LIVINGSTON, along the Yellowstone River, offers an eclectic western town with friendly folk. Our historic downtown, depot center and Sacajawea park present a charming "step back in time" to the 1880's when the first cross country railroad to Yellowstone National Park and the West Coast was traveled on. Livingston is well known for our World Class fly fishing and so much more as we also tout a colorful palette of historic characters, ranchers and explorers, as well as contemporary artists, writers, performers and world class travelers. No stranger to the big scene, Livingston has played host to several TV and movie crews including "A River Runs Through It". With four majestic mountain ranges surrounding Livingston, the Absaroka Mountain range, the Bridger range, the Gallatin and the Crazy Mountains overlooking the city, along with our legendary Yellowstone river and the picturesque Paradise Valley to the south, it's easy to be inspired. While here, enjoy the best in Montana dining in a wide variety of unique restaurants and taverns serving local talented chefs of both fine dining and casual experiences, most serve eco-friendly locally grown favorites.
