Central Montana

When it comes to Central Montana, the question is, how far back in time would you like to go? To 1960s kitsch at the Sip’n Dip in Great Falls, a tiki bar with live performing mermaids? To Rockwellian winters, schussing the time-honored slopes of Montana’s oldest ski area? Or back to painter Charlie Russell’s frontier West, viewed from the windows of a dinner train? Here, you’ll experience Fort Benton’s days as a fur-trading outpost, Lewis and Clark’s 1805–06 Montana expedition, and Bear Paw Battlefield, where Chief Joseph resigned to “fight no more forever.”
