Still working on the Montana part of our big road trip next year.
Participants: a family of 4 from Israel. Kids aged 7 and 9.
We have a week booked in Yellowstone, ending on July 12, 2011.
From there, we'd like to get to Glacier NP, and then move on westward towards Washington. I'd like to see a bit of Montana on the way - whatever we can taste.
Here's what I have in mind for now, but I welcome any and all ideas and tips.
Bozeman - 1 night
Great Falls 2 nights
Glacier NP - Many Glacier area - 3 nights
Whitefish - 2 nights (we'll do the GTTS road moving from Many to this side of the park, then another day at the western side of the park from Whitefish).
From there, I was thinking about driving to Spokane for the rest of the journey. (We decided to skip Athol's amusement park).
We're fairly flexible, and can steal a day from another destination and add to this part of the road. Any ideas about special things to see and do in Montana? I incorporated Great Falls, both for the scenery up to there, as well as the falls themselves and the Lewis and Clark interpretive center. Also seemed like a place where we could do some shopping maybe, and just rest. I'm not married to that route though, so a different route from Bozeman to the eastern side of GNP is possible too.
If you can think about any interesting festivals, pow wows etc in mid-July in the area, that might be great too. Thanks!Edited: 21 September 2010, 20:20
