Tours

There is a tour company in Billings called Montana Fun Adventures. They do local tours and seasonal tours. Then there are a few that stretch out over longer distances to area events and places.

I took their Ghost Tour and had a good time on it. It was $21 and was about 1 hour & 20 minutes long. It narrated by a retired librarian Karen Stevens, who has written a couple of books, one being "Haunted Montana", and a second ghost story book ready to go to print. As with most librarians, she was a wealth of knowledge. I learned a great deal about the history of Billings on the tour. We did get to stop at two different places known for their ghosts, the Depot and the room in the Dude Rancher Hotel that is known for a ghost or two.

I have added to several places I already had up about the ghosts spoken about on the tour. BOO

Farmer's Market

On Saturday Mornings there is a big farmer's market held. People bring produce from all over to sell and it is a good time. There are musicians who play in the streets. There was a clown making balloons for children when I was there last time.

I really like the Hooterite booths because they sell food that is grown without all of the additives. The chickens do not have hormones or antibiotics. This is good for not getting cancer and especially good for small girls. Hormones that are added to animals make little girls mature earlier than they should. My grandfather knew this back in the 60's and 70's and refused to use it in his cattle, as he did not want to be part of the problem.

Address: Under Sky Point downtown

Gambling

Gambling is legal in Montana. You can find poker games and casinos all over. You can find a poker game in several different bars and casinos around the area - such as at Doc & Eddies. All bars have a section of machines to play. Personally I do not recommend any of the Lucky Lil's. With the way they treat employees - I don't trust them to be all that honest about the machines.
