9 Under-The-Radar Montana Towns You Should Be Visiting This Weekend
Before you know it, spring and summer will arrive, and our popular tourist towns will be flooded with visitors. But as Montanans, we owe it to ourselves to explore some of the more under-the-radar towns in ur beautiful state… and now is a great time to do it. Here are 9 great suggestions for weekend getaways.
1. Fort Benton
While tourists flock to our more well-known cities, you could be enjoying a weekend in one of our oldest and most charming places. Walk along the Missouri River, check out the historic landmarks, and spend the night at the beautiful century-old Grand Union Hotel.
Situated in a sweeping valley where the Beaverhead, Big Hole and Ruby Rivers meet, Dillon is an old gold rush town that maintains a cool historic look.
River Park. The Daly Mansion. Nap's Grill. Who wouldn't want to spend a weekend in Hamilton?
4. Red Lodge
People love to ski and snowboard at Red Lodge Mountain, but the town itself is pretty great. The great food, shops, and Carbon County Art Guild downtown will keep you occupied all weekend.
Need a laid back getaway that happens to be surrounded by natural beauty? Ennis is the place for you. Spend some time at a good old-fashioned Western saloon and catch a movie at the Madison Theater.
Make no mistake about it: Havre is incredibly cold at the moment. But bundle up and explore this old railroad town anyway. It's worth it.
Check out the incredible St. Mary's Mission, shop for antiques, eat delicious food and catch a performance at Stevensville Playhouse (if you're lucky). There's a lot going on in this tiny town.
Simply put, Anaconda doesn't ever seem to get the credit it deserves. The Washoe Theater is a cool historic venue from the 1930s, and the Hearst Free Library on Main Street is a must-see for all readers.
Located in Rosebud County about 45 miles west of Miles City, Forsyth is a fun place to spend a relaxing weekend. If it gets too cold, just pop into Forsyth Second Hand Store, which is full of treasures you never knew you needed.
