Montana is a beautiful place and Fall is one of the best times of the year to witness the splendor of the state. In many places, bright yellow groves of aspen trees sprawl across mountainsides and create picturesque landscapes that will take your breath away. There are several places in Montana where you can take in all of the fall colors, but one city in the state was named one of America's top destinations for Fall.

Fall in Montana can be hit or miss. Mother Nature sometimes decides to skip a season, a go straight into winter. You only have a short window to enjoy the cooler temperatures and colorful displays in Montana before everything gets covered in a sheet of white. Fortunately, it hasn't started snowing yet, so you still have time to get outside and see the state in all of its Fall glory.

Where is the Best Place to See Fall Colors in Montana?

To be honest, we were a bit surprised by the location in Montana that was included on the list. Bozeman was named the best Fall travel destination in the state.

Spend your Friday afternoon hiking trails with the locals, a set of paths that are particularly glorious in Autumn. Then, tailgate with the Montana State students and alumni on Saturday, or if the Bobcats are playing a road game, just spend the day shopping and dining. On Sunday, make a loop through Yellowstone National Park, which is located less than two hours away to complete a hat trick of Autumn activities you can't do in any other destination.
