  1. Default Help Plan our family trip from Atlanta to Montana

    We are planning a road trip with our boys to Montana and would love to have some advice and must see places on the way. We have never taken a road trip like this. We only have two weeks planned for this trip.

    Welcome to the RTA forum!

    We really aren't big believers in generic "must sees" around here, as any "musts" are going to depend upon your own interests.

    Having said that, the even bigger issue is that montana is a gigantic state, and without knowing where you are heading, it is even harder to make general recommendations, as destinations in the west part of the state are vastly different from those in the east.

    Welcome to RTA!

    I just did a little calculation, assuming that you'd be going to the NW corner of Montana. That's about a 2400 mile drive from Atlanta (4 days at 600 mi per day, or almost 5 days of 500 mi per day). If you have to get back to Atlanta in the same two weeks, that will limit what you can do on the way up and on the way home.

    Best thing to do is to get into the Map Center here and look to see what might interest you and your boys. Pick out some dots and then we can help you determine routing, and make any other recommendations.

    The fun is in the planning - plus the trip itself. :-)

    Default Nothing like a good old map.

    Donna's posted some great ideas. If you take them, and lay them all out on a large map of the US, you will see what else there is along the way, or what you may consider as a worthwhile detour. Then, working with electronic mapping, you can refine each step of the way.

    Note that even 500 miles a day will leave you and your family very little time for sightseeing and exploring any points of interest. Along that route, there are thousands.... if you get off the Interstates.
