My Itchy Travel Feet | The Baby Boomer's Guide To Travel

Have you been to Helena?

2012/07/08by Donna Hull

Alan and I are headed out on another boomer road trip. Where are we going? We’ll be exploring Helena, Montana. It’s not quite in our backyard, but almost. The good folks at the Helena Tourism Business Improvement District have invited us to discover their region of Big Sky Country. We’re excited to be out exploring again and marking another big checkmark off our boomer bucket list—fly fishing.

Where will we stay in Helena?

What will we be doing in Helena?

And, ride the Great Northern Carousel, check out the Exploration Works Museum of Science & Culture and visit the State Capitol Building, Original Governor’s Mansion and Cathedral of St. Helena. Whew!

And of course we’ll discover the city’s nightlife with visits to Alive@Five and performances by Plena Libre at the Myrna Loy Center and Shakespeare at the Civic Center.

Which restaurants will we try in Helena?

And, you know us, we’ll be looking for a driving adventure on the way to all of this fun. Look for a report about our drive on Forest Road 200.

While on our trip, we’ll be posting daily photos and remarks at the My Itchy Travel Feet page on Facebook, Twitter and on our Exploring Montana Pinterest board. Be sure to follow us. You don’t want to miss any of the fun!

Do you have any tips for visiting Helena, Montana? Be sure to let us know by posting a comment. Alan and I just might take your advice.
