We live a city where we don't even own a car. So this is such an exciting road trip for my husband & me. We are planning a 2 week trip beginning Sept. 15th. We are flying in & out of Denver. I decided to rent a compact car which I hope is fine for this trip. Please advise otherwise.
The only definite so far is we have to be in Custer, ND on Sept 23rd. We're meeting up with friends for the Buffalo Roundup at Custer State Park. So we decided to do a road trip beforehand.
After doing much reading about the states, I have the following panned so far. I'd love to get your advice on my plans THANK YOU!
Denver to Steamboat Springs, Co - stay overnight
Steamboat Springs to Jackson, Wyoming - I know this will be about 7 hour trip. I planned on one night but should it be 2?
Drive through Grand Tetons to Yellowstone National Park- Stay overnight at Old Faithful Lodge.
Another night in Yellowstone at Mammoth Lodge - northern part.
Yellowstone to Bozeman, Mt for 2 nights
Bozeman to Cody - stay one night.
We still have another night before driving to Custer. Any suggestions after Cody. Should I stay 2 nights in Jackson & then drive from Cody to Custer which is a 6 hour drive? I'm confused.
This is the first time on this forum. I love it!
