Montana is larger than life

There's something about Montana and we just can't put our finger on it. Maybe it's the seemingly huge sky, filled with nothing more than piercing blue, or perhaps it's the towering mountains which descend from snowy peaks to forested foothills. For some, the draw must be the mountain lakes and streams, where they can wade in and try to hook a wild trout. For others, we imagine it will be the pretty red-brick historic towns like Bozeman. Whatever your reason for coming to stay in a Montana vacation rental, you can always expect clean mountain air and unlimited opportunities for outdoor fun.

Thrill seekers and day trippers love Montana

It doesn't matter if you're looking for all-guns-blazing activities or something decidedly more sedate, Montana has got you covered. If you're looking to get that heart pumping, you can hop on rafts to ride down the rapids. Alternatively, you can launch kayaks to glide downstream at your own pace. If you rent a mountain bike, you can hurtle down the mountain trails, or alternatively take a calmer hike along the winding paths to the bottom. If you stay in a lakeside Montana vacation rental, you can throw yourself in to splash around and cool off, or kick back on the banks and cast your fishing line in.

Montana's Gold Rush ghost towns

Montana's got more museums that you could shake a stick at. If you haven't seen enough animals out in the wild, you could visit the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center, an NPO which looks after bears and wolves that can't survive in the wild. For a little slice of history, you can head to the Museum of the Rockies, an entertaining attraction which houses, among other discoveries, the largest T-Rex skull found yet. If you're staying in a Montana vacation rental with the kids, try taking them to Garnet, a ghost town that hasn't changed since the Gold Rush days.

Endless blue skies of Montana

For the best chances of sunny weather, visit between July and August, when the skies are almost always endlessly blue. Families with children on school breaks fill up the Montana vacation rentals early, so don't hang on to book. If you have big plans to hike the Montana trails and you don't have kids in tow, you might want to think about visiting in the shoulder months, when the weather is a little cooler and the routes a little emptier. It's a brave soul who drops into the below-freezing Montana winter, but those who do have a vast wilderness of snow to explore.

Tick off your wildlife bucket list in Montana

Spotting the animals that roam the wilds of Montana is simply extraordinary, particularly the bigger beasts. On one day you could be watching herds of bison or buffalo, the next you could be spotting black or grizzly bears. In fact, if you hop on any of the Montana safaris, you're almost guaranteed to spot wild critters. Look out for big horn sheep and goats on the craggy mountains, or the beavers and otters in the woodland streams and rivers. If you listen out at night, you might hear the howl of wolf packs or the call of owls.
