Truck stops are a great place for truck drivers to refuel and get some rest before their next big haul. While most truck stops have the basics you need, many offer a little something extra – like a magnificent backdrop of the Nevada desert or other gorgeous geographical scenery.
There are plenty of options for truckers who simply need a place to stay and eat when they stop for gas, but some are absolute must-sees in our books. Let’s start with Nevada, home of Truline HQ.
