The Capital City was founded by four prospectors who gave it one last chance to strike it rich. Luckily for Helena, this endeavor was successful and sealed its fate to become a central hub of the state. Today’s itinerary will give you just a taste of Helena, with opportunity to dig deeper into the history, stroll with the locals, and catch a show. The Gates of the Mountains Wilderness provides visitors with recreational opportunity in addition to the chance to dive into the history dating back to the Native Americans who called the land home, the Lewis & Clark Expedition, and the Mann Gulch Fire of 1949. After spending your morning on the Missouri, drive into Helena and explore the local hot spot, the Helena Walking Mall. Top the day off with a visit to the Myrna Loy Center where you will find a variety of film screenings and live performances.
