Gas Stations and Roadtrips

Have you ever been on a road trip and someone needs to use the restroom and someone is really hungry? Stopping at a rest stop or gas station can be daunting and an adventure. The cleanliness of the restrooms and the assortment of snacks and food items can be an issue.

Sometimes, I (Marisol) immediately walk out and head to another location because it is so dirty!

This is where Buc-ee’s comes in.

If you’ve never heard of this particular gas station, you are truly missing out on an experience in itself. Buc-ee’s is popular for its selection of snacks, spotless bathrooms, and over 100 gas pumps.

With a quick search on the internet, you will find just how popular this gas station is. People are known to travel great distances out of their way just to step inside the world of Buc-ee’s.

The gas station’s mascot, a beaver, is quite popular! The variety of general and regional based souvenirs, including apparel, and artwork dedicated to Buc-ee’s is worth the stop!

Buc-ee’s was founded in 1982 in Lake Jackson, Texas and now has 57 locations throughout the United States.

Recently, the company applied to rezone over 32 acres of land east of Interstate 75 and near Highway 326. This particular location is about an hour and a half from Walt Disney World.

Currently there are already two Buc-ee’s locations in Daytona Beach and St. Augustine, Florida. The Ocala location will be the first Buc-ee’s gas station off the I-75. I-75 takes you to the Turnpike which takes you to I-4 which takes you to the WDW property.

Misleading title for the article. Central Florida is the loop that now goes entirely around Orlando. If your coming down 75 to turnpike you would then take turnpike to 429 and come down backside of Disney. Stay off I4. Ocala is beautiful horse country. Buc-ees will fit in well since the store has a very country vibe. Enjoy the brisket sandwiches!

Yes I prefer the horses, they are ruining a beautiful place tearing up all the trees, wondering why all the animals are in their backyard well, I wonder why they’re taking away the animals homes, the beautiful horses people are selling their farmland because they must be offering. I’m good money so they can put a bunch of houses are clustered together. I agree with you wholeheartedly stop ruining the place.

I've never seen a Buc-ees so I'm kinda excited about it. I've heard a lot about them. I do love me a WaWa, too!

I think it’s great. Ocala is the up and fast growing central location in Florida with the World Equestrian Hotel and now Buc-ees!

Bucc-ees is a horrible abomination and we who live here don’t want it at all! What once was beautiful farm land will be turned into a corporate monstrosity ruining the character of our community.
