deluxe rest stops

Having taken a couple of road trips (and read a Norwegian crime thriller) lately, I was kind of captivated by this slideshow of Norwegian rest stops.  My parents always favored rest stops over gas stations for potty breaks, which made sense when traveling with children, and lately I've been thinking it may be time to switch back to rest stops.  Especially as cars start getting better gas mileage, it seems a shame to stop at a gas station when you don't actually need gas.  Of course most rest stops aren't like this one, but I remember them being universally a cut above your average gas station.
