Need to ease your mind and relax? One of the best ways to do that in Montana is to head to a hot spring.

The real question we have to ask is, where do Montana's hot springs rank amongst the hot springs found in the world? We have that answer.

Men's Journal made a list of the 12 Best Hot Springs in The World, and two Montana hot springs landed on the list.

Landing at #8 on the list is the iconic Chico Hot Springs in Pray, Montana. Chico Hot Springs opened in 1900 and is a staple for locals and tourists. Whether you're going there to take a dip or staying for the weekend, Chico Hot Springs is an iconic place.

Right behind Chico at #9 is Yellowstone Hot Springs in Gardiner, Montana. Yellowstone Hot Springs is closely located at the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park, and the views are immaculate. Yellowstone Hot Springs has only been operating for less than five years, and it's fantastic to see them land on a list like this.

On a list that includes hot springs in Germany, France, California, and other international destinations, it's fantastic to see Montana be the only state that has two selections land on the list. That shows how incredible the hot springs are in Montana and how fortunate we are to live here.
