As much as Billings tries to be as popular as our friends in the western half of the state, I think we can all admit we're kind of Montana's redheaded stepchild when it comes to being a popular Montana vacation destination (no offense to gingers or stepchildren). Whitefish is awesome and Big Sky is loaded with Range Rovers full of cash. Flathead Lake is drop-dead gorgeous and even Georgetown Lake is getting fancier by the year, with million-dollar "cabins" lining the shore. Mountains, lakes, waterfalls and ski resorts are simply more attractive to most vacationers than good old Billings. Home to industries and... uh, other stuff.
