USA Rest Stops was designed to be an easy-to-use rest stop locator on the US Interstate system.
If viewing on a mobile phone, this web app has the ability to access the GPS on the phone,
determine your current location, and show you the rest stops within 50 miles of your location.
As your GPS location changes, so will the available rest stops. Those that come within range
will be displayed and those out of range will be removed.
If your mobile phone does not have GPS, fear not! You can click the "Menu" button in the upper left
to see a menu allowing you to view rest stops by state or by highway. Select the state you are
traveling in and then the highway you are traveling on. This will show you a listing of all rest
stops, welcome centers, or service plazas on your highway. Each item will have a mile marker and
direction associated with it. You can filter NB/SB or EB/WB by pressing the button in the upper
right. Selecting one of the rest stops will show you details about the location such as facilities
available, hours, etc.
You can also view this site in a standard web browser! The browser has access to both the map and
the list views. When viewing the map, simply zoom in to the area you would be traveling. When you
reach the appropriate zoom level, the map will be populated with all of the available rest areas,
welcome centers, and service plazas. Clicking on any of the items will show you details about the
location such as facilities available, mile marker, etc.
