On our second cross-country road trip of 2019, we headed north to I-80. Our first major stop of the trip was the world-famous Iowa 80 Truckstop - The World's Largest Truckstop.

On the eastern edge of Iowa, not far from the Mississippi River is a place like no other in the world. The Iowa 80 Truckstop, now the World’s Largest Truckstop, established its home here in 1964 and is now in itself a home away from home to countless drivers and a destination for travelers as well. Some say Iowa 80 Truckstop is like a small city, others have likened it to a Trucker’s Disneyland, all agree it is a place not to be missed.

Iowa 80 Truckstop features eight restaurants that serve 1 million cups of coffee and 90 tons of meat annually. There are twenty-four private showers and restrooms, a game room, and a Driver's Den Lounge. The lounge provides leather chairs and a fireplace for relaxing. Iowa 80 also features a business center with fax machines, logbooks & trip report forms and working stations. A 60-seat movie theater and an on-site barbershop are available. The most unexpected facilities, though, may be the dentist's office and the chiropractic clinic.
