Tour to Miles City – Saturday, May 21, 2016

 

MIles City

Miles City is just two hours to the east of Billings and has yet to be explored by the Absaroka Region as a whole. This year we picked a great weekend full of fun activities and surprises. Miles City is famous for its annual Bucking Horse Sale. This year is the 66th edition and starts on the weekend we’re visiting. It’s going to be a busy place for sure!

For this tour we’ll hustle down the interstate to Miles City where we’ll visit one of Montana’s vineyards and winery, the Tongue River Winery. We’ll attempt to have lunch at the famous Montana Bar and Steakhouse and after lunch take in the Range Rider Museum.

The city will be full of events you can explore. Just check out the schedule on the Bucking Horse Sale’s website for a complete schedule and times.
