Bringing the family? ZooMontana is it. Spend the day exploring the zoo’s 70 acres that feature regional and exotic animals such as bears, tigers, wolves, takin, red pandas, a free-flight aviary and more. And, if you’re looking for a true wild west experience, summer is rodeo time in Billings. Catch a night rodeo and see the area’s best ropin’ and ridin’. Or, take a cool break at one of Billings’ waterslides and pools.
