Billings Area Adventures
Where can you get horses and dinosaurs in one spot? Saddle up for a wild ride around Billings, where both riding trails and fossils await. Eastern Montana is home to both Southeast Montana and Missouri River Country tourism regions, where rolling plains, prairies, and badlands intersect to form some of the Lower 48's vastest stretches of pristine landscape.
Exploring Missouri River Country
Lewis and Clark navigated the Missouri River in 1804. More than two centuries later, there's still a lot to discover along the river's Wild and Scenic portion, where even novice canoeists can paddle past 200-foot-high chalky white cliffs, sprawling cottonwoods, bald eagles, and beavers. Of the river, this region is about subtle beauty, from the rolling grasslands to charming towns right out of the Old West.
Lewis and Clark Trip
RETRACE THE PATH of Lewis and Clark, and parallel two mighty rivers—the Missouri and the Yellowstone—on a five-day loop around the state’s northeastern badlands and spacious plains. This route-less-traveled crosses the Fort Peck Indian Reservation and passes through lands where dinosaurs once roamed.
State Parks Trip
Sure, Montana is most famous for being home to Glacier National Park (and for being the Gateway to Yellowstone, too!) but just because you can visit National Parks here doesn't mean the state parks are any less awesome. From unique wildlife and stunning scenery to historic caves and rugged hikes, you'll find that Montana has some really awesome state parks that are unlike anything you've ever experienced.
