The Mining Town In Montana Where Time Stands Still

Given Montana’s rich mining history, it comes as no surprise that the Treasure State is still packed with charming mining towns that have a ton of character. But there’s one little city, in particular, that seems frozen in time – in the best way. When you visit Red Lodge, you might find that you walk a little more slowly, check your phone less often, talk to more strangers, and enjoy being present in the moment. That’s no accident – this spot has a way of taking us back to the good old days.

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:

Of course, Red Lodge has seen its share of changes over the years, but the locals do a great job of preserving its history and timeless small-town charm.

If you love these small towns that are full of nostalgia, you’ll also want to check out the glorified ghost town of Pony.
