The Cowgirl, The Wilderness Explorer
Welcome to Augusta, Montana, where there are miles and miles of rolling wilderness everywhere you look and where you’re met with southern hospitality by locals. Think of this destination as a big hug from mother nature. Get ready for horseback riding, witness beautiful rivers flow into waterfalls of every size, and take in mountain air so fresh that you wish you could bottle it up and take it home.
Start your first day in Montana with outdoor yoga, while enjoying the fresh mountain air and picturesque views. The great thing about Montana is that every moment is like a meditation with nature; you can stop at any point you like to breathe and take in the beauty surrounding you. Next up Montana is known for its fresh farm-to-table food, so indulge in all the great food you can get.
Saddle up and get your cowboy boots on! Day two is all about trail riding at Sun Canyon Lodge. For those who have never ridden a horse before Sun Canyon Lodge is the perfect place to learn and fall in love with horses. As you ride the trails of Sun Canyon you are welcomed with hills and valleys that stretch for miles and returning to the lodge you are transported through tall birchlike trees that tower above you. Return to the lodge for drinks, music and friendly conversation as you take in your horseback riding experience.
Day 3 of your trip is packed with excitement and delicious food. Here's a suggested itinerary to make the most of your time in this charming western town. Start your day with a hearty breakfast at The Silver Dollar Diner. This classic diner serves up classic American breakfast fare with a Montana twist. Try the huckleberry pancakes or the bison sausage for a taste of the local flavors. After breakfast, head to the Augusta Rodeo Grounds for some thrilling rodeo action. Augusta is known for its rodeo events, and you won't want to miss the chance to see cowboys and cowgirls in action. Watch as they compete in events such as bull riding, bareback riding, and more. After the rodeo, grab a bite to eat at The Lazy B or Buckhorn Bar. These casual restaurants serve up classic American fare with a western twist. End the night by picking your music on their jukebox and grab your partner for some linedancing at both of these local bars!
