Road Trip To Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, and ???

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a road trip in September. We're leaving from California and the only thing set in stone, at this point, is a visit to Yellowstone. We have reservations at the Old Faithful Lodge and will revolve the trip around that. I'm just beginning my research and would like to get tips and suggestions for any "must sees", "must dos", and hidden gems that you might be able to offer. We do know we want to see Mt. Rushmore and the Little Bighorn Battlefield.

We are in our 60s and interested in photography and history. We know distances in that part of the world are great, but we're good travelers (we've been to all 7 continents and have decided it is time to better appreciate our own country!!). We did a similar trip to the South West in 2010 and are perfectly happy to drive all day long!

Time isn't really an issue for us, and we want as much flexibility as possible. We like to have a loose itinerary, then decide in the evening where we will go the next day.

Thanks, in advance, for any little hints you might be able to offer, including suggestions for great places to eat/stay as well as beautiful photo ops and interesting historical places.
