Easy Drives, Big Fun, and Planning Tips
Montana is the perfect place for road tripping. There are miles and miles of open roads. The landscape is stunning and varied. And its towns are welcoming and alluring, with imaginative hotels, restaurants, and breweries operated by friendly locals. Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks are the crown jewels, but the Big Sky state is filled with hundreds of equally awesome playgrounds in which to mountain bike, trail run, hike, raft, fish, horseback ride, and learn about the region’s rich history, dating back to the days of the dinosaurs. And that’s just in summer. Come winter, the state turns into a wonderland. The skiing and snowboarding are world-class, and the state offers up everything from snowshoeing and cross-country skiing to snowmobiling and hot springs. Among Montana’s star attractions are ten national forests, hundreds of streams, tons of state parks, and historic monuments like Little Bighorn Battlefield and the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. Whether it’s a family-friendly hike or a peaceful river trip, there’s an experience that will recharge your spirit around every corner in Montana.
