Nestled in the Northern Rockies of Montana, surrounded by seven wilderness areas and at the confluence of three rivers, Missoula is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. You can kayak, raft or tube through downtown or take a relaxing hike in 60,000 acres of wilderness minutes from this apartment. Missoula is known for its blue-ribbon trout fishing (made famous by A River Runs Through It) and spectacular natural beauty. The outdoor recreational opportunities are limitless from here. Missoula is also a regional destination for shopping and dining, featuring three distinct shopping districts and an abundance of restaurants, cafes, coffee houses and breweries with something to fit all budgets and palates. Known for its eclectic culture, you will find this arts and cultural hub filled with a seeming endless array of arts and entertainment events. Think symphony, theatre, film festivals, author’s readings at independent bookstores, college sports, ballet, opera and roller derby. And you can get to everything from this convenient location the in heart of the city at the foot of the beautiful South Hills.
Lewis and Clark/Southgate is the ideal Missoula neighborhood for getting anywhere, from the mall to downtown to the University or walk to the fairgrounds and Glacier Ice Rink, shopping and dining. Some of Missoula’s best recreation areas are right here within walking distance. Spring through autumn, Playfair Park is bustling with activity as families congregate among the soccer fields, tennis courts, and the very modern water park, Splash Montana.
Travel straight up South Russell Street into the hills on the south end of the valley and you’ll find the South Hills and Moose Can Gully neighborhoods (can be viewed from the fenced yard). Historically marked by ranches and farms, the South Hills neighborhoods still respectfully nod to their rural roots.
Over 1,000 acres of open space easements provide for peaceful places to explore and enjoy. Groceries and restaurants can be accessed quickly from the hills, or residents can trek further up to enjoy both the sunset and fine dining at the historic The Keep restaurant.
