Great Falls is Montana’s second largest city offering many lodging, dining and entertainment options. It wonderfully blends the charm of a small town with all the comforts of a larger city. We want to share our history and attractions with your group and would be happy to help you plan a tour or convention in our area, complete with living history demonstrations and buffalo barbecues. Best of all, our friendly, western hospitality will enhance your stay and make you feel right at home. Please call our Chamber of Commerce at 406-761-4434. We’d love to help!

WINTER: Play in the snow or glide across the ice. Great Falls offers cross-country skiing, ice skating, hockey, sledding, and snowboarding. Mosey on over to the State Fairgrounds and watch pro rodeo contestants pit themselves against Montana’s finest rodeo stock. Or get into the holiday spirit with Christmas Collection Arts and Crafts and the Christmas Stroll.

SPRING: Take advantage of this gorgeous season by hiking and fishing. In the evening plan a scenic drive, pack a picnic, and go stargazing with the Central Montana Astronomy Society. And there are always opportunities to shop downtown, or check out gun and antique shows, craft shows, and western art.

SUMMER: Rise with the sun and take in the fresh sights and smells at the Farmer’s Market. Enjoy leisurely summer afternoons and evenings on art strolls, a Garden Walk, or try a Taste of Great Falls and watch Shakespeare in the Park. For a little more fast-paced fun why not boating, water skiing, the annual jazz festival, or a few horse races? Summer also signals the Lewis & Clark Festival, and the Montana State Fair.

FALL: Autumn in Great Falls means early morning frost and colors of the harvest. Sway to the music of the best blues artists while you enjoy great food and local microbrews at Blues and Brews. If wine tasting is more your style, attend The Art of Wine, held at the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art, with hors d'oeuvres and music while you explore the museum’s exhibits.

Great Falls is conveniently located between America’s two premier national parks -- Glacier National Park, 160 miles northwest and Yellowstone National Park, 265 miles south of Great Falls. Enjoy the extraordinary sights and sounds that so thrilled and inspired Lewis and Clark on their expedition and Charles M. Russell, America’s Cowboy Artist. History will come alive as you enjoy the Great Falls of the Missouri, Giant Springs, the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center, the C.M. Russell Museum, and the Ulm Pishkun Buffalo Jump Visitor Center. All of this is set against a backdrop of fine restaurants, hotels, casinos, city parks, and shopping malls, which make Great Falls an ideal place to visit.
