The Rivertowns in Westchester County consist of cozy and picturesque towns. It is resplendent with typically 19th-century architecture, stunning views of the river, and thriving centers full of creative and artistic individuals.

Most Extravagant Rest Stops and Gas Stations Across The Globe

These are the best rest stops and gas stations from around the world that will make your stop a paradise instead of just a necessity.

Published

on

When you’re on the road one major source of entertainment is every gas station or rest stop where you decide to take a break. Some rest stops are a lot of fun while others just don’t live up to the excitement you have in your head. Usually, people have very low expectations for rest stops, as they should, they’re just there so you can hit the can, buy a Snapple and hop back on the road.

But some rest stops offer a magical wonderland that you could spend hours in. When you find a good rest stop it’s like you’ve hit gold. Suddenly your long boring road trip seems all worth it, and you haven’t even reached your destination yet.

These are the best rest stops and gas stations from around the world that will make your stop a paradise instead of just a necessity.

POPS, ARCADIA, OKLAHOMA

Pops is pretty easy to see thanks to the 66-foot-tall soda bottle that is in front of the station. At night the bottle even lights up which makes it even easier to see and probably attracts billions of moths. It makes sense that the bottle is 66 feet high considering it is on Route 66. No matter what you’re looking for, you will enjoy your stop at Pops in Arcadia. We recommend hitting the restaurant that has over 700 types of sodas and seltzers. Now that’s refreshing!

ALZU PETROPORT, NEAR MIDDELBURG, SOUTH AFRICA

How about a rest stop with rhinos, ostriches, and buffalos? Does that sound like something you’d be interested in? Well then head to Alzu Petroport which is adjacent to a wildlife preserve. This means after you hit the restrooms and gas up the ride, you can stare in awe of the many animals you can see directly from the rest stop. Now that sounds like a good place to take a break and eat lunch.

TRAIL’S TRAVEL CENTER, ALBERT LEA, MINNESOTA

This seems like a regular gas station from the front, but when you walk in you quickly notice that this place holds laundry, church services, and even a movie theater. So if you’re getting tired of driving, pop in here and catch a flick, or get married. Either activity is totally possible at Trail’s Travel Center. There is also a huge selection of whiskey, the biggest in all of Minnesota right here so if you’re a fan of the brown liquor then Trail’s is for you.

GAZOLINE PETROL, CUNEO, ITALY

Usually, when you take a picture of a rest area it’s because of something horrifying you found inside a toilet bowl. But at the Gazoline Petrol, you will take picture after picture of the building itself because the architecture is simply stunning.

ORIVAL GAS STATION, ORIVAL, BELGIUM

This is considered one of the world’s most beautiful gas station and it is easy to see why. There are beautifully landscaped parks as well as expertly curated art galleries. Usually, the only art you see at rest stops lies on mud flaps but not at Orival Gas Station. You won’t want to just stop at Orival, you’ll want to stay there and never ever leave.

The Best Holiday Gifts For The Traveling Man

If you’re having trouble finding a gift for the man in your life that loves to travel, look no further than these perfect suggestions!

Published

on

We all know at least one. The guy who seems to be traveling every few months. They just can’t help themselves! They need to see the world and they need to see it now. So, with the holidays right around the corner, we thought we’d help you out by giving you some great gift ideas for the men in your life that love to travel. Take our word for it, they will love every single one of these items!

YETI RAMBLER 30 OZ. TUMBLER

Nobody loves staying hydrated more than frequent travelers! Whether they want to keep their water cold or their coffee hot, Yeti has some of the best products and this particular tumbler is one of the best on the market. It can be used for week-long camping trips, way-too-long flights, tailgating, you name it. They also look pretty awesome if I do say so myself.

72-HOUR MERINO TEE BY HUCKBERRY

Huckleberry is one of the lesser-known men’s wear brands out there, but that should really change. Especially when it comes to gear designed for travel. Take, for example, this amazing merino tee. It was specifically designed so it can be worn 3 days in a row! How perfect is that for those long travel days where you sometimes go well over 24 hours without access to a shower.

And get this… it’s also available in a long-sleeve version!

GOPRO HERO

GoPro’s almost seem like a thing of the past these days as we don’t hear about them all that much anymore. But make no mistake, they are still very cool. And they’ve only gotten better over the years. Their latest version, the GoPro HERO is truly amazing. It’s waterproof, comes with voice control, and features jaw-dropping stability regardless of whatever rocky terrain you may be traveling on while documenting.

So if your travel dude loves to livestream his adventures or recap them in videos after the fact, this is the perfect holiday gift for them.

RENEW LIGHTWEIGHT HOODED PUFFER JACKET BY EVERLANE

A good, durable jacket can be a literal lifesaver in some climates. But it can also be so hard to find the right one! Well, look no further than this perfect puffer jacket from Everlane. It’s reversible, surprisingly lightweight, and can be zipped into it’s own travel pouch, making it extremely easy to pack. This really is a must-have for any serious traveller.

LUMINA 5200 MAH ULTRA COMPACT PORTABLE CHARGER

It doesn’t matter how much we fight it, we simply can’t survive without our devices any more. We need them! Even if it’s just to play games to pass the time. But traveling is one of the easiest ways to accidentally let your battery run out.

That’s why a portable charger like this one from Lumina is vital to any successful travel experience. It’s one of the more affordable portable chargers out there and it comes with a lifetime warranty. It’s also available on Amazon so it couldn’t be easier to buy.

COMRAD COMPRESSION SOCKS

For whatever reason, foot comfort is one of the often overlooked elements of successful and enjoyable travel experiences. I don’t know why so many of us forget to take of our feet. We do use them to walk everywhere! But so many of us still do.

That’s why these compression socks from Comrad make such a simple yet perfect gift for the traveling man. They provide comfort, warmth, support, circulation, and can even prevent swelling. These really are a must-have.

HERSCHEL SUPPLY CO. BAGS

These Herschel Supply Co. bags most easily found at Nordstrom are the most affordable and durable bags out there. The duffel bag is ideal because it’s has all the room he’ll need but is still small enough to be a carry on. And the travel kit bag makes organizing easy by providing multiple pockets to make it easy for him find whatever toiletry or grooming accessory he needs in a flash.

I’ve actually used both of these bags and I really love them.
