Best way to drive to Calgary from Omaha, NE

My family is planning a road trip from Omaha to Banff National Park this summer. Our first leg is Omaha to Calgary and we're trying to determine the best route. Google maps shows us taking I-29 to US-52, but we're concerned US-52 might be a 2 lane county road. I-90 looks better, but heads west in the US before we would turn north. Any thoughts? Your help is much appreciated!

hi

Have you book your accommodation for Banff yet? You really want to read the Canadian Rockies forum to see how hard it is to get anything at this time if you are not already set. https://www.tripadvisor.ca/ShowForum-g659487…

you can see US 52 using google streetview - this is near Minot https://goo.gl/maps/5nzBhF77L1q just move the yellow stickperson along the route

and gas is cheaper in the US. you want to check with www.gasbuddy.com to compare.

Thank you. Yes, we booked our accommodations back in January, thankfully. I hadn’t considered that gas would be cheaper in the US, thanks! I’ll check out the forum. Appreciate your reply!
