‘I visited world’s biggest truck stop with cinema and dentist, it’s like a city’

Anadventurer stumbled upon the world’s largest truck stop complete with its own movie theatre, arcade and dentist.

Eva zu Beck, 32, explored some of the US’least visited states in her van with her trusty pooch, Milk. While on her trip, the Polish vlogger stopped off in Iowa and amidst the beautiful scenery, she came across a major tourist attraction: Iowa 80.

Free-spirited Eva recorded her journey on herYouTube channel last month, as she explored the ginormous truck stop which had all the amenities of a small city. Iowa 80 is situated in Walcott ands sits on a 225 acre plot, boasts a whopping 900 parking spaces, and welcomes around 5,000 travellers each day.

At first, Eva thought it was simply a tacky souvenir shop, but on closer inspection, she learned the true scale of the place. “So this truck stop, the moment you enter it, it's just, it's huge. It's absolutely vast,” she said as she stepped inside the shopping mall-like facility.

“I think you could keep yourself entertained for at least 24 hours here.” The world of transport doesn’t operate on a typical 9-5, and in its entire 59-year history, Iowa 80 hasn’t closed its doors for a single day, the traveller claimed.

A smile emerged from ear to ear as Eva stepped into an arcade, complete with a suite of different games. She swiftly moved on to a “pretty sizable” laundry – which wasn’t quite as entertaining.

Next, she checked out the cinema before stopping by the barber shop, which alas, was closed. As well as the usual essentials you’d find in most towns, Eva also swung by the dentist. And for drivers who get stiff in their HGVs all day, there’s even an onsite chiropractor.

Blown away by the trucker attraction, the explorer took to Instagram to share her thoughts. “So to me, as a European, there's a lot of things about this truck stop that are simply… astounding,” she wrote.

“And the sheer size is definitely one of them because we simply do not have truck stops anywhere this big anywhere in Europe, you know?”

Finally, just before leaving, her pooch got a little love too. Eva discovered that Iowa 80 even has its own dog wash for mucky pups on their travels and she gave Milk a good clean.

The truck stop must have been the pinnacle, because shortly after her stop – and after driving around America in her van for a year and a half – Eva decided to return to Europe to find a more permanent living situation.
