    The biggest attraction in Billiongs during the summer is the MontanaFair at Metra Park. It's in Mid-Agust (I think this year, it starts on August 12) and covers everything Montana! There asre also a couple of day tyrips in the area suchas Pompey Pillar where Lewis and Clarck carved an inscription, the seat of the battle of Little Big Horn, a drive to Red Lodge and the Beartooth Scenic Byway (unless you plan on staying in theYellowstone area or drive all day, you can turn back at the summit of the pass, it'll take at least 3-4 hours from Billings to get to the summit, I've got a page on it)... Enjoy!

    Melissa, Many thanks for taking the time to reply. I have two goals when going to Billings. 1) Drive the Beartooth Highway. We will be driving from West Yellowstone to Billings 2) To see the Little Big Horn Battlefield. I will have my wife and twin 12 year old boys with me who will be less impressed than I am with the above. I am looking for sweeteners for them when I ask what there is around Billings. UK

    On our way into Montana we stopped at the little big horn battlefield and it was pretty interesting but after we lived here a month or so, saw a documentary on tv about it and they went on about what a haunted place it is and how many people have seen so many ghosts. Perhaps your kids could investigate that before you go and find it more interesting. History comes "alive" so to speak.
