All the best things you can hope to find in a Montana experience can be found in Missoula. Known as the “Garden City” for its dense trees and lush, green landscape, Missoula is nestled in the heart of the northern Rockies in Western Montana. A cosmopolitan gem set amidst the rugged wilderness, Missoula provides entertainment, shopping, dining, and outdoor recreation opportunities for everyone. Downtown is a center of business, culture, and entertainment. The University of Montana provides conferences, lectures, concerts, performances, and, of course, Grizzly athletics. Art galleries, museums, coffeehouses, a variety of restaurants and shopping venues, community theatre, a symphony, authors, artists, cowboys, and loggers – Missoula has it all. Missoula’s hotels, restaurants, and convention facilities, combined with attractions and events for leisure activities, make meeting planning a pleasure.

WINTER: Winter enthusiasts can choose from diverse cross-country trails, some running right through town, or from the many downhill areas within a short drive from Missoula or from numerous snowmobile trails.

SPRING: Montana’s “Garden City” transforms itself into a panoramic vision. Things look up in the spring in Missoula as the area becomes a major flyaway for migratory birds and waterfowl, and humans begin paragliding off the hills surrounding the city.

SUMMER: Area rivers provide opportunities for fly fishing, floating, whitewater rafting, swimming, and other water activities. Hiking, mountain biking, bird watching, golf, and tennis are popular summer activities. An evening stroll along the Clark Fork, through the heart of downtown, provides a perfect ending to a Missoula day.

FALL: The colorful foliage in Missoula’s University area is breathtaking. More colors are found in the produce at the local Farmer’s Market and in the wildlife, which finds its way back to the city with the changing seasons.

Montana’s most culturally diverse city, Missoula thrives on events and attractions offering bountiful cultural treasures that make this community so unique under the Big Sky. Sporting events, the symphony, live theatre productions, gallery events, museums, public markets, International festivals and fairs offer an abundance of entertaiment throughout the year. Missoula’s diverse attractions such as A Carousel for Missoula, the internationally renowned Missoula Children’s Theatre, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the Aerial Fire Depot and Smokejumper Center provide unique experiences for everyone.
