Named after the Spanish word montaña or mountain, today Montana is popularly known as Big Sky Country for its incredible vistas still reminiscent of the Old West.
Wild West history also still factors big in the tourism industry. Especially at an infamous
military location where, in 1876, General
George Custer and 200 of his men were slaughtered by Lakota and Cheyenne warriors at the Battle of Little
the Little Big Horn battlefield, the region continues to offer
visitors a taste of the old Montana plains, as well as crystal clear mountains lakes, pristine forests, and more untouched natural beauty that Montana remains famous for:
Other top Montana attractions include the stunningly scenic Beartooth All American Road along US Highway 212 stretching for 70 miles of scenic overlooks beginning at Red Lodge, MT to the Cooke City entrance to Yellowstone National Park (don't forget the camera!)
Or, leave daylight behind with a descent into mysterious and majestic stalactites and stalagmites with a tour of Lewis & Clark Caverns at Lewis & Clark State Park.
