If there’s any complaints people have about Montana living, it’s that Montana can be a remote place. Montana’s airports are spread few and far between, and most of them are pretty small. And by road, even places in the state can be a 10 hour drive away.

The trip to Montana may be long, but it'll be worth it.

This is what lends Montana part of its mystique, that it’s far away from everything. But, when you want to travel here, it can get frustrating. Luckily, we have Billings.

This Montana city has a couple things that travelers will love. First, the Billings airport. It’s possibly the most reasonably priced airport in Montana, with flights from the most cities.

You’ll find Billings hotels are world class and cozy, perfect places to relax during your vacation, or spend a night before traveling deepr into Montana. It’s also got a wide variety of great restaurants, museums, theaters, breweries and other things to do.

Not far from Billings, you’ll find Yellowstone National Park, Red Lodge ski resort, and many other Montana attractions. Great fishing, hiking, hunting, snowmobiling and skiing are all just a short trip away from Billings.

Some highlights in the town of Billings include the Yellowstone Art Museum founded in 1964 and recently treated to a $6.2 million expansion. The Moss Museum was built in 1903 out of red sandstone. It’s not, as it’s name might suggest, dedicated to mosses, but to the Moss family, which originally built the home. Inside you’ll find an amazing early Montana mansion, with fascinating antiques. Designed by architect Henry Janeway Hardenberg, the Moss home is listed in the National Register of Historical Places.

There’s much more to do both in Billings, and in the country surrounding it, but this should at least get you started. Enjoy your Montana vacation.
