Great American Road Trip

Great American Road Trip

Hello, humans. You can call me Rick, and I’m a bit of an expert on something my family calls the road trip. There are so many ways to explore Billings in the magic riding machine and on your paws that I asked some of my friends at ZooMontana to help me come up with some trip ideas to pass along to you. To get started, I just need you to take a short quiz.

Friends Getaway

You like being around your besties, just like Pabu.
Life is an adventure.

Hit the trails at Swords Park, Zimmerman Park and Four Dances Recreation Area atop the Rimrocks to work up a sweat and take in the forever views. Cool off at six craft breweries, two distilleries and a cider mill along the Billings Brew Trail – Montana’s only walkable beer trail. Take a day to explore Southeast Montana’s national treasures like Pompeys Pillar, the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument and the ultimate scenic route – the Beartooth Highway. Relive old times over a meal at Walker’s, then keep the fun going into the night with hip martinis at Doc Harper’s.

Like you, Rick loves traveling with his family and taking in new experiences. Pack up the riding machine and get ready to forge an awesome adventure.

Eat ice cream at Big Dipper BEFORE dinner, because you’re on vacation. Play around in all the giant watering bowls like Yellowstone River and Lake Elmo. Meet the two-headed calf, Charlie Russel, at Yellowstone County Museum.

Gaze out the windows at the majestic Northern Rockies along the Beartooth Highway on your way to Yellowstone National Park.

Buy fun toys at SCHEELS and enjoy the sunset as a family atop the Rimrocks.

SOLO
Road Trip

The day is short and there’s so much to do. So pack your days full of exploring miles of trails at Swords Park, Zimmerman Park and Four Dances Recreation Area.  If you’re up for even more adventure, tackle the challenging mountain bike trails at Acton Recreation Area, or stop by SteepWorld Climbing & Fitness to get the gear you need to take vertical route to the top of the Rimrocks. After a day like that, you’ll want some quiet down time. Refuel with a big dinner at Buffalo Block Steakhouse and catch a show at the Alberta Bair Theater. Or learn about local culture with a visit to the Yellowstone Art Museum.

And don’t forget to stop by ZooMontana to say hello to Bert and friends!

Romantic
Road Trip

Just like Winston, you like to road trip with a significant other. Take it easy and reconnect.
Life is way too short to stress out.

Take time to get a massage at one of Billings’ spas and sip on a martini at Doc Harper’s. Spend some time conversing over great food at The Marble Table, then hit the Billings Brew Trail, Montana’s only walkable brew trail.

Together, explore the rich history and heritage of Southeast Montana with visits to places like the Yellowstone Art Museum, Pompeys Pillar National Monument and the Alberta Bair Theater.

Head out to Big Horn Canyon for some quiet time among amazing Montana nature.

And don’t forget to stop by and see Winston and all his friends at ZooMontana!
