Westward Ho!

I am planning a trip from Kansas City to Butte, MT in July.
Any recommendations on route and places to stay or avoid?
I have been to Yellowstone several times so will not be going through that route.

Mount Rushmore then 90. It's a lovely drive! Enjoy. Butte was not that great for us. But we loved Helena, gates of the mountain boat ride, the Capitol, Missoula is very nice also.

A number of options, according to what you like. From KC, you could go north on I-29 to Sioux Falls, w on I-90. You've got the Bad Lands NP, Mt. Rushmore, Devil's Tower, Little Big Horn. Or at Omaha, go west on I-80. At Ogallala,NE, go W on US 26. At Bridgeport, NE, go north on US 385 to Alliance and Carhenge. Then on to Scottsbluff National Monument and the Oregon/Mormon Trail visitor's center. On west on US 26 you'll come to Ft. Laramie National Historic Site. Then go north on I-25 to Buffalo, WY and west on I-90.

Thanks Krash.

Yes, Butte is definitely a different place. A lot of history to be learned there, especially about the environment. It is a shame that Columbia Gardens burned down years ago.

Any recommendations on places to stay between Rapid City and Butte?

Thanks BFlinn, great options to consider.

We usually stop at Big Timber in MT. Years ago we stayed at broad us MT for $12. I think I would see Custers last stand. I am sure you find plenty of nice stops!

Montana is "back East" for us, though we do have a grand-daughter studying for a BS degree in wildlife management at U of M in Missoula.
