RED LODGE POST
A small town feel with big time dreams. Lewistown answers the call from all those who make this town home and to all who visit.
With miles upon miles of paved walking and biking trails you can explore the town on foot and see the historical views, bubbling spring creek, and wildlife all while staying within minutes of city center.
Surrounded by four mountain ranges Lewistown’s opportunities for camping, hiking, fishing, and hunting are endless.
Visit for the famous Chokecherry Festival in September and you are guaranteed a good time from morning to night. The famous painter, Charlie Russell, has a namesake dinner train that travels along miles of the Old Milwaukee rail system. With entertainment on board and outside you are sure to enjoy your journey.
Lewistown offers a variety of dining as well. You can get many styles of food, and all eateries offer friendly service, with gusto and a smile. The dining experience will keep you wanting to come back again and again. Lewistown offers plenty of good lodging options to suit everyone’s needs.
There’s more fun year-round in Lewistown. In the spring, enjoy the opening of the Central Montana Museum, a visit to ways of the past at Pioneer Power Days, and join in at Montana’s Longest table for a taste of foods produced in Montana.
Summer offers golfing, car racing, and the annual Montana Poetry gathering. Fall gives way for fossil hunting, homestead tours, and the famous Bale Trail.
In the winter season, the North Pole Adventure Train takes trips to the North Pole (well, Lewistown’s North Pole). There are ski hills nearby, and the mountains offer places to snowmobile, snowshoe, or go cross-country skiing.
Lewistown comes together for an annual Christmas stroll on Main Street having s’mores, parades, bonfires, and, of course, the man in red, Santa Claus, makes a stop! It’s a community event of sharing and friendship, and so another season ends, with a magnificent celebration showing why Lewistown is so special.
So much is nice in Lewistown that you may even want to stay on and make Lewistown your new home. With an excellent school system, parks scattered through the town, and established youth activities families are sure to find many opportunities to stretch their legs or put down roots.
