This Free application automatically finds your location and displays nearby rest areas. The rest areas are displayed on a map along with your current location. In addition to rest areas, scenic vistas and welcome centers are also shown on the map. The rest areas are displayed with different colored hot air ballon icons. To find out more information about each place you simply click on the hot air ballon icon. When you click on an icon more information such as amenities are given to you.

As you move, the application will notice your location has changed and automatically update the map. There is a settings icon on the bottom right of the map that allows you to change how far out (from your current location) you want to look. You can change this from 100 to 500 miles.

It's really easy to figure out the distance from current location to the rest area.

We have thousands of rest areas for you to discover, however some close, some new ones pop up. So we've included a button to leave your comment or you can send us email if some of the information is not correct.

Currently only rest areas in the US and CA are covered.

What's New in Version 3.1

1. Bug fix.
2. Add the Rest Area Title on the detail page.

Crappiest app ever

Downloaded this while on a trip up I-95 from Richmond to DC. Immediately after downloading it, I searched for the closest rest area. Stupid app didn't reveal ANY for northbound I-95. Less than 10 minutes later, what did we pass? A rest area on the northbound side. Huh.

Next day, driving southbound, REALLY needed a rest area. Stupid app tells me the nearest one for cars is 38 miles away. There is one about 12 miles up that is for "trucks only". So, at about 12 miles, we see signs for a rest area. Are we going to stop? No - that one's for trucks. Oops! No it isn't - there's actually a beautiful rest area with a sign that says: "no trucks".

The makers of this app should have to pay me for allowing this (cr)app on my phone for a day.

5/5 stars

Great update

The update is pretty cool. Like the color theme setting option and the comments for each place.

5/5 stars

Very handy app

I liked its simplicity. Told me all I needed to know - that a rest area was coming up and how long it would take for me to get there.
