Livingston, Your year-round Destination

Livingston, Montana surrounded by four wild and beautiful mountain ranges that offer an abundance of outdoor activities year-round. Whether its fly-fishing on the Yellowstone, downhill or cross-country skiing, taking a wild outfitting trip on horseback, river rafting on a famous river or a hike in the most breathtaking, wild and natural place on earth, we have it all here in our diverse, friendly town. We are also a historic community that sits at the northern boundary to Yellowstone National Park. It has long been the “Original Gateway City to Yellowstone National Park,” and we have been evolving & enhancing our community since 1883.

For a relaxing day, visit our historic museums, wander through our many art galleries or sit along the river with a great cup of local coffee and take in the view. You can try playing Golf on the edge of the mighty Yellowstone River or just walk through the late 1800’s history in our downtown historic district. We have great shops and a very diverse local restaurant scene from casual to fine dining or grab an award-winning beer from our downtown breweries.

Our night life is a mix of local and big-name entertainment at the pubs, breweries and many event venues, a live show in one of our two historic live theatres, camp under the star filled sky or simply relax in our many comfortable beds and let the occasional train whistle lull you to sleep.

Livingston has everything a destination needs for Montana, our locals and non-resident travel year-round but it is not a touristy place, but a place tourist like to come for relaxation and enjoyment, both day and night all year round. We have things to do both day and night time as well as indoors and out and in any season sun, snow, rain and wind. 

Livingston is home to the largest population of writers and authors in the state. I think it has to do with the peace and quiet and inspiration our community provides. We have also had many famous visitors, from Calamity Jane to Sam Peckinpah and Michael Keaton to John Mayer we even pleased famous food critics like the late Anthony Bourdain in Livingston’s incredible restaurant selection.  

So, for your year-round destination, let Livingston be your basecamp for the best Yellowstone National Park vacation that you will remember for a lifetime as it is only 52 miles north of the first National Park, Yellowstone, with the most beautiful highway as your path. Once you start to make your way into the Paradise Valley you will be grabbing for your closest camera with anticipation and we can assure you that you won’t have disappointment until someone says it’s time to go home.
