T H E y 2 8 GROUP G R R O U P TRAVEL LE ADER T H E T he people of Billings, Montana, want to get you into their city. They also want to get you out. It's not that they are inhospitable — quite the opposite. Billings' location in the southeast of the state puts it within an easy driving distance of some of the area's most beautiful scenery and most historic sites. Locals want you to enjoy the attractions and amenities within the city limits without missing the chance to explore these nearby treasures. "You could stay here for a week and see all the things in town," said Alex Tyson, executive director of Visit Billings. "But our community brand is Montana's Trailhead. It's a hub- and-spoke mentality. If you're going to come here, you should take in a little bit of the United States history and also see the scenic wonders around us. You won't be disappointed."
