The Area: Missoula is a city of 64,000 nestled in the Rocky Mountains of western Montana. At 3,200 feet above sea level, the summer evenings are cool and the days sunny and warm. The Garden City marks the confluence of five valleys and is surrounded by the Rattlesnake Wilderness and the Bitterroot and Lolo National Forests; the Clark Fork River flows through downtown and lively trout wait to test the next angler’s line in the nearby Bitterroot and Blackfoot rivers. The University of Montana lends the town its progressive vibe and its 14,000 students give Missoula a youthful pulse year-round. The city is home to more than 100 restaurants; here you can find something to satisfy every palate. Historic downtown provides a unique shopping experience and a wealth of watering holes to quench your thirst after crossing the finish line. Missoula is also a launching point to some of the country’s most breathtaking wild lands: Yellowstone National Park, Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall Wilderness and more.
