The Small Town In Montana That’s One Of The Coolest In The U.S.
Livingston, Montana sits nestled along the Yellowstone River in Southwest Montana, about 25 miles east of Bozeman. For its relatively small size, it’s absolutely packed with character, charm and beauty… in fact, Livingston is highly underrated.
Livingston is a historical ranching and railroad town.
The location was perfect for a Northern Pacific Railway stop at the turn of the 20th century.
These days, it's the home of about 7,200 people and a place where you'll find many cultural amenities and outdoor pursuits.
For a city that's on the small side, there's a lot going on here.
If you enjoy local events and festivals, you'll love Livingston.
Between the annual 4th of July parade and festivities, the weekly Farmers Market that meets during summer, the Old Time Fiddler's Picnic and the local rodeos, just to name a few, you'll never be bored here.
Fly fishing is a popular way to pass the time here...
... and so is hiking.
This is Pine Creek Falls.
The historic Livingston Depot, built in 1902, was actually designed by the first architects for New York City's Grand Central Terminal.
It is now the Livingston Depot Center, operating as a museum and community center.
This little city has some excellent restaurants.
This is 2nd Street Bistro, which has a French inspired American menu and serves food grown and raised locally.
Livingston embodies an Old West spirit, but it also welcomes new businesses and supports the local arts community.
In other words, it's an amazing place to visit or to live.
Livingston is truly a beautiful place. No wonder it made the list of some of
Montana’s most picturesque places.
