Paint the Town Red (Lodge)

Red Lodge is one of those charming little Montana towns that sucks you right in. Maybe you just stop for a burger at Red Box Car. Then you decide a post-prandial stroll through the tidy historic downtown wouldn’t hurt. Why not pop into a gallery or two? Or (real quick) the Montana Candy Emporium? Then the aroma from City Bakery wafts by…

Might as well give in. Seal the deal with a pint (and maybe a tour) at Red Lodge Ales Brewery, or grab a pizza from Red Lodge Pizza Co. Swear to work it off at Red Lodge Mountain tomorrow, if you don’t end up exploring the Beartooth Nature Center instead. Then, rest up: the 1960s Yodeler Hotel has one frill (steam sauna showers) while upscale Historic Pollard has plenty, plus a luxe breakfast. When you finally leave, resolve to return: after Memorial Day, the spectacular Beartooth Highway opens for scenic driving.

Bull And Bear Saloon

I recommend this bar because the atmosphere is very cool and the bartender made my husband and I feel so welcome while we were on vacation in Red Lodge. Great conversation with the locals was fun and interesting!

Carbon County Steakhouse

Exceptional steak. Who even knows what else is on the menu, because this is all they need. Mouth is watering just thinking of the juicy, tender sirloin I experienced last time.
