Great Falls
Anyone with an interest in history and a love of the great outdoors will enjoy a getaway to Great Falls. Steeped in the traditions of the Old West and chock-full of historic buildings and important landmarks, the city itself is a living museum. But there are also real museums to explore. Check out the Lewis & Clark National Trail Interpretive Center which has interactive exhibits and videos that help you retrace the steps of the famous explorers. The C.M. Russell Museum Complex displays the work of the "Cowboy Artist" Charlie Russell. Families will find hours of entertainment at the Children's Museum of Montana. Or walk into the past of the Northern Plains at Ulm Pushkin State Park, where Native Americans used to... more Anyone with an interest in history and a love of the great outdoors will enjoy a getaway to Great Falls.

Or walk into the past of the Northern Plains at Ulm Pushkin State Park, where Native Americans used to stampede buffalo over cliffs. Visitors can also take advantage of a wide array of outdoor recreation opportunities. With a fantastic view of the Missouri River, the 24-mile River's Edge Trail is great for walking, cycling, inline skating or jogging. Bird watchers will enjoy the Benton Lake Wildlife Refuge, and hiking, mountain biking and camping opportunities in nearby mountain ranges offer even more outdoor fun. less
