Located In Southwest Montana
The "Richest Hill on Earth" is Butte, America—a city flush with history, culture, geology and adventure around every corner. Join a tour with Old Butte Historical Adventures and wander through the largest historical district in the U.S. Each July, enjoy the multicultural music and arts at the free Montana Folk Festival. Take in the panorama of the Berkeley Pit, then get the history of Butte at the World Museum of Mining, including an actual mine tour.
Next, relish in dining classics from the old and new world: Joe's Pasty Shop still bakes Butte's signature meat-pastry-pie or try fine dining at the Uptown Café. With its famed Wop Chop, Muzzy's Freeway Tavern sets the standard for fried pork chop sandwiches. Finally, drink in the spirit of Butte at Headframe Spirits and raise a toast to both the past and future.
Choose an antique room at the Finlen Hotel (complete with opulent turn-of-the-century lobby) for a historic-themed evening, or soak and sleep at nearby Fairmont Hot Springs Resort, with hot and cool pools, a spa, water slide and lodging.
