Things I Can't Wait to Do in Montana This Week

I'm from Montana. I'm headed home for the week to spend time with family and friends. And, to visit some of my favorite places.
  1. Staggering Ox
    The best sandwiches in the world. So good they have a patent. The White House orders them.
  2. Livingston
    The current best place in Montana for art, culture and interestingness.
  3. Paradise Valley
    South of Livingston. It is as beautiful as its name.
  4. Chico
    In Paradise Valley is my favorite hotel in Montana. Truly authentic, unlike these other so-called luxury hotels that have found their way into Montana which are not authentic at all.

    Chocolates to die for. The White House also orders from here.

    Best small stream fly fishing in Montana.
