Service stations and restaurants along I-70 Highway
When traveling, one of the most important things to be aware of along the way is service stations that are close to the exit. Nothing is more frustrating than getting off an exit only to have to drive two miles or more to find the service station noted on the highways sign. Service stations such as Huck’s Food and Fuel (Exit 236) in St. Louis, MO and C&K Food and Gas (Exit 273) in Denver, CO., are less than a mile from I-70 and also have food options making them one-stop shops along the way.
Traveling can be a tiring adventure, but with a little careful planning, you can make things easier if you know what to expect on the road ahead.
