Dillon is a small town. Forbes has listed Dillon, Montana, as one of the prettiest towns in America. Given that we visited in mid-October, I could see why: pretty fall colors framed historic architecture, many people had set up fall and Halloween decorations, and the town looked very iconic. Dillon feels like a haunted historic place, while also feeling like a link to the Old West, while also feeling like a filming location for an episode of Gilmore Girls. It all depends on what lens you want to look at the town through! This post is about the 11 Things to do in Dillon, Montana that I recommend!
The Andrus Hotel in Dillon, Montana, is charming and luxurious, unlike what you’d expect out of a town the size of Dillon. In fact, this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at–and I have stayed at a nice selection of hotels due to growing up in Hawai’i and due to various work trips at my last job!
Overall, Montana's Virginia City and Nevada City are fun attractions to add to your Southwest Montana itinerary, and will bring history to life.
