Driving across country is a great way to see everything that America has to offer. If you find yourself crossing state borders over and over again, you should consider checking out these road trip attractions for cross-country travelers.
When you need to stop for a bite to eat, why not go big? The Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo lives up to the adage that “everything’s bigger in Texas.” It has a 72-ounce steak challenge and offers delicious meals. The gift shop is also a great place to visit, and it even has a motel for you to sleep in.
For some natural beauty, stop in Arizona at the Petrified Forest National Park. This stunning locale is known for having large deposits of petrified wood that date back to the Triassic period. It offers hiking, horseback riding, and more when you need to get out of your truck cab and stretch your legs.
It might seem like you’ve seen every truck stop in the country, but there are few that will make as big of an impression as Iowa 80. Considered the world’s largest truck stop, this attraction has sold over 3 million cups of coffee since it opened more than 50 years ago. It has a movie theater, dentist, barber, chiropractor, a wide range of restaurants, a laundromat, library, and more. It even has a “Dogomat” if you have a pup driving with you — and a super-truck showroom.
Before you hit up all of these road trip attractions, you might want to get your truck serviced so it doesn’t break down on the road. Call us at Grande Truck Center if you need to schedule a service appointment before your next cross-country trip or if it’s time to upgrade to a newer truck model.
