Description: Also known as the World’s Largest Pit Stop!

Well, after not having the internet for about a week, due to some issues with the internet lines, I am back to reliving some memories and writing this blog.

It was a coooolllddddd November day when my friends and I decided to make a trip up to Iowa for a fun day of freezing, exploring and experiencing the grip of winter. Our first stop was the WORLD’S LARGEST TRUCK STOP!

Now I have heard from quite a few on how massive it was. Well, it is truly worth of the title of WORLD’S LARGEST. The place is more than a truck stop. I think it has a small city’s worth of amenities inside. Barber, dentist, laundromat, food, truck parts, truck service, souvenir shop, bathrooms, church… It literally has it all. There is even a nearby museum. We didn’t get to check it out, as we were on our way to the Davenport Skybridge, Rhythm City Casino and Isle of Capri Casino.

Overall, it was a pretty cool place to see. We spent about an hour there, just amazed at all the things it housed. If you are in the area, it’s worth a stop to check it out. Maybe even go a bit out of the way to check it out. It’s not every day that you get to see one of the WORLD’S LARGEST things!
