10 Must See Attractions in Montana
The Beauty of Yellowstone
Yellowstone National Park
Yellowstone Park is the first National Park in the United States and it covers 2,219,791 total acres. The park has a museum, visitor center, camping, fishing and in the winter time, snow mobile tours. For part of the tour you can rent donkeys to take you on the winding slopes of Yellowstone.
This park is an outdoor lovers dream. It is world famous and I can see why. Be sure to bring the cameras, video recorders and if you paint, wow, what a back drop!
When camping at Yellowstone, bring your frisbee and you can toss it around while at your campsite (if possible).

Fishing in Paradise Valley
Paradise Valley is located in Park County, Montana. It is a river valley that flows from the Yellowstone River. Paradise Valley is home to several hot springs but, it is most famous for fly fishing. Fly fisherman come from all over to fish here. You can also fish from the bank or fish from a boat. The scenery is very beautiful here.
In addition to fly fishing, there are different types of fish here and even a beginner, can catch a fish here which, makes it more fun especially for the kids.

Big Sky Resort
Big Sky Resort, located in Madison County, Montana, has 5,800 acres and over 250 ski runs and 30 ski lifts are in use all the time and the view is spectacular to say the least.
If you are not a pro, there are easier ski slopes to ski down.
For your overnight lodging, check out the furnished cabins and most of them include a hot tub. One thing all of the cabins possess is an awesome view of the countryside.
There are multiple retail shops and a restaurant on site.
Fun in the Sun
Electric City Water Park
The Electric City Water Park is located in Great Falls, Montana and it is famous for having the state's largest outdoor, heated pool. It also has flow rider (my favorite) which allows you to surf in a safe way.
A children's play area, lazy river and two huge slides round out the rides. There's a place where you can lay out on the beach and get a tan. You can also eat and drink while you are here. There are lots of lounge chairs for soaking up the sun and relaxing with a good book.
They have a gift shop with lots of souvenirs.

Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park is simply put, beautiful. Tours include wooden boat lake tours and 1930's auto tours that take patrons by land. The ultimate place to visit for hikers and campers for sure.
Pictures taken in this area do not do this place justice. The natural beauty of this area is breathtaking. If you are fortunate to be able to camp here, light a fire and just enjoy the night sky.
The glaciers make great pictures and they can be made into gifts later. You can use these photos to go on different objects like a coffee mug, a shirt or a mouse pad.
