Zoo Montana, Billings © Montanabw
Montana's zoological park and botanical garden hosts around 70,000 visitors a year and is one of the state's most popular tourist attractions, the only zoo within 600 miles (965km) of Billings. With pristine natural habitats, the complex covers 70 acres (28 ha) to the west of the city. It exhibits animals and plants native to the northern Rockies and high plains, and similar latitudes in Europe and Asia. The grounds have also recently opened up as a concert venue, with musicians and fans alike revelling in the gorgeous surrounds.
