Local Attractions

Boothill Cemetery, Black Otter Trail & Yellowstone Kelly's Grave

Historical landmark
Boothill Cemetery is a genuine Western legend and a place rich in history. Be sure to read stories of Sacrifice Cliffs (seen to the south) and of "Muggins" Taylor, the scout who carried the news of Custer's Last Stand to the world, who is buried here. Black Otter Trail provides an excellent view of the city. Bike, walk or drive approximately 3 miles around historic Kelly Mountain. Black Otter Trail was an original wagon trail and is steeped in Native folklore. Stop by Yellowstone Kelly's Grave as you near the end of Black Otter Trail. Known for hunting, trapping, and for hostile encounters with Sioux warriors, Yellowstone Kelly (1849-1928) was truly a man of the frontier. Kelly requested that he be laid to rest in Montana before he died.

New in 2020 - meet ZooMontana's newest residents including a sloth who was, you guessed it, slow moving into his new home. And, meet Bert the Bison! Bert came to ZooMontana in 2018 after suffering a broken leg. Although healed, a limp kept him from the wild as it would have hindered his ability to evade predators. Bert is another great example of the rescue work focus of ZooMontana. With over 70-acres, the zoo is home to both native and non-native species, specializing in northern-latitude animals. Visitors can admire animals in a natural setting, housed in state-of-the-art exhibits. Major exhibits include Amur Tigers, River Otters, Grizzly Bear, Big Horn Sheep, Wolverine, Grey Wolves, Red Pandas, Sika Deer, Bald Eagle, Pygmy Marmoset, and a turn of the century homestead stead house and barn. Visitors can also enjoy the Sensory Garden, one of many botanical gardens located at ZooMontana.

Riverfront Park

Riverfront Park is a historic site that features horseshoes, jogging trails, picnic sites/shelters, and natural areas that are underdeveloped. This is a day use area where fishing and swimming may be enjoyed on the river.
