Like much of the country, Southwest Montana has been experiencing a bit of a heat wave over the last couple of weeks. Luckily for us, there is no shortage of ways to get out of the heat in the region. Whether you are looking for indoor activities (museums, carousels, art galleries, breweries, etc.) or maybe enjoying the outdoors (lakes, rivers, hikes, etc), Southwest Montana has something for everyone. While all of these are great options, we took a different approach to enjoying the summer.
When temperatures started settling in the 90s, we took the opportunity to explore the region one ice cream shop at a time – here’s some of the highlights!
The Milk Pail – Dillon
The Big Dipper – Helena
The Spirit of Columbia Gardens – Butte
Prison Cow Ice Cream – Deer Lodge
PC: Prison Cow Ice Cream

We’re committed to keeping Montana’s outdoor spaces, communities, residents and visitors safe. As you enjoy Southwest Montana, join us in Recreating Responsibly.
