Buc-ee's Largest Gas Station

May 14, 2023
  1. Where is the Bucee’s in Colorado?

As of the time of this writing (in 2023), the Bucees in Colorado hasn’t been finished yet. It will be built about 50 miles from Denver in a town called Johnstown by the start of 2024. Residents of Colorado are outrageously excited about this new addition to our gas station family – and if you’ve never been to a Buc-ee's before, you haven’t yet lived. Seriously. Go to Buc-ee's.  

  1. Where is Bucee’s from?

Buc-ee's, the nation’s largest gas station, is a Texan business through and through. Its headquarters is in Lake Jackson, Texas. It was founded in Clute, Texas, during the 1980s and its first-ever epic travel center opened in 2003. In 2018, Buc-ee's opened its first location outside of Texas in Alabama. In the following years, other out-of-Texas locations opened up in Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, and soon, Colorado – with many more states to come!  

  1. What are some other really fun gas stations in Colorado?

Buc-ee's is awesome, but it’s far from the first epic gas station in Colorado. In fact, there are a few more awesome gas stations in Colorado worth going out of your way to visit, such as:  

  • Johnson’s Corner – This gas station in Johnstown has been open every day since 1952, making it one of the oldest and longest-running gas stations in the country.  
  • Petrified Wood Service Station – Originally constructed in 1932, this ex-gas station is made of – you guessed it – petrified wood. It was a gas station, then it was a garage, and now it’s a landmark – but it counts!  
  • Native Roots Gas & Grass – This gas station is about as unique as it gets; it doubles as a dispensary and a pretty decent one loved by locals at that. It’s basically a dispensary with an attached gas station... and that’s incredibly unique, considering it’s the only one of its kind!
