Welcome
Hello
to
Southwestern Montana
friends
Area Chambers of Commerce welcome you to Beaverhead and Madison counties. If you're looking for a perfect vacation spot, you've found it. Fishing, hunting, boating, hiking, historical sites and architecture, museums, campgrounds, wildlife, motels and restaurants--there's plenty to see and do. If you're looking for a home, this is the place as well. Quality schools, world-class recreational opportunities, cultural activities, entertainment and that great small town feeling abounds. A major portion of these counties continue to harbor ghost towns, mining camps and, of course, the historic Lewis & Clark Trail of western exploration and discovery to add to the western feel. Nowhere is the history of the Old West more vividly retained than here in the rugged wonderland of southwestern Montana. Whether you're here for a few weeks or for a lifetime, you'll find that a southwestern Montana welcome is the genuine article.
