Erie Island Travel Plaza
Travelers on the Thruway will find plenty of rest stops and welcome centers to choose from, day or night. Some of the larger, better known locations have their own websites which can be accessed with a smart phone or turnpike app downloaded on an iOS or Android device.
For sheer size and convenience, few places rival Erie Island travel plaza east of Fremont – its popularity making it one of the busiest areas in town.
One of the standout attractions at this stop is its expansive, air-conditioned multi-story food court featuring delectable options from Sbarro to Starbucks.
The food court also boasts a massive, fully automated gas station.
It also houses some smaller convenience stores, the latest in smart phone technology and some of the friendliest personnel I’ve ever encountered.
