The Community - Helena, MT
Located in southwest Montana, Helena is a beautiful getaway spot - a capital city that embraces its past but gives travelers lots of new things to do, too. USA Today recently called Helena one of Montana's top 5 interesting places to go, praising the destination for its modern vibe while maintaining its historic Gold Rush heritage. "A modern city, Helena also has hung onto a lot of its past with the preservation of many of the old buildings and attractions that made it popular during the post Gold Rush years, when it became a haven for those who struck it rich,” the USA Today story says.
