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.
