Destinations / North America

When you think of cities you need to see in the United States, Billings, Montana, probably isn’t at the top of that list. The city has plenty to see and do cheaply, however; and is well worth visiting.

Start your day at Montana Jack’s. One of the local favorites, Montana Jack’s offers everything you could want for breakfast, from omelets to other griddle classics. An omelet includes toast or pancakes and hash browns or fruit. Spend less than $10 on an omelet and get ready for a day of exploration.


After breakfast, it is time for a hike to see some pictographs. Pictograph State Park is only five miles from Billings. The park spans 23 miles and includes trails leading to the caves previously home to prehistoric hunters. This is an excellent spot to get some natural history while hiking. It is free to get into the park.


After working up an appetite, head to Red Rooster Café. The lunch menu includes a number of great sandwiches and salads. You can sate any appetite you might have, from salmon to a veggie club. Expect to spend less than $20 on lunch.


We are going to get more engrossed with history after lunch. The Moss Mansion Museum is a significant turn-of-the-century home. It would go on to greatly influence Billing’s culture. Admission is $12.


For dinner, hit stacked. This restaurant has everything you could need or want after a full day of exploring. Check out the fish and poultry offerings or consider a burger to satisfy your hunger.


Billings is Montana’s biggest city, with more than 100,000 residents. Don’t let the small population put you off of its fun and history.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
