With Yellowstone National Park, Sawtooth National Forest, and Lewis and Clark National Forest all within a manageable drive, it's best to rent a car in Butte. The surrounding natural attractions are too good to miss. In town, you can learn all about minerals at the World Museum of Mining, and be amazed—or horrified—by the Berkeley Pit, which is a 1,700-feet deep that was formerly an open-pit copper mine. The Copper King Mansion is an exquisite estate worth touring, as it highlights the wealth that mining brought to the town. The town is known for its Irish roots, and you can't miss out on having an Irish meal in the Uptown area. With so much to explore, be sure to look for Butte vacation packages that involve the activities you want to enjoy.
