Hanging out by the River
Favorite thing: I don't live in Missoula anymore, but I lived there long enough to give some advice. And, I do still go back from time to time to visit my family that still lives there.
I would bring someone who has never been to Missoula to "Lunch in the Park" at Caras Park in downtown Missoula by the river.
Lunch in the Park was always my favorite thing, they have tons of different food vendors, great music, people everywhere, it is just an all around good time and a great excuse to eat lots of food!
Fondest memory: Missoula has a few unique shops in its downtown area which I miss and can't really find anything quite like them where I live now.
They are Butterfly Herbs and Bagels on Broadway. Also my favorite deli in downtown Missoula is Worden's Market. Fabulous food, beer and you can sit in there and eat and watch life go by outside. It's great.
- Family Travel
Oldest Church in Area
Favorite thing: Sightseeing
Fondest memory: The history. For example, just steps away from the Country Courthouse is the oldest church in this area. I could not get a good shot of it because it was too congested with buildings and trees around it.
Boone and Crockett Headquarters
Fondest memory: This is Missoula's old Depot. It has been turned into many things, one of which is the Headquarters for the Boone and Crockett Organization. Boone and Crockett maintains the records of trophy kills. Entrance is to the right of the top tier of the pedestal with the grizzly bear.
On The Grounds Of Old Fort Missoula
Favorite thing: The Old Fort and grounds of Fort Missoula 18-77-1947 are an excellent place for a family OR couple to spend the day or afternoon.
Fondest memory: Eating at Shadows Keep
- Hiking and Walking
Follow the Zig Zag For A View
Fondest memory: This big "M" is located on a hill immediately behind the University of Montana. If you follow this zig zag trail, you will be rewarded with a spectacular view.
Example of Local Artist's Paintings
Favorite thing: This probably is either alluding to the great fire in Yellowstone in the late 80s OR the fact that Missoula is the home of the fire jumpers.
One More Excellent Painting From A Local Artist
Favorite thing: I had the pleasure of seeing these mountain goats up close and personal while in Glacier National Park.
