You can see it in the smooth, worn streets, the billboard images ghosted on brick hotels, the headframes that mark entry into what was once the “Richest Hill on Earth.” It’s no surprise, then, that the town’s vintage architecture and colorful past are often what draw people to visit. Yet once they turn off I-90 and into town, visitors quickly discover that Butte isn’t just the brick and mortar of old buildings.
Butte has wonderful hotels, great restaurants, spirited night spots, unique places to visit and a countryside all of Montana envies.
Countryside provides a wealth of outdoor opportunities. As a small city nestled in the Rocky Mountains along the Continental Divide, Butte serves as a springboard to almost 4 million acres of state and federal public land.
