About Missoula

About
Missoula

Missoula, MT. Some might call it unique, cool or hip. Others will experience it as serene, welcoming and replete with natural beauty. You might see it as vibrant, active and pulsating with places to go and things to do. The beauty of Missoula is that it is all these things and more.

Nestled in the Northern Rockies of Montana, surrounded by seven wilderness areas and at the confluence of three rivers, Missoula is an outdoor enthusiast's dream. You can kayak, raft or tube through downtown or take a relaxing hike in 60,000 acres of wilderness minutes from your hotel. Missoula is known for its blue-ribbon trout fishing (made famous by A River Runs Through It) and spectacular natural beauty. The outdoor recreational opportunities are limitless.

Missoula is also a regional destination for shopping and dining, featuring three distinct shopping districts and an abundance of restaurants, cafes, coffee houses and breweries with something to fit all budgets and palates. Known for its eclectic culture, visitors will find this arts and culture hub filled with a seeming endless array of arts and entertainment events. Think symphony, theatre, film festivals, author's readings at independent bookstores, college sports, ballet, opera and roller derby. And we proudly live our history – Native American and Lewis & Clark to Smokejumpers and Glacial Lake Missoula.
