A 100-mile scenic drive.

Reviewed By Perry W - Queensland, Australia

I was advised of this section of highway by a friend, and I'm so glad we took the time to ride this amazing section of road. The scenery and wildlife are spectacular, with the road surface almost excellent for the entire 100 miles or so. Highly recommended for any type of motorcycle enthusiast, a must do ride.

"We Built a Brewery" Since the very first step we took on this new adventure...our intent was undoubtedly simple! Keep our clients and community needs the utmost priority. We absolutely knew that we could only throw the stone in the river as far as our support would allow us.

A Carousel for Missoula

This beautiful carousel, completed in 1995, was the brainchild and vision of a local Missoula cabinet-maker, who carved much of the structure himself and also trained an enthusiastic team of volunteers to assist in the project.

Reviewed By lisajoyw - Falmouth, Maine

Each year for the last three years when I've visited my grandchild in Missoula, we've gone on the Carousel. It's a super fast ride, so exhilarating. Buckle up. The horses are beautiful, and we usually go around two or three times. My grandson is turning three. I'm a LOT older and still love it. Plenty of fun things to look at as the area is enclosed and there's a gift shop with snacks that comes in handy after the ride, and an excellent outdoor wooden castle play area with jungle gym right next door. The Carousel is inexpensive, so an excellent family treasure to donate to.

This was the third time I visited this park. It has great unrealized potential. The recent changes in the visitor center were disappointing, it's not as informative as it once was.

Three visits to Missoula and three to the Elk Foundation. It's a great place to take small children as there is much stuffed wildlife to see and hands-on audio exhibits of nature sounds that little ones love. Don't miss this free family experience and don't forget to donate!

University of Montana

This scenic university campus spans 200 acres at the base of a mountain and borders the Clark Fork River. Founded in 1893, Montana's leading liberal arts institution enrolls 13,000 students.

Reviewed By tj113 - Stevensville

Love the football games, but they need a winning team to keep my interest. The tailgates have gotten worse and need more warming tents for cold weather. I liked it better when there were more businesses with free food and a few beers. Cutting off beer when the game starts and before and after halftime helps. Keep the party going but don't get too greedy with the prices.
Need to do a better job of keeping transients off the walkways and bridges impeding the walking traffic. The smokers that light up in the tailgate area and the minute you exit the stadium are very annoying and make it difficult to breath.

Columbia River & Snake River Cruise - American Cruise Lines "American Pride"
We have finished a most excellent river cruise, what made this even better was the History Talks given by Todd Weber, a self taught history presenter. His talks inspired us to take the trip along the mostly forgotten, Lewis & Clark Byway, in effect following US-12, we did Clarkston WA to Montana, stopping at many of the "Historical Markers".
By far the most interesting part of their journey was crossing the Great Divide in 1805 at Lolo Pass 5233 ft. elevation on the border of Idaho and Montana on Hwy 12, when we crossed, there was open roadway with 3 ft. high snow drifts surrounding the closed (May 6) visitor center.
Truly an inspiring story, about some US history, that is barely mentioned in Australian history school texts

Caras Park

This scenic downtown park on the banks of the Clark Fork River is the home of the popular Missoula carousel and a great place for a family outing, with a large jungle gym, walking and bike paths, frequent special events and concerts.

Reviewed By Alverda3 - Spokane, Washington

This is not an overly big park, but there's enough going on to make a visit worthwhile. While we were in Missoula for the weekend, we visited the park for bands, food trucks and a farmer's market. The park is next to the river which offers a nice view of water activities.
