Stay in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Great Falls, home of Malmstrom Air Force Base. Immerse yourself in the legendary adventures of Lewis and Clark and glimpse stately bald eagles soaring above riverside trails.
This friendly Montana city lies along the banks of the mighty Missouri River. The Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery spent a grueling month in 1805 making its way around the towering Missouri River falls that gave this city its name. Thrill to depictions of this event and other highlights of the explorers' westward expeditions at the outstanding Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Interpretive Center, set on a bluff overlooking the river near our Great Falls hotels. Native son Charles M. Russell painted iconic images of proud Indians and solitary cowboys against a backdrop of mountain and prairie landscapes. Admire the world's largest collection of paintings and sculptures by "America's Cowboy Artist" at the C.M. Russell Museum.
Head out from our hotels in Great Falls to go fly-fishing on the Missouri River and nearby creeks and streams. Spend a day casting a line for rainbow and brown trout under blue Montana skies. The 30-mile-long River's Edge Trail is a favorite of bikers and joggers. The paved pathway begins at Odd Fellows Park near our Great Falls hotels and meanders past the river's famed Great Falls, now tamed by dams to generate electricity for the city. Follow up a bracing hike with dinner at one of the moderately priced restaurants and ethnic eateries clustered along 10th Avenue south of downtown. The city's laid-back nightlife centers around its bars and casinos.
Book a room at our Holiday Inn Express Great Falls hotels in to admire Western landscapes that have changed little since Charles Russell depicted them 100 years ago.
