This Picturesque Montana City Right On The River Is A Nature Lover’s Dream Come True

“A River Runs Through It” may have been filmed in Livingston and Bozeman, but everyone knows the story was set in Missoula… and we can’t think of a better way to describe our beloved Zootown. With the Clark Fork cascading right through the heart of downtown and an abundance of recreational opportunities in the area, it’s easy to see why Missoula is such a nature lover’s paradise.

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/

With its stunning backdrops, river views, and scenic trails, it’s no wonder Missoula residents are some of the happiest Montanans. These charming towns in the Treasure State are also surrounded by stunning scenery.
