  1. Default Driving from Dallas TX to Calgary, AB Canada. Leaving Dallas Friday July 23

    We are taking 5-6 days to drive from Dallas TX to Calgary, AB Canada. Our planned route is generally, Dallas to Amarillo and north from there to Billings Montana and into Alberta. Does anyone have any suggestions for route changes, places of interest to stop, anything at all?

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    You're looking at a solid four day drive, but have five days to make it to Calgary. What I'd suggest, then, is taking 2-3 hours each day for a little detour/sight-seeing/hiking. A few places that would work for you would be Caprock State Park or the Cadillac Ranch near Amarillo; Capulin Volcano National Monument in northeast New Mexico; Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs; Rocky Mountain National Park northwest of Boulder, CO; Ayers Natural Bridge State Park outside Douglas, WY; and the Little Bighorn Battlefield in Garryowen, MT. You probably won't be able to see all of them and certainly can't do all of them justice with only a day to spare, but that should give you an idea of what's available.
