Helena - MontanaPerched at the foot of the Rockies, Helena is much more than just a stopover town along the way to Glacier National Park or Canada. It is the capital of the state of Montana and a vibrant modern city with a 150-year history. 

Helena is no longer the "Last Chance Gulch" of the prospectors of yore. According to popular history, Helena was the last chance for a group of four miners to find gold before resigning themselves to returning home, empty handed.

You may not find gold here, but you are sure to appreciate a few pleasant hours spent strolling through the charming downtown area.

And if you come across the St-Helena Cathedral, you may have the fleeting impression that you are in Europe.

If you want to stretch your legs, you could climb the 1906 Trail to the top of Mount Helena.

For more information about Helena and the surrounding area, visit the City of Helena website.
