Billings, the Treasure State’s largest city, is located in the Yellowstone River valley and is surrounded by distinctive cliffs and rock formations known as the Rimrocks. This is truly Big Sky Country with distant vistas of the Beartooth, Pryor and Crazy mountains creating panoramas above the sweeping plains. Billings is Montana’s trailhead and serves as a gateway to Yellowstone National Park, Little Bighorn National Battlefield, Pompey’s Pillar National Monument, world renowned trout fishing on the Bighorn River, and numerous other nearby attractions.

Founded in 1882, Billings has grown to be the commercial, educational and medical center for much of Montana and the surrounding region. It is a cultural hub for performing arts and museums and the home of Zoo Montana, the historic Moss Mansion and an abundance of shopping.
