Billings Hotels

Once a ramshackle frontier town providing an entry to the Wild West beyond, Billings is now the largest city in Montana. It is popular both as an urban destination and as a trailhead, leading out into some of the most magnificent national parkland in the USA, including geyser-spewing Yellowstone. A shelf of mountains looms over the city’s skyscrapers in an apparent race to reach the heavens. It is this blend of urban cool and untamed wilderness which entices people here.

Things to see

At the heart of Billings city center is Skypoint, a modernist sail-like structure which sweeps over the center point. Usually here, traffic thrums down the highway and people shop in the surrounding malls, but throughout the year, Skypoint closes to cars and becomes the focus of major events, whether it’s a music festival or a New Year’s party. To experience some of the history of Billings, visit Moss Mansion, a lavishly decorated historic house. After an informative tour of the house, you can enjoy the gardens, where you can picnic in the shade of an ancient tree. Art lovers should visit the Yellowstone Art Museum, which features exhibits by local modern artists. Here, you can also experience an art auction, whether you take part in the bidding or not. For a family day out, take a trip to Zoo Montana, where children will love seeing their favorite animals up close.
