Montana has been on my radar for a long time. I’ve dreamt of fly fishing in Montana, exploring Yellowstone National Park, and hiking in Glacier National Park.

Thankfully, I have Melynda Harrison of TravelingMel and Yellowstone Trips sharing her favoring Montana day trips from Bozeman, bumping this destination closer to the top of my bucket list.

What to Do in Bozeman MT

Some of the best things to do in Bozeman in summer include hiking the trails. Residents and visitors take advantage of the numerous trails that start in town and wind into the Bridger, Gallatin, and Bangtail Mountain Ranges.

What to Do in Yellowstone National Park

Once inside the park, stop at the Boiling River for a soak. There are two front country locations in Yellowstone where you can get into the hot water, and the Boiling River is the best one.

Missouri Headwaters and Lewis and Clark Caverns State Parks

Missouri Headwaters State Park is where the Gallatin, Madison, and Jefferson Rivers come together to form the Missouri River. When the Lewis and Clark Expedition arrived here in 1905, they had to decide which one would lead them to the mountains and eventually the Pacific Ocean.

Take a trip to Montana’s Capital – Helena

Helena, like most of Montana, has a lot of outdoor activities to offer. In summer, hike and bike in the local hills and mountains. Winter brings cross-country skiing, ice skating, and snowmobiling.

Visiting Montana’s Hot Springs

One of the highlights of a visit to Montana is a dip in a hot spring. At Norris Hot Springs you can soak outside, eat local food, and listen to a band from the pool.
