How to Holiday at Home in Missoula

The most beautiful thing about Missoula is the landscape, so get out there and explore it!

We’re very lucky that Missoula is such a beautiful place to live, yet so many of us immediately head straight to airline sites when it rolls around to vacation time. Instead, it might be a fun idea to try a ‘holiday at home’ this year. It’s amazing all of the things that are right on our doorsteps that we just never took the time to realise. We’ve put together an example itinerary of some of the things you could try in Missoula, but use our website to do a little searching and you’ll be amazed at what you can find.

It’s Not a Holiday Without a Hotel

If you’re looking for a budget option, then staying in your own house is absolutely fine. Plus, it kind of makes sense as you’ll be on your home territory anyway. However, if you want to go all out on your Missoula break, then there’s one particularly great choice. The Hilton Garden Inn has super spacious sweets, that are surprisingly affordable considering the size and the views. As well as that, they allow you to bring your furry friends too, so even the family pooch can enjoy a vacation with you all. Those who enjoy casino games should be sure to check out the casino at the Hilton. Many of us aren’t able to play poker online as it isn’t yet legal in the state of Montana, so a stay here is a good opportunity to flex those card playing skills. Once you’ve enjoyed all that your room and the casino have to offer, you can make your way down to the stunning bar and restaurant, to enjoy hearty food served in a rustic lodge style interior.

Burn Off That Meal

One of the most special things about Missoula is its beautiful landscape. As anyone who lives here will know, there are miles and miles of unspoilt forest and mountain to explore. We’ve got guides on all kinds of outdoor pursuits, from mountain biking to hiking, so it’s easy for you to find an outdoorsy pursuit that you can all enjoy. Some of the hiking trails are seriously challenging and will require you to have a good level of fitness and plenty of hiking experience, others can be completed in a couple of hours and will still let you see plenty of the natural beauty that this area has to offer.

Experience Some High Culture

Now that you’ve let off some steam in the great outdoors, it’s time to enjoy the town of Missoula itself. The Missoula Art Museum is an unassuming building, so you would be forgiven for having walked straight past before. What you would never expect is the incredible collection of contemporary art that they keep inside. Even better, all of it is created by local artists, so it really is an excuse to get to know your neighbors a bit better! Take your time to ponder the exhibits, you’ll be amazed at some of the thought provoking works of art that are on display.
