Did You Know Montana Is One of the Least-Visited States?
So, obviously travel around the country is at a pretty severe low right now due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, and no one is really traveling anywhere. But one day, when life gets back to normal, people will start traveling again - and, for some reason, Montana will likely not be on their destination list.
Did you know Montana is the fourth LEAST-visited state in the entire country? That seems crazy to me - but Thrillist put together this list of the least-visited states and yep, there it is. But the list is there to make a case to convince people these states are worth checking out, especially once travel opens back up again. Here's what they said about Montana:
Montana? The state with Glacier AND Yellowstone national parks is the fourth LEAST-visited state? Yep. We really shouldn’t need to sell you on why you should visit Montana; the aforementioned national parks and Big Sky country are reason enough to make the trip.
Nevertheless, we encourage you to check out Whitefish, which has become a trendy resort town outside of Glacier with first-rate skiing; it's not nearly as crowded or douchey as its counterparts in Colorado, Utah, or even Jackson Hole. If you’re into fly fishing, there’s no better place to do it than Missoula, where the Blackfoot River was made famous in A River Runs Through It. And in between Whitefish and Missoula, definitely make a stop at Flathead Lake.
Then there’s the testicle festival. Held in Clinton the first weekend of August, it’s a four-day celebration of Rocky Mountain oysters. It's pure madness. Just go with it.
The only states that placed ahead of us were Deleware, Wyoming, and number one on the list, Alaska. Are you surprised that Montana placed number four on this list?
