In a nutshell
You must visit Livingston
Yellowstone National Park
Livingston is the Northern Gateway to Yellowstone National Park. I am working on an extensive page on the park. It was the first national park, established in 1872 and is a must see!
Honor the Military
One of the really nice things I noticed in Livingston was how they posted pictures of local members of the military on the trees in Sacajawea Park with yellow ribbons tied around them.
There was a park in the main downtown area dedicated to Sacajawea the Indian guide for the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Sacajawea Park is a nice place to have a picnic or just relax and enjoy nature.
Lewis and Clark
Captain Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition came through the Livingston area on 15 July 1806 on the return route from his 1804-1806 expedition to find an overland route to the Pacific.
Livingston has a nice historic district with several buildings of historic and architectural interest. Many of the town's streets are lined with trees and look quite pretty when the fall colors come.

Summer time, float the river..A guided tour or rent your own raft..This is a favorite for the locals..All summer you can witness a few types of floaters..The local fly fishing guide, the local thirty-somethings floating and drinking, and families as well.
Main Street Livingston
The art galleries and restaurants are a full day's activities. You can start in the late morning, and still have time to fish the Yellowstone River in the late afternoon until dark.

Montana's Rib and Chop House: Great Steak!
This is one of Livingson's "must-dos" according to many people. It's got an amazing reputation - especially for steak and ribs, but the prices are relatively reasonable. There's a bar area as well as plenty of dining room seating.
The soups are fantastic, the beers cold and...
2nd Street Bistro: Livingstons Favorite!
