A Miles City Meander

Located in Southeast Montana

Yellowstone River


No one leaves Miles City a stranger. Expect smiles and waves from the locals on your first stroll through Main Street, plan on the patrons at the Hole in the Wall to ask where you're from and don't be surprised when the waiter at the Montana Rib and Chop remembers your dinner and drink from the time before.

This tiny town's roots run deep—something that's as evident in the extensive Range Riders Museum as in the old-fashioned way the town gathers at the outdoor ice rink, art exhibit at the Waterworks Art Museum or the Miles City Music On Wings Bluegrass Festival held each September. Miles City is still very much a cowtown, evidenced by the Miles City Bucking Horse Sale, held each May.

But nowhere does the town's neighborly hospitality, historic past and rancher roots come together like they do in the Montana Bar—a friendly rancher's meeting spot, virtually unchanged since opening day in 1908.
