Manhattan, Montana

Elevation: 4243 FT

Population: 1677

County: Gallatin

Other than sharing its name with an arguably better-known New York borough, this Montana town has little in common with its more popular namesake. What it does have is wide-open spaces, beautiful vistas, a casual pace of life and the Manhattan Potato Festival, a mid-August celebration that is one of Montana's largest festivals, honoring the industry and crop that has made this area the potato capital of Montana.

With a history in the malting industry for beer production, Manhattan's now a place for wheat, dairy and beef (and potatoes) and local Montana treasures like woodcarvings and antiques.
