wow! What I saw when I turned left inside Buc-ee’s In Temple, Texas [PICS]

As the saying goes… everything is bigger in Texas.

That said, I’ve never seen a gas station with more than 50 gas pumps.

Then I visited Buc-ee.

What is Buc-ee?

If you don’t know or have never visited the popular one-stop highway store that has over 35 locations in Texas, you have to!

You can get everything at Buc-ee, from gas and keychains to candles, chest, goat’s milk soap and everything in between.

Buc-ee’s got bigger

According to to their siteBuc-ee’s, not only has multiple locations here in Texas, but they’ve expanded into southern states like Georgia, Alabama, and Florida.

World’s Biggest Buc-ee Coming Soon

Later that year, Buc-ee’s a plans to open “World’s Largest Buc-ee” located in Sevierville, Tennessee. It will have 120 fuel pumps, a 250-foot car wash and 74,000 square feet of interior stores.


I never turned left

In almost 7 years I’ve been here in Texas, I’ve never turned left when I walked into a Buc-ee’s.

Either I walk straight to the bathroom or I turn right for water or gummy bears or chocolate almonds. (I get the same thing every time)

But yesterday I decided to turn left and (I know I’m late) I was mesmerized!

For starters, I never had a reason to turn left.

I visited the one in Waller County, Bastrop and the temple.

Every time I’ve visited Buc-ee’s, I’ve never had a reason to go “shopping”, always have a bathroom break, then hit the road again.

So here are some of the cool things I saw when I turned left at Buc-ee’s in Temple, TX!
