We have family in Missoula and like going. We were there last week and took a nice walk along g the river before sunset. Took some beautiful pictures. I couldn't have left Missoula without going there. Just wish we weren't 2500 miles from there.

This is a centerpiece of Missoula. Great venues play here. Watch folks play on Brendans wave while you visit, snack or enjoy Missoula.

One of my favorite places in Missoula. Run into some festival there. A lot of families with kids. Pets friendly. Everybody seems to be so happy there, especially during hot summer day.
