For more than 50 years the All American Flying J Travel Plaza has been serving truck drivers and locals in Breezewood, Pennsylvania.

Serving more than 12,000 drivers a month, the location’s 30,000 square feet spans three floors. In addition to its 250 parking spots, it has a Perkins, large convenience store, 12 showers and a truck repair facility.
