Custer Country, Montana’s largest tourism region, has released its 2010 Custer Country Vacation Guide. Newly-organized and containing new photos and articles, the 132-page guide covers events, attractions and historic information about the 34,000 square-mile region that covers 13 counties and two Indian reservations in southeastern Montana.
Those interested in the legend of Lieutenant Colonel George Custer, the Indian wars, Captain William Clark’s exploration of the Yellowstone River, hunting, fishing, biking, motorcycling, bird- and wildlife-watching and photography will enjoy this handy guide to what there is to see and do in Custer Country. Motorcyclists and RVers will also find the guide useful for pointing out the off-the-beaten-path routes to take to avoid traffic and crowds, and to find the most scenic routes from major cities to the small, friendly towns in the region.
Campgrounds, B&Bs, hotels, motels, and ranch vacation properties are featured in the guide, as are fishing and hunting regulations, Montana State Parks information and a Montana map.
You’ll also find a complete listing of events in Custer Country, laid out in a month-by-month format. This handy guide compliments Custer Country’s online calendar, which is updated whenever new events are planned. There’s always something to do in Custer Country, and the calendar is your guide to what to do on any given weekend, whether it’s a country fair, bump-and-run races, festivals or events like the Miles City Bucking Horse Sale, Forsyth’s annual Matthew Quigley Long Range Buffalo Rifle Shoot, Clark Days at Pompeys Pillar or a reenactment of Custer’s Last Stand near Hardin.
