Showers

Question: Can I shower in a rest area?

Answer: No. Rest areas provide drivers with a place to take a break from driving, rest a bit, and use bathroom facilities. Showers are typically available in truck stops and travel centers like Flying J or TA Travel Centers.

Turnout

Question: What is a turnout?

Answer: A turnout is similar to a rest area but has few, if any, amenities. It may have been a rest area once but restroom buildings have since been removed and only the parking area remains. A turnout may also offer a scenic view of the surrounding landscape.
