Tucked away in the heart of the northern Rocky Mountains, Missoula is the perfect spot for a weekend of history, culture and outdoor fun. Home to the University of Montana, one of the country's most architecturally distinguished academic institutions, the city offers a number of intellectually stimulating attractions. Spend a few hours browsing through the exhibits at the Art Museum of Missoula or take a trip back in time at the Historical Museum at Fort Missoula. The city's proximity to three major rivers and acres of lush forest means that visitors can also enjoy a host of activities, from fly fishing and kayaking to hiking and cycling. Missoula's historic downtown area has classic early 20th-century buildings and boasts unique shops, galleries, fine dining and a lively nightlife. If you've got children with you, don't miss Dragon Hollow, a magical playground that features an extraordinary hand-carved carousel.
