Previously among the most mysterious of the the western states, the state that's called the "Big Sky Country" has become one of the favourite vacation destinations of both U.S. citizens and visitors from other lands. Montana has no true major cities, and most of those who fill the rooms at Montana hotels aren't interested in exploring city life anyway. They are there for the mountains, pristine rivers, lakes, wildflower-laden alpine meadow,s and views of the big blue sky. For this reason, prices at hotels in Montana tend to increase the farther away you get from the few city lights that exist. Budget-minded tourists frequently find cheap hotel deals in Montana cities and pack picnic lunches and dinners for day trips to the forests, lakes, and fields.
Billings is a popular city for those who want to explore the eastern part of the Big Sky Country and book Montana hotel packages for themselves. The nearby Big Horn River is known as one of the best fly-fishing destinations in the American West, and opportunities for fishing are available from March through November. The small community of Fort Smith, which is outside of Billings, is where most fly fishermen look for Montana hotel deals. Some of the top luxury resorts in the state can also be found in this area.
Except for those who go to the Big Horn River for fly fishing, most of the visitors to Montana prefer to remain on the west side of the Rocky Mountains. Missoula is a quaint little college town where it's possible for student travellers who come to participate in outdoor recreation to get discount rates at local hostels as well as special prices on Montana hotels.
Examples of the type of outdoor recreation that can be found in the Missoula area include mountain biking, hiking, boating, swimming, fishing, and camping. Many of those who make reservations for a cheap Montana hotel deal use their rooms as a base camp for exploring the state. Because Montana receives an abundant amount of snow, winter sports are also a huge draw for visitors to hotels in Montana as well.
