Miles City is still a thriving center of commerce. It is the largest city in Southeastern Montana and the hub of activity for the region. Growth is evident in a steadily expanding business district and new medical campus, but the community remains true to its friendly, small-town atmosphere.
We like the pace a bit slower in these parts. Unless, of course, you happen to be here during the "World Famous Miles City Bucking Horse Sale." Always the third weekend in May, this event - dubbed the "Cowboy Mardis Gras" - consists of three days of broncs being ridden and auctioned off, plus street dances in the "people corral" on Main Street and other western activities. Miles City's population of about 8,500 easily doubles with visitors from the states and abroad.
Custer County has a beauty all its own. In many places, the prairie seems to stretch on forever, but we also have our breathtaking buttes, rolling hills and awe-inspiring badlands. The Yellowstone and Tongue rivers offer prime fishing and recreational opportunities. There's also no shortage of good habitat for big game hunting, particularly for whitetail and mule deer. In Miles City, you can easily spend a day roaming the Range Riders Museum and Custer County Art Center.
But one of the best features of this area is its people, who will show you firsthand what Western hospitality is all about! So spend some time in cowboy country with us!
