Think for a moment of every small town in Montana, and then think of all the small towns in the other 49 states.

That's a lot of small towns, which is why I think it's pretty impressive that the website Have Clothes Will Travel listed a Montana town as one of their 14 Prettiest Small Towns.

So what about this town makes it so pretty? Well, here is what Have Clothes, Will Travel had to say about West Yellowstone,

As the gateway to Yellowstone National Park, West Yellowstone is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. The town is surrounded by pristine wilderness and offers easy access to various outdoor activities, including hiking, fishing, and wildlife watching. Visitors can also explore the town’s numerous museums and historic sites, such as the Yellowstone Historic Center Museum and the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center. In the winter, West Yellowstone is a popular destination for snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.

Having spent time in West Yellowstone before, I can't argue with what they've said here. It truly is one of America's prettiest small towns.
