We love to be tourists in Montana. Within an hour or two (or less) there are a lot of cool places to explore. A lot of great places for a field trip.
We’ve spent plenty of time in the Spa Hotel hot spring pool, but there was more of White Sulfur to see.
We still like the pool, though, and started there. It’s looking a little grimy these days, but they are building a new pool (and 16 new rooms) set to open in December.
Our next stop was at the castle. The museum is closed for the year, but we had fun picnicking, running around on the lawn and balancing on the stone walls.
I wanted to walk around downtown (two or three blocks with a few shops), so that was our next stop. We wandered around a strange store with five million items. Like a thrift shop, but not as nice.
Then the boys talked me into a “snack.” That’s Finnese for sweet treat. They got milkshakes at Dori’s. If you are not used to Montana decor, this place might be a little frightening. Luckily I am hardened to the heads-on-the-wall-thing. We played games identifying the animals while we waited for our food.
