Here Are 7 Things You Can Only Find In Montana
If you live in Montana, you already know what an incredibly unique and amazing state it is. In fact, we’ve got a few bragging rights no other state can claim. How many of these one-of-a-kind wonders have you seen?
1. Glacier National Park
Glacier has been called the crown jewel of the continent, and Montana holds exclusive bragging rights to it. If you've never gone, start planning a trip for next summer and prepare to be amazed.
2. Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park
This limestone cavern is unlike anything you'll find anywhere else. Montana's first-ever state park has a great campground, and it's a beautiful place to spend a weekend.
3. Museum of the Rockies, Bozeman
The Museum of the Rockies is recognized as one of the world's finest research and history museums, not to mention its incredibly extensive collection of dinosaur fossils. And quite a few of those fossils were found right here in Montana.
4. Flathead Lake
Flathead Lake is the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, measuring in at 195 square miles of surface water. It's clear, pristine, and totally unique.
5. Garden of 1,000 Buddhas
Montana might be the last place you'd expect to see a Buddhist display such as this, but if you think about it, it fits right in with our live and let live mentality. The project was created through the visionary guidance of Gochen Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche, an incarnate Tibetan Buddhist lama.
6. Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, West Yellowstone
This one-of-a-kind wildlife viewing area allows you to see grizzlies and wolves up close and personal, and it's fascinating. The animals here are well taken care of, and while hours vary by season, you can visit anytime.
7. Quake Lake
Southwest Montana has a lake created entirely by an earthquake in 1959. While the quake was tragic (unfortunately, lives were lost), the resulting lake is pretty impressive.
These are just a few of the attractions that make Montana so beautifully unique. Here are some
