About Oasis Travel Center
Oasis Travel Center was built in 1996 in Robertsdale, Alabama. Owner Karen Brown added a fabulous over-the-top travel themed environment to welcome guests, offering a unique twist to the experience. When guests enter through the over-sized 1969 VW “Lovebug” entrance, they are surrounded by 5500 square feet of unique retail and travel-themed fun. From an actual vintage horse drawn buggy to a real depression-era pickup, pirate ship, big yellow school bus and 1920s-era dining car, you can’t miss the extraordinary attention to detail that defines the travel center. The Derailed Diner is designed around a full-sized school bus lunch counter, tables made from REAL pickup truck tailgates, saddle topped bar stools, shadow box tables filled with all kinds of travel memorabilia AND the pride and joy–a 1920s era train dining car. It is as much a feast for the eyes as the belly. The train car is home to “Turkey-On-The-Train”, the Thanksgiving dining event, “Love-On-TheTrain”, the Valentine's Evening Event and a free professional performance of the Polar Express for four nights each December for children in the community.
