This city slicker will be in Butte this coming March. I've never been to Butte before so while I'm out there for my buddy's wedding, I want the real cowboy ranch experience with horses, cows, bonfires, grub... Lay it on me!
Oh boy, get ready! I live in Bozeman, just several hours south, and Butte is quite the town with a very interesting history, some gun-slingers, great local pride, and one of the rowdiest parties in the nation, (St. Patrick's Day - watch out...seriously.) Check out Homestake Lodge (www.homestakelodge.com) on the Continental Divide and do some cross country skiing in the majestic Rocky Mountains. Also, if you can travel outside of town, head to one of Montana's hot springs (developed or primitive,) such as Fairmont Hot Springs or Boulder Hot Springs.
