Montana Vacations

Montana is a mountainous place (hence the name), with popular aliases like “Big Sky Country” and the “Land of the Shining Mountains.” It’s not hard to see that the locals here are proud of their grand setting, and it’s these attractions that bring in millions of tourists a year. From Glacier National Park to the many Native American reservations, ... Read more
Montana is a rugged landscape where visitors can still get a bit of that frontier history and culture. Perhaps its most notable point of interest is Yellowstone National Park, a massive stretch of protected wild land that needs little introduction. Additionally, world-class ski resorts like Big Sky Resort provide wintertime fun while beer microbreweries — the state ranks third in the nation in the number of craft breweries per capita — offer activities for those who prefer more sedentary sports.

Sliced in half by the Continental Divide, Montana’s eastern and western regions experience two different climates: the west tends to have more mild winters and cooler summers, while the east gets colder and ... Read more
hotter, though it tends to be sunnier and less humid. In the winter, the entire state gets its share of snow, drawing an annual crowd of visitors to its popular ski resorts. Despite snow, winter temperatures are relatively mild, and cold spells are quickly broken up by warm Chinook winds. In the summer, families flock to Yellowstone National Park, so if you’re headed to this area, it might be better to visit in the spring or fall when you can get a photo of roaming buffalo without scads of other GoScopes blocking your view.

Montana is what the touts call big sky country. I couldn't quite wrap my head around what that meant exactly till I saw a sunset over the mountains around Helena and I got it - Montana is one of those places where you can actually feel just how small and insignificant you really are in relation to the million of years and the raw force of nature that all came together to make that spectacular sunset over the mountains you just saw. Big sky country ain't just a slogan to get tourists to come, it's the plain truth of what it is.
