This Montana Hidden Gem Is Ranked In The Top 15 In The U.S.
The list of fun things to do in Montana is so long that it often takes years to see it all, if you live here, or numerous trips if you are just visiting. Regardless, we may not be the most populated state, but we definitely have lots to see and do.
On the top of many people's lists of things to do is of course visit Yellowstone National Park. There are so many "must do" things in the park alone including seeing Old Faithful, the numerous waterfalls, and the Roosevelt Archway, just to list a few.
There is one hidden gem that some forget about, or don't want any newcomers to know about. Well, I am about to spoil that for some.
Out of the entire United States, Yellowstone National Park has made the list of Best Swimming Holes. Montana actually made the top 15.
Trips to Discover has named Firehole River as one of the best summer swimming holes of 2023. If you have never been to Firehole River in Yellowstone National Park, you will find it near the west entrance to the park, and here is what you can expect to find.
Although called Firehole River, the temperature should be pretty pleasant, especially on a warm summer day. There is a beach area for you to take a little breather and relax for a bit. If you have littles with you, no worries! There are some shallow spots for them to splash around in and enjoy just as much as you.
The scenery is just another perk to this stop at Yellowstone National Park.
