Information for Travelers
Montana is a western state defined by its diverse terrain, ranging from the Rocky Mountains to the Great Plains.
Its wide open spaces include Glacier National Park, a vast nature reserve that spans Canada.
The park's many snow-capped peaks, lakes and alpine hiking trails are showcased along its famous 80km Going-to-the-Sun road.
Whether you're visiting Montana for the first time or you're a long-time resident of the state, Big Sky Country offers unique landscapes found in few places in North America.
From glacial lakes to towering structures still seen in mining towns, Montana has a distinct flavor that is only experienced per visit.
But visitor beware, once a taste of Montana's wild adventure and open spaces arrives, it's hard to live anywhere else.
Mountain scenery defines much of Montana, especially the western half, where the Continental Divide juts out with the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains.
This rugged region has several desirable places to visit, including the world famous Glacier National Park, also known as the Crown of the Continent.
But the glacier is just the tip of Montana's adventures.
The state is also home to some of the country's most extensive wilderness areas and millions of hectares of national forest.
And among these great open spaces, several notable western cities, such as Missoula and Bozeman, beckon with other cultural offerings.
