Visit Montana’s Natural Historic Places

Visit Montana’s Natural Historic Places

Montana is home to 10 National parks, monuments, trails, battlefields, and historic sites. Yellowstone and Glacier are best known but others throughout the state give you a rich look at history and natural ecosystems. The park system allows us to experience and view the natural landscape, as well as the abundant wildlife.

There are 54 State Parks throughout Montana connecting you to nature, water sports, and to history. From the wonder of the Lewis and Clark Caverns to Ghost Towns and recreation areas, there are plenty of places to explore the wonders of Montana.

After a day of exploring in the park, head on home to your favorite B&B, share your stories, and enjoy the warm hospitality of Montana.
