Montana is known as the Treasure State in reference to the important role mining plays in the state, but there is much more treasure here than what lies in the mines. There are a number of national parks that travelers can enjoy. There are also Native American reservations that where you can learn the culture and traditions of Native American cultures. And for the beer lovers there are two microbreweries that are definite must sees in the Montana area. And how are you to take all of it in? Try taking a Montana charter bus service.
Glacier National Park
There are about 1,000,000 acres of forest, alpine meadows, and lakes protected by Glacier National Park. The National Park Service claims that there are over 70 species of mammals and 260 species of birds. There are 700 miles of maintained trails and 350 structures that are part of the National Register of Historic Sites and six National Historic Landmarks. Enjoy this beautiful park from the comfort of a Montana charter bus.
Yellowstone National Park
While Yellowstone is spread out over the states of Idaho and Wyoming, there is also a good part of it in Montana. Yellowstone was named the first national park. The park offers some of the most interesting wonders such as Old Faithful, which "gives evidence of one of the world's largest active volcanoes” according to the National Park Service. Expeditions to the area occurred as early as 1871, and in 1872, President Grant declared Yellowstone "set apart as a public park or pleasuring ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people.” Use a charter bus service. Rest your legs and leave the driving to someone else!
Museum of the Rockies
There is tons of stuff to see and do at the Museum of the Rockies. The museum offers ways for visitors to fully understand Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, or the Beartooth and Bridger Mountains. Some of the exhibits include the "One Day 80 Million Years Ago,” "Bowman Fossil Bank,” "Enduring Peoples: Native Cultures of the Northern Rockies and Plains,” Montana on the Move,” and "The Martin Discovery Room.” These exhibits truly reflect the natural wonders of the western United States. Let a charter bus service take you to the museum and be ready to learn.
Montana Indian Nations
There are several Native American reservations that you can enjoy. Learn the culture of Native American tribes including the Blackfeet, Crow, Flathead, Fort Peck, Fort Belknap, Little Shell, and Northern Cheyenne. You can learn the traditional dress and rituals, arts and crafts that the Montana Native Americans created and performed. There is the Crow Fair and Rodeo, the Arlee Fourth of July Celebration, the Blackfeet Nation's North American Indian Days, the Red Bottom Celebration, and the Northern Cheyenne's Fourth of July Powwow. You can even stay in the accommodations provided by the Montana Native Americans.
There are several small brewing companies in the Montana area. Two of these include the Flathead Lake Brewing Company and the Wolf Pack Brewing Company, LLC.
