Montana to Wyoming: Glacier Views and Yellowstone
West Glacier to Old Faithful, going through West Yellowstone: about 440 miles
Why go: Immortalized onscreen in The Shining, Going-to-the-Sun Road winds for 50 miles through Glacier National Park and offers a view of Triple Divide Peak (one of three places in the world where water travels in three directionsto the Atlantic, the Pacific and Hudson Bay). In Yellowstone National Park, Old Faithful's eruptions soar up to 185 feet high.
Where to stay: Six hours into Montana, drivers reach the Gallatin Gateway Inn, a 33-room property in a historic railroad building (doubles from $119).
What to eat along the way: The Gallatin Gateway Inn's Porter House restaurant serves dry-aged bison strip steak. In Bozeman, MT, La Châtelaine Chocolat Co. makes exquisite truffles.
