Hello, I am in need of advice for the best road route from Minnesota to Calgary this summer in August. I have looked at maps and came up with a few routes. We are doing this drive in 2 days / 1 night hotel stop, day 1 will be our longest day and day 2 goal is to arrive by 5 or 6pm in Calgary.
#1 94 through ND into Glendive, MT and take 200S north to Hwy 2 West to Glasgow and stop there for the night. Day 2 continue to Shelby, MT take the I-15? North into Canada to Calgary....
Notes: Should be at least 70mph all the way... Is Montana Hwy 2 a good road to be traveling at highspeed on all the way across MT?
#2: 94 West to Belfield, ND and take 85 North to Moose Jaw, SK and stay the night there, take the TransCanadaian HWY 1 to Calgary.
#3: RandMcNally.com says to go from Minneapolis to Grand Forks to Winnipeg and then take the
Notes: Seems kind of pointless to go straight north to Winnpeg and drive most of the way to Calgary on canadian hwy with the high gas prices.
Any recommendations? How much does gas cost in Canada compared to northern U.S.?
