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 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/
