4 Freshwater Beaches In Montana That’ll Make You Feel Like You’re At The Ocean

This has been a strange year, and for many Montanans, a trip to the ocean just isn’t possible this summer. But while Montana isn’t a coastal state, you’ll still find some fantastic beaches on our freshwater shorelines — and some of them even have surf and sand that rivals the ocean. While you’ll never mistake any of these landscapes for the Pacific shoreline, spending a day at these beaches will definitely leave you feeling just as relaxed and rejuvenated.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
