Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center

Lewis & Clark Expedition spent more time in Great Falls than almost any other spot on their trip. The Interpretative Center is part museum, past education and a lot of walking through history and imaging what the trip must have been like

First People Buffalo Jump State Park

Just a short drive south of Great Falls it highlights one of the biggest buffalo jumps in Montana. The area was reportedly used by several Native American Tribes to hunt for food and robes.

Mechanics is one of the FFA Contests

Charlie Russell Museum

Anyone interested in Western Art, the Charlie Russell Museum is a must see. Alongside of the famous cowboy’s art, many other artists are on display.

Rivers Edge Trail

The trail covers 60 miles of scenic areas alongside the Missouri River. Some areas of the trail are flat and made for easy walking while some come with a little more work as you climb hills.

Giant Springs State Park

Home to the world’s shortest river “The Roe River.” Also has a fish hatchery that is fun to see.

Gibson Park

About a mile from the MT ExpoPark, Gibson Park has a walking trail and a duck pond.

Riverside Railyard Skate Park

A great place to burn off a little extra energy. Also very close to the MT ExpoPark
