All the gambling you could ask for.
  • Iowa 80 - claims to be the biggest.
  • South of The Border, on I95 at the NC/SC border.
