Helena, Montana’s capital city, is a fascinating historic gold mining town that touts itself as the “America’s best small arts town” with great architecture, museums, and terrific scenery.

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.
