Montana – Big Sky, Butte, Missoula, West Yellowstone and More
As you venture past the west, north or northeast entrances of Yellowstone National Park, you’ll find delightful towns like West Yellowstone, Missoula, Big Sky and Butte Montana filled with beauty, history and excitement. Livingston, the northern gateway to Yellowstone, is a delightful mountain town that’s close to Big Sky and on the way to Butte. It is one of Montana’s most interesting and colorful towns, where gold was once found in abundance. Further up I-90 is Missoula filled with cultural activities, trails and attractions plus Glacier National Park. Great Falls, Ft. Benton and other towns follow the famous Lewis and Clark corps of discovery route. Don’t miss a stop in Helena, the state’s capital. West Yellowstone is just outside Yellowstone Park’s west entrance. West Yellowstone is a rustic mountain town filled with watchable wildlife and adventures for every season.
Billings is Montana’s Trailhead, where exceptional air service, big-city amenities and small-town affordability make it the perfect place to begin your western journey.
