Besides ice cream, there are many reasons to stop at Little America’s 24-hour Travel Center (and there are just as many highway signs advertising those).

There’s a Grill & Deli serving standard road food: hamburgers, sandwiches, hot dogs, corn dogs, fries, coffee for weary travelers, and an all-day breakfast menu. There’s a convenience store selling snacks and Wyoming souvenirs.

Covey on the Lincoln Highway it became a popular spot as travel centers were few and far between. Today the location became so popular the chain spawned three addition locations in Flagstaff, Arizona; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Cheyenne, Wyoming.
