      Road Trip to Rocky Mountains USA

      by Oneill2905 Online Now Dec 29, 2012 at 12:34 PM

      Me and my Husband are looking to book a fly drive holiday next year the last week of July/first week of August. After spending months looking at places to visit we have put together a draft itinerary as follows:

      Fly from UK to Denver - 2 Nights
      Denver to Lusk - 1 Night
      Lusk to Rapid City - 3 Nights
      Rapid City to Sheridan - 1 Night
      Sheridan to Cody - 1 Night
      Cody to Yellowstone - 3 Nights
      Yellowstone to Jackson (Grand Teton) - 2 Nights
      Jackson to Lander - 1 Night
      Lander to Estes Park - 2 Nights
      Estes Park to Colorado Springs - 1 Night
      Coloardo Springs to Denver Airpor Home

      I would very much appreciate any comments on the draft route above with any suggestions on alternative routes or must see places on the way. Also I am looking forward to Yellowstone more than anything do you think 3 nights is enough at Yellowstone? Also are there any places we are staying more than 1 night that does not warrant it?

      Also always appreciate any help.
      Thanks Kirsty

      How long should we spend there? a week or?

      Any valuable information is greatly appreciated.

      Thanks in advance/Christine

    • 7 days in the Rockies. Where to go?

      by lynjackson Online Now May 19, 2007 at 4:44 PM

      We have 7 days to spend in the Rocky mountains. We are planning to hire a car or RV in Calgary and doing a loop from there. We will be there in August, which we realise is high season. Is there likely to be a problem with getting RV sites or cabin/Bed & Breakfast accommodation? Would it be less crowded toward the end of the month, rather than the beginning? Are there places that really should be avoided in the high season?
      With only a week, we would prefer to base ourselves in just 2 or 3 different locations in this time. We would appreciate suggestions for places that would be good bases from which to explore the surrounding areas.

    • with or without an RV

      by robertcanada Online Now May 31, 2006 at 6:07 AM

      Hi everybody, I am considering going with the family (5) renting an RV and going from Vancouver to Calgary, via the rocky mountains and back to Vancouver this approx 2 weeks. Does anybody have some comments? i.e campgrounds, special excursions with/for children (10 to 14 yrs)etc.
      Is it worth going with an RV or do you recommend an mini van and sleep in hotels?
      Thanks
