Seeley Lake is just a few minutes from Missoula, and Flathead Lake accessible within an hour-ish of downtown Missoula.  Both offer great ways to beat the heat this summer, and stay cool.  Swim, and relax enjoying the crystal clear waters of both lakes in Western Montana.

3. Bonner Park

 
There is something different about Bonner Park in Missoula, and that is the Bonner Park Spray Deck.  Enjoy the shaded sitting areas, the open grassy area for picnics and games with the kids, the playground equipment and the spray deck perfect for staying cool in Missoula this summer.

4. Head to the River

  
Missoula seems to attract rivers like a fish to a fly, but we aren’t complaining.  Missoula is at the confluence of three rivers, which makes the river an ideal place to cool off.
