Why This One Tiny Town Is Secretly The Best Place In Montana
With a population of just 920 people, Philipsburg certainly qualifies as a tiny town. But for such a small place, it’s quite big on character. In fact, we happen to think it’s a top contender for the best place in Montana. Here’s why.
Its location can't be beat.
Philipsburg is located in Granite County, a scenic and picturesque place in Western Montana known for its mining history. Quiet and rural with plenty of museums and ghost towns, it's an amazing place to visit or to live.
It's undeniably charming.
Philipsburg has become a favorite vacation destination for both Montanans and out of state tourists. It's got a 19th century charm that's hard to find anywhere else.
Despite its small size, there's always plenty to do here.
From Craft Beer Week in May to the Going to the Sun Rally in September, there's always something fun on the calendar.
The Gem Mountain Sapphire Mine is pretty amazing.
Sift through sand and stone and find your very own sapphires to take home.
The restaurant selection here is fantastic -- especially if you like pizza, BBQ, and good old-fashioned American classics.
UpNSmokin' Bbq House is outstanding.
There's even an old-fashioned soda fountain, Doe Brothers.
They make an incredible (and huge) banana split here.
Simply put, Philipsburg is a small town that's big on charm and full of friendly, welcoming people.
It's really no wonder Montanans tend to fall in love with it.
Philipsburg is a true gem, just like these
