TOURIST ATTRACTIONS

GLACIER COUNTRY


The northwest corner of Montana is home to more than alpine summits presiding over glacial carved valleys. Farmer’s markets abound, sailors drop their centerboards in the turquoise waters of Flathead Lake, and cherry orchards blossom along the flanks of the Mission Mountains.




CENTRAL MONTANA

Central Montana bridges the gap between mountains and rolling prairies. Paddle a canoe down the wild and scenic, history-steeped Missouri River; camp along its White Cliffs; this region is full of stunning diversions. Don’t miss the C.M. Russell Museum in Great Falls.





MISSOURI RIVER COUNTRY


The rolling, short grass prairies of Missouri River Country are a wildlife-rich Serengeti for sportsmen. This slice of Big Sky Country offers you opportunities to troll for trophy walleye in the waters of Fort Peck Reservoir, stalk elusive pronghorn antelope or hunt for that perfectly preserved dinosaur fossil.




YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK




Yellowstone National Park, established in 1872 and located primarily in Wyoming, was America's first national park. To this day, Yellowstone remains one of the country's most popular national parks with almost four million annual visitors. Yellowstone spans almost 3,500 miles, and extends into parts of Montana and Idaho, making it the largest National Park in the US.

Yellowstone National Park sits on top of a dormant volcano and is home to more geysers and hot springs than any other place on earth. Approximately 50 percent of the world’s hydrothermal features are at Yellowstone National Park. The most famous of all the geysers is Old Faithful, one of the most popular and recognized natural wonders in the United States.

In addition to its numerous geological features, Yellowstone National Park also has plentiful wildlife including the United States' oldest and largest bison herd, wolves, elk and grizzly bears. The wildlife is a huge draw for photographers who visit the park to capture Yellowstone animals in their natural habitat.
