Montana is one of the best places to visit in the United States, thanks to its majestic beauty—mountain ranges with craggy cliffs and massive expanses of open land showcasing the blue horizon stretching all around. Nicknamed “Big Sky Country,” Montana is well-known for its stunning gorgeousness, the many amazing ways you can connect with nature when you visit.
Check out a few of the cool things to do while visiting Montana.
Exploring Yellowstone National Park
Even though most of the park is in Wyoming, some stretches extend into Idaho and Montana. This world-famous park will give you access to natural phenomena like hot springs, a super-volcano, and geysers. Camping and hiking in Yellowstone is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for veteran campers.
Off-Roading in a National Forest
With all those open spaces and rocky terrains, Montana is a great destination to explore off-roading possibilities. And there are plenty of them. Many tourists flock to the largest national forest in the state, the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, for hiking, camping, and other fun, but it also has an amazing off-roading trail that’s perfect for seasoned enthusiasts or eager beginners.
Learning at the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center
Want to get up close to the predators that roam the Montana plains—without putting yourself in danger? The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center is a nonprofit center dedicated to educating the public on wolves, grizzlies, and other little critters like squirrels and hawks that call this state home, showcasing the roles they all play in the local ecosystem.
