While leaving Rocks & More I happened to notice some old cars at the gas station next door so we decided to check them out.
Outside the Valle Travel Stop sits a small, but impressive collection of vintage cars and gas pumps. I don’t know anything about cars, but I love the look of old cars. The vehicles sitting in the parking lot range from muscle cars, to antique trucks, an old army vehicle and my favorite was a vintage police cruiser.
A number of original and reproduction vintage gas pumps are scattered among them. I have no idea what the story is behind why the cars are on display here. I’m sure a number of gearheads stop in though just to check them out.
The Valle Travel Stop also includes the Grand Canyon Inn and Chevron gas station. A large souvenir shop and a small convenience store is located inside. They also contain a Native American Art & Jewelry Gallery. The Grand Canyon Inn has a restaurant and cocktail lounge.
Outside the Chevron station you can also get water. We spent almost 3 weeks camping outside the south rim of The Grand Canyon and this is where we stocked up on water. We filled up our Aqua-tainer water containers here, but you could fill up rv’s too. It’s not free, but it was extremely cheap.
If you are on your way to The Grand Canyon it’s a convenient and quick stop on your route. Fill up your tank, grab some souvenirs and see some old cars. Next door is a rock shop and Bedrock City is across the street. This little intersection off the highway is a great way to waste an hour seeing some cool things.
