When planning to visit Missoula, the most common thing that comes to mind is the exquisite natural beauty found at every turn. From waking up in the morning amongst the Ponderosa Pines on our luxurious mountainside, to walking the streets of downtown Missoula, it is, quite simply, stunningly beautiful here. With the abundant natural resources enjoyed by Missoulians, it is no wonder that many of the top activities to enjoy here involve the great outdoors. Though the outdoor recreation is hard to beat and is a must-do on anyone’s itinerary while here, there are some definite additions we urge you to consider. If we were to narrow the reasons to visit Missoula down to three simple things, it would be, of course, the year-round access to outdoor adventure, the wonderful craft beer and distilleries, and the eclectic, vibrant culture known to locals. Book your stay at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast, and explore the best parts of Missoula for yourself.
Why Visit Missoula?
We talk about nature a lot, and for good reason. In 2011, the beautiful town of Missoula was named “The Next Big Thing” by Outside Magazine, and we have done nothing but improve since then. Missoula is surrounded by exceptional beauty and unbeatable opportunities to explore Montana’s abundant wilderness. Missoula is nestled in the Northern Rocky Mountains of Montana, and is surrounded by seven wilderness areas and the confluence of three rivers. All of this nature gives you unparalleled access to a variety of outdoor recreation, including kayaking, boating, hiking, biking, fishing, birding, skiing, snowshoeing, and so much more.
When you finally stop reveling at the beauty that is Missoula, you’re bound to notice the fun, vibrant, and at times eclectic culture that is the undercurrent to Missoula. Missoula is home to three distinct shopping districts, where you’ll find a great variety of Boutiques and galleries offering clothing, gifts, jewelry and more. More than that, Missoula is one of Montana’s top cultural hubs, filled with events as diverse as the symphony, theatre, opera and roller derby. History enthusiasts could easily dedicate an entire day to exploring Missoula’s early prospecting history during the country’s westward expansion at local museums, while art lovers could spend days browsing the Missoula Art Museum and local galleries. If neither of those are for you, the list of attractions and events in Missoula is enough to keep you entertained for weeks. Whatever you choose to do when you visit Missoula this year, don’t forget to sit back and enjoy a delicious, cold pint of freshly brewed craft beer, or an artfully crafted cocktail at one of our local distilleries. Montana ranks #2 in the nation for craft breweries per capita, so whatever it is you do while here, you certainly won’t go thirsty. Book your room at our Montana Bed and Breakfast today, and make this year the year you discover Missoula.
