4 day road trip

Road trip itinerary to make the most of 4 days in Montana. Where to fly in and out of (open to different locations), route to drive, what to do. Traveling group is a 37 year old and older parents (60's) not super active but would enjoy short easy hikes, scenic views and maybe a float trip. Thanks!

Montana (MT)

4 days is really short to cover Montana, even a week is tough. It's a huge state, so driving can take up most of your time. I would probably focus on one region. Flathead Valley or Glacier National Park might be stretching it depending on where you start.
Big Sky and Bozeman might be an option.
If you're not very mobile, you could start from the capitol in Helena and branch out from there. That gives you a base for hotels and restaurants. Helena Regional Airport is a nice small airport to fly in and out of, with decent car rental options. I'm thinking maybe Southwest Montana in 4 days?
If your parents are splurging, check out Missoula and The Ranch at Rock Creek =).

Thanks. We booked a flight into Bozeman and out of Kalispell.

Oh cool, I missed that you were open to different locations for flights. That’s even better to drive one-way and fly out. That’s a good way to maximize your 4 days. Have a great trip!
