A Trip To This Little Known Ruin In Montana Is Truly One In A Million

Montana is called the Last Best Place for a reason — we love preserving our past. Just visit one of our museums and you’ll find plenty of Treasure State gems. Or, if you’d rather have a more authentic experience, you can spend a day exploring the Parrot Smelter Ruins at Gaylord Ghost Town.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
