Description

This image is an aerial view of the Amber Truck Stop which includes a hotel and a restaurant. The Truck Stop is in the very center of the image with a paved parking lot extending in front and behind the building. The Amber Hotel is the L-shaped building just northwest of the gas station. The Amber House Restaurant is directly south of the gas station. This particular location is just over the Savannah River on Gordon Highway in South Carolina. Some of the other businesses that you can see include Gibbs Auto Wrecking Company (the junkyard) and a Drive-In Movie Theater.
