What’s the best season to visit Montana?

Here’s the thing: the Treasure State is always beautiful, no matter when you visit. There are many reasons why Montana is one of the most coveted scenic states in the country: the expansive land, distant mountain ranges, and unfettered natural attractions all come to mind. But we have a few other reasons why visiting Montana is a worthwhile venture, and they include the changing of the seasons. Depending on the time of year in Montana, there are different seasonal activities to participate in. For instance, have you ever wanted to take a sleigh ride the plains? How about picking your own pumpkins at a nearby pumpkin patch? Do you know the best place to view Monarch butterfly migration in the fall? The Treasure State offers a uniquely wonderful adventure depending on the season, and our guide to the best seasonal activities in Montana will get you prepared.
