Summer Concerts in Billings
If the warmest season of the year is good for anything, it’s for live music and performances at outdoor venues. Billings is a sweet spot for music lovers everywhere, as it offers a variety of impressive summer concert outdoor venues, each with its own rotating lineup of locally and nationally recognized headliners. If you lend an ear to the local entertainment scene here this summer, be sure to seek out the sounds of Josephine Crossing Summer Concerts, St. John’s Summer Concert Series, Alive After 5, Zoo Montana concerts, and Red Oxx Events Lawn.
Experience The Walkable Brewery District
For anyone seeking a new kind of nightlife — or day-drinking — experience, Billings has a surefire way to satisfy your cravings: start by taking a stroll through its Walkable Brewery District! Here, you’ll find dozens of summer-suitable patios and beer gardens with some of the city’s best local distilleries and microbreweries. If those are a bit too hoppy or strong for your taste, there’s even a cider house to quench your thirst as well. So let your hair down and raise your spirits — just please wander responsibly!
Take On A Trail To A New Adventure
The state of Montana as a whole is known for its beautiful “big sky,” renowned rivers, and majestic mountainscapes, but Billings by itself is a particularly great place to find your next outdoor adventure. Not only is the area known as a bike-friendly and walker-welcoming city with nearly 30 miles of paved and unpaved trails, but it’s just a short drive (full of spectacular views) away from the magnificent gateway to Yellowstone National Park. When visiting Billings in the summer, take time to get out in nature and experience all the beauty there is to see. If you plan to trek any trails or do some exploring, be sure to take advantage of the cool mornings and crisp sunset hours of the season, as these times of day have the ideal temperature for hiking, biking, bouldering, and more.
Keep The Kids Roaring With Laughter At ZooMontana
Traveling with children can be difficult, even at the best of times — but there are certainly some future “best times” to be had for family vacations in Billings when the itinerary involves a trip to ZooMontana! Comprising 70 acres, this sprawling zoo is a wildlife sanctuary for hundreds of exotic and awe-inspiring animal species, including red pandas, African lions, and even a free-flight aviary where you can watch birds from all over the world spread their wings. The entire family is sure to find a new favorite critter here, so if you’re traveling to Billings with children — or even if you just have an affinity for animals — be sure to zoom on over to ZooMontana while you’re there.
Enjoy An Array of Arts & Culture
Billings has a rich history infused with both Native American and Western culture. From numerous local art galleries to yearly events such as the Annual Crow Fair Celebration Powwow & Rodeo, there’s always something unique and creative to take hold of while you’re here. The arts scene isn’t limited to present-day appeal alone — take an insightful trip “back in time” when you visit the Pictograph Cave State Park, which features artifacts from prehistoric ages such as hunting spears, early-human cave paintings, and more.
