GETTING TO MONTANA IS EASIER THAN EVER

About

Whether you're enjoying breakfast (or ice cream) at Yesterday's Soda Fountain or enjoying Montana Moonshine at Willie’s Distillery in Ennis, you're guaranteed an earful about fly-fishing. Madison County is a mecca for anglers and adventurers, where at the El Western Cabins and Lodge you can practically cast out your cabin door.

Still, there's more here than "just" fishing. Hike Sphinx Peak outside Ennis or traverse the rock walls of Ramshorn's Trail near Sheridan. Walk the boardwalks of Virginia City or peer into the past at Nevada City where history comes to life every summer weekend. Taste "big city" fare during the summer at the Continental Divide in Ennis or revel in garden-grown eats, microbrews and a serenaded soak at Norris Hot Springs.

Time your trip to catch the Twin Bridges Fly-In, an aerial show with dinner at The Old Hotel or the Ennis Fourth of July Rodeo or a vaudeville play with the Virginia City Players at the Opera House. Any summer day is perfect for floating the Madison River, hiking up Bear Trap Canyon or discovering Branham Lake—and bring a pole, just in case.
