Just 23 miles south of the Welcome to Las Vegas sign is Jean Nevada. Exit 12 on Interstate 15. It is home to the Gold Strike Casino and Hotel and now its also home to the worlds largest Chevron Travel Center. Hold the applause please, until the end….
This place is massive! A tourist stop all by itself.

On the day I visited, the gas prices were a bit more than they are in Las Vegas, yet much cheaper than they are in Los Angeles. $3.85 a gallon for regular unleaded and $3.53 a gallon for diesel. With 95 fuel pumps, I am pretty sure the wait for a pump will be very short. If you have ever traveled this way, you know there is always a line at the fuel pumps in Primm, on the Nevada/California border.
The next time you are heading out on the I-15 near the California border, stop in and see this place. It’s Huge!
Once you stop here, just continue down the road to the Pioneer Saloon. One of the most historic and haunted places in Nevada! We talked about in a Podcast and featured its haunted lockdown.
