One of the most popular things to do in Montana is to take a road trip, whether it’s a day trip or multi-week trip around the whole state.

Montana is the fourth biggest state in the country, so it’s easy to do a longer road trip vacation around it and never even leave the state. (Unless of course it’s to go into Yellowstone National Park, which we share with Wyoming and a sliver of Idaho!)

Because of the sheer number of road trip and scenic drive options in Montana, we’ve included day trip ideas which you can string together to make a longer road trip itinerary, or read through one of our longer road trip itineraries for vacation ideas.
