Things to Do in Montana in Summer

Nicknamed "Big Sky Country" and "The Treasure State," when you think of Montana, outdoor recreation comes to mind. Whether you’re at wildlife rich Yellowstone or admiring the beauty of Glacier National Park, active pursuits can be found around every bend.


Paddle in peace at Georgetown

At mile-high Georgetown Lake, it’s easy to connect to nature’s pulse. Sprawling across the stunning landscape at the foot of the Anaconda Pintler Wilderness, this crystal-clear, 3,700-acre lake is a favorite refuge of canoeists, paddleboarders, anglers and birdwatchers.

After a day of recreation, make sure to visit nearby Philipsburg, where the National Register-listed main street is lined with beautifully painted Victorian buildings. Designated one of the "Prettiest Painted Places in America," Philipsburg reminds you of a simpler era filled with old-time delights — including the grandest candy store you may ever see.
