I’m not certain what it says about my life that I’m so excited about the travel center that we stopped at in Texas. But I was excited, I still am excited and I want you to be excited too!
My son has traveled to Texas many times with my husband and last year they stopped at Buc-ee’s Travel Center in a different part of Texas. My son told me that they have about 100 gas pumps and a huge store so I thought we should stop and see. I mean we needed gas anyways!
We decided to go a tiny bit out of our way to go to their largest location in New Braunfels, TX. According to Wikipedia this is the world’s largest convenience store at 68,000 square feet.
There are 120 fuel pumps (no 18 wheelers allowed). There are 83 toilets and their bathrooms are spotless!!!
They have fresh beef jerky and sandwiches. The soda fountains seem to be endless, they have 4 icee machines with great flavors and walls and walls of packaged snacks.
Why don’t I live near one of these? I guess it’s true that they do everything bigger in Texas!
The store is spotless and the employees are so nice! We dropped something rather valuable and didn’t notice until we went back to the car. We went back in and my son started retracing our steps and I asked an employee. She immediately made an announcement to the other staff and literally within 30 seconds someone responded and had our item! You won’t find that kind of service in many places. I was so thankful!
They have an amazing store with just about anything you could ever need or want! It was nice to get out of the car for awhile and just walk around checking things out!
If you are traveling in Texas be sure to look for a location and stop by! It’s pretty awesome!
