Once a booming mining city, Butte is Montana’s basecamp for historic exploration and outdoor recreation.
Originally called “Butte, America” because of its thriving immigrant population, Butte today is known for its local pride and singular history. The city’s “Butte tough” ethos produced iconic stunt performer Evel Knievel, who attempted more than 75 ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jumps. Butte’s bygone days of copper mining have left behind numerous historical sites such as the Berkeley Pit, Granite Mountain Memorial Overlook, and the Copper King Mansion. In place of Butte's rugged past is an energetic community full of music festivals, community celebrations, and a city that is dedicated to bringing new life to its historical downtown.
In addition to its colorful history, Butte offers an outdoor playground with access to plentiful hiking, biking, and ATV trails, including the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail. Butte is the place to revisit America’s past, experience a vibrant local scene, and gain easy access to extraordinary scenic vistas.
