Big Sky — 2 nights

Big Sky is a census-designated place (CDP) in Gallatin and Madison counties in southwestern Montana. Your day by day itinerary now includes Gallatin National Forest. Venture out of the city with trips to Yellowstone National Park (Grand Prismatic Spring & Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone). There's lots more to do: take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Lone Peak, and relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour.

To find ratings, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Big Sky sightseeing planner.

Lafayette to Big Sky is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time (CST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST), which is usually a -1 hour difference. While traveling from Lafayette, expect little chillier days and cooler nights in Big Sky, ranging from highs of 77°F to lows of 39°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Wed) early enough to fly back home.

The Crown of the Continent
With a population of only one million, Montana remains an untouched natural paradise of snowcapped peaks, expansive forests, and alpine lakes, dotted with Old West ghost towns, Indian reservations, and progressive urban communities. Appreciate the state's unique charm and beauty with a trip to Glacier National Park, where you can come face-to-face with Montana wildlife among its high peaks. Head to the state's largest cities, Billings and Missoula, for an array of historical attractions and cultural sightseeing.
