Cradled in the foothills of the Montana Rockies, surrounded by pristine forests, alive with history and culture, lies Helena, "the heartbeat of Montana." This charming, sophisticated and beautiful Victorian city is both the capital of the state of Montana and the county seat for Lewis and Clark County.
Helena is a unique blend of the past and the present, whether it's business suits or blue jeans...people from all walks of life can find an environment to suit their lifestyle. The city itself is alive with the community spirit, street festivals, theater, museums, symphonies, fairs and rodeos. It is the hub of education and health care, a city of timeless treasures and sophisticated services.
Helena's beautiful downtown, rich in history, offers a delightful shopping and browsing experience. In the heart of this area is the Pedestrian Walking Mall, a park-like outdoor shopping area of historic sites and a diverse array of unique shops, coffeehouses and restaurants.
Great shopping abounds in all areas of Helena with an indoor mall (Capitol Hill Mall) and shopping districts on the east, west and north sides of town, the downtown area, plus a unique mid-town shopping section.
Take a moment to explore Helena and discover the beauty, the culture and the people that make Helena, and Montana, The Last Best Place.
