In search of America's best truck stops

June 5, 2024
We're trying to find the best truck stops in America, so fill out this quick survey and let us know your thoughts. You might also win a case of BullSnot spray and a year-long subscription to the Autio road trip app!

One of the best parts of summer is hitting the open road and going someplace new, preferably with the windows down and music up. An obligatory part of this quintessential American experience is hitting the truck stops along the way, from the folksy mom-and-pop stops bursting with charm and local flavor to the eclectic highway hideaways where the aesthetic is stuck somewhere between "The Wizard of Oz" and "The Silence of the Lambs." And then there are the mega-stops like the Iowa 80 Truckstop, which can accomodate 900 trucks.

There's an endless amount of all these types of truck stops and more out there, and we want to highlight the "can't miss" spots—from the most scenic to the weirdest, and of course, where truckers can receive the best service. And we need the trucking industry’s help in figuring out who to feature this summer.

Just fill out this quick survey and let us know which truck stop is most memorable to you. They should provide some level of maintenance and be accessible to truckers and other travelers just passing by.

And as thanks for helping us out, we’re going to send five random respondents (must provide name and email) a little summer road trip care package, comprising:

We appreciate your participation and will feature the top truck stops as chosen by readers the week of July 4th.
