Manhattan, Montana

Who knew that tucked away just outside of view from the freeway as a driver makes their way to the more populated Bozeman or Billings is the little town of Manhattan? With a population of 1,300, Manhattan is framed with picturesque panoramic of the Horseshoe Hills and the Bridger Range.

The old west town is supported on industries including potatoes, dairy, wheat, and cattle. Because of its food, arts, and outdoor recreation scene, the town of Manhattan is authentically rustic as fewer and fewer cities here and Montana can claim to be.

Originally named Hamilton, the renamed Manhattan has been an establishment here in southwestern Montana since 1865. By their traditions continue for many years to come.

Garage-A-Rama

Manhattan Easter Egg Hunt

Farmer’s Market

Potato Festival

Christmas Stroll

Carol, it is a pretty small town.  We have fun in the summer, we have a direct flight to New York, so we play with the direct Manhattan to Manhattan flight :).

Gayle, wow, thank you!
