Destination guide

Livingston, I presume

More than the backdrop against which a young Jeff Bridges portrayed cattle rustler Jack McKee in Rancho Deluxe – surprisingly watchable in its own right – Livingston is a bustling, low-key destination that’s famous for its lively downtown, colorful Old West history, and dramatic mountain scenery. A little more than an hour north of Yellowstone National Park, Livingston is equally popular in the spring, summer, fall, and winter. Your Livingston vacation rental will put you within easy reach of the region’s mountain peaks, fishing spots, and local history museums.

Things to do

Livingston – when nature calls

Less than 60 miles from the northern entrance to Yellowstone National Park, a visit to the preserve is a must. The the scenic 3,400-square-mile park boasts waterfalls and canyons along the Yellowstone River, as well as lush forests, craggy peaks, and some of the most active geothermal features in the world. Closer to town, you’ll discover local history at the Yellowstone Gateway Museum and the Livingston Depot Center. The riverside Sacajawea Park, which briefly played host to the Lewis and Clark Expedition in 1806, is a hub for farmer’s markets, concerts, and seasonal events.

The river is a popular destination for fly fishing thanks to its booming trout population, and you can still pan for gold along much of its length.

A popular destination for nature lovers, it’s home to herds of bison and elk, as well as grizzly bears and wolves.
