A combination of highway rest stops and promotional centers, usually found on major roads just after you pass the boundary going into a particular U.S. state. They usually have free maps, brochures for every tourist trap in the state, and sometimes samples (some of the Florida welcome centers have free orange juice, for example). The restrooms are usually relatively clean compared to other places along the interstates, too.
