Make sure you check the weather forecast before you come rolling into Silver Gate, since those mountain roads leading to and from the city can get pretty unnavigable when the weather turns rough.
That describes the city well. Nestled in the mountains just a few miles from the northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park, Silver Gate, Montana is the kind of tiny town where the vast majority of people inside the town limits are visitors at any given time of year.
With major natural attractions both in the summer and the winter, you’ll find yourself one of many travelers virtually anytime you visit. And while that does meant that the area has more than its share of nearby tourist trap restaurants with interesting decor but subpar food and service, it also means that the nearby attractions are sure to be interesting, whether you’re here for a romantic getaway weekend or bringing the kids along on a family vacation.
