Experience Helena

The Helena Experience—it means something different for every person. The town perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the west, serving as the ultimate backdrop for adventure. But the adventure itself is completely up to you. In search of a pulse-pounding encounter with nature? There are 75 miles of nearby trails waiting to be explored or biked – and those are just the ones that start downtown. Maybe you’re a student of culture, eager for any opportunity to absorb some history?  All across town, you’ll come across historic roots that reach back hundreds of years – from Carroll College, to the Mansion District, to the Montana State Capitol building. And if you’re looking for a total escape, a chance to make a complete break from the concrete and steel? You’ll be within driving distance of two of America’s most breathtaking National Parks. Catch a fish, drink a beer, and listen to some great live music. Helena was founded by those who wanted to write their own story. And now, we believe you should be able to do the same.

So plan a trip today. We’re excited to have you!
