Don’t miss a visit to Missoula

Missoula, tucked away in the heart of the northern Rocky Mountains at the western edge of Montana, is home to the University of Montana, and surrounded by the kind of big Montana vistas other states can only dream of. As well as the university, its associated cultural events, and the Montana Technology Enterprise Center, the city buzzes with cultural events, family-run restaurants, concerts, craft breweries, festivals, and farmers’ markets. Choose a Missoula vacation rental in the historic heart of downtown, or in the beautiful mountain environs, and enjoy a vacation of culture, history, and outdoor fun.

Things to do

Missoula art and history

From your Missoula vacation rental, a walking tour of downtown Missoula will uncover many historic buildings amongst the boutique shops and restaurants. One is the Missoula Museum of Art, set within the old Carnegie Library, and showcasing a wide variety of masterpieces. Art aficionados will also enjoy the University’s Montana Museum of Art and Culture. Meanwhile, history buffs shouldn’t miss the historic Fort Missoula, which evokes the days of the frontier and features railroad machinery and the city’s historical museum. Or, for a more family-friendly excursion, make a trip to Garnet Ghost Town – a fascinating abandoned mining village about 30 miles east of Missoula.

Activities

Winter sports and summer fun in Missoula

Missoula has many miles of trails within the city, while thousands more miles of hiking and biking trails meander across the Missoula and Bitterroot valleys and the nearby Big Mountain and Mission Mountains region. In winter, this area is smothered in a sparkling blanket of white snow, becoming a winter sports paradise for skiers and snowboarders, as well as offering activities such as dog sledding and ice fishing. Missoula’s buzzing independent bars and restaurants, local craft breweries, and wineries make for the perfect après-ski.

Weather

Snowy winters, sunny summers

Missoula enjoys cold and moderately snowy winters. With the Snowbowl ski and snowboard area just minutes from downtown Missoula, the winter powder attracts many winter-sports fans to Missoula vacation rentals during the winter months. More skiing and advanced runs can be found at the Discovery Ski Area, around 90 minutes from town. Missoula summers are typically warm and sunny, with short, crisp springs and falls in between. In summer, the River City Roots Festival attracts many visitors to town each August with a fun and vibrant mix of music, beer, food, and art.

Natural features

The rivers run through Missoula

Missoula sits close to the confluence of three rivers – the Clark Fork, Bitterroot, and Blackfoot – providing great opportunities for rafting, fishing, and other water sports. The crystal-clear waters of nearby Flathead Lake attract kayakers, birdwatchers, and swimmers, drawn by the spectacular mountain vistas around this sparkling stretch of water. Or, travel around an hour north of Missoula to reach the National Bison Range, a wildlife reserve connected to the Mission Mountain Range. It has a visitor center and scenic roads though the buffalo grass and ponderosa pine with viewing areas to spot bison and the other species, such as cayote, black bear, elk, and bighorn sheep, that inhabit the range.
