We might need to figure out the destination of an attraction because some folks might beg to differ.

Who doesn't love checking out a historical attraction?

Montana might not have the flashiest attractions like theme parks or professional sports teams, but Big Sky Country has some incredible places to visit.

Most of Montana's attractions are pieces of history that display what life was like during the Wild West and the early years of statehood. These attractions range from ghost towns to underground tunnels to battlefields.

Yeah, that is very confusing as an attraction.

Stevensville was built in 1841 and is known as the first settlement. St. Mary's Mission was the first church constructed in Big Sky Country.

Do we count Stevensville as an attraction? It has a deep history with Montana, but it's a thriving town.

Virginia City makes more sense as an attraction. It's an old west town that comes alive during the summer. They have haunted hotels, the oldest bar in Montana, and more activities for folks to enjoy.

Do you consider a town or city an attraction? That's the real question.
