Did y'all know that there are multiple roads named after Buc-ee's? These are very lucky roads. According to Google Maps on October 24, 2021 and later on January 16, 2022 (y'all's truly is a dedicated blogger who thinks ahead), there are currently six roads named Buc-ee's Boulevard throughout the South -- four in Texas and two in Alabama.
However, this number is increasing. According to AL.com, there appears to be a seventh road to bare that name. Back in October, it broke ground on the forthcoming location in Auburn, Alabama. There could likely be other streets named Buc-ee's Boulevard since new streets are created all the time, and it takes awhile for mapping services that serve Google Maps to update with new roads.
So, why is Auburn getting a Buc-ee's Boulevard? Yeah... We know; that's obvious. It's the location of the third location in Alabama. At 53,470 square feet and 120 gas pumps, that's clearly a future travel center full of all stores of grub (fresh and otherwise) and merchandise. AL.com puts it well by stating: "The Texas-based, Texas-sized convenience store is expanding throughout the South, with locations in Baldwin County and Leeds, and one planned for Athens."
What's a boulevard? Zipcar did some research about road naming conventions related to the difference between streets, lanes, terraces, courts, and so on and reports: "Then there are boulevards, which are even wider streets lined with trees on both sides, plus a median in the middle."
Fun fact: An odonym is the name of a street.
