20 College Towns We Love to Visit

Fodor's Logo By Sara Quaranta of Fodor's | Slide 1 of 20: Though its acres of parkland, miles of trails and proximity to breathtaking nature like Glacier National Park and Flathead Lake never go unnoticed, the home of the University of Montana is often overlooked when it comes to its thriving restaurant scene. Check out The Silk Road Restaurant for a tapas-style tour of the world, from Austrian pork schnitzel to mango habanero sorbet, or pop into Biga Pizza for the Vesuvio, a pie topped with mozzarella, salami, hot cherry peppers, and kalamata olives.Missoula is also home to Montana’s largest brewery, Big Sky Brewing Co. The taproom closes at 7 p.m. at the latest, so it’s perfect for reliving your day-drinking college days—except now you can enjoy a Moose Drool Brown Ale rather than a can of Natty Light.Plan Your Trip: Visit Fodor’s Missoula, Kalispell, and Northwest Montana Travel Guide
