Delaware I-95 Rest Stop of the Future

I recently stopped at the Delaware I-95 stop. It is incredible. It's like walking into an airport concourse. Natural light comes in through a large row of windows near the roof. They sell Delaware fresh farm products as you walk in the southbound entrance. I counted at least four stores and 10 types of food menus. The direct opposite of the past facility.

Opened in 2010, so perhaps no longer the "Rest Stop of the Future," but it sounds like an improvement.
