Missoula, MT

What can I expect from Missoula?

Missoula is a beautiful mountain college town that is very scenic. Missoula is home to many great breweries. There are great American and pub style restaurants. Don’t miss the burnt ends from The Notorious P.I.G., you won’t be sorry. This is a great weekend getaway to go as a couple or with a group of friends.

Typical Costs When Traveling

AccommodationVRBO, Airbnb, or HomeAway is your best bet. You can find affordable and charming homes for rent throughout Missoula. There are also camping opportunities.

Food – There are so many great American and pub style restaurants to sample in Missoula. Plan on $20 per person per meal.

Transportation – Walking or Uber/Lyft would be my recommendation. If you stay locally to town, you easily could walk to get food and beer. If you want to do more hiking then you could take an Uber.

Suggested daily budget – $125-$150 USD (Note: This is a suggested budget assuming you’re staying in an Airbnb, eating out for lunch and dinner and walking. Using the budget tips below, you can always lower this number. However, if you stay in fancier accommodation or eat out more often, expect this to be higher!)

Money Saving Tips

Stay locally and walk If you in Missoula to visit the many great breweries, you could try to find lodgings that are near town and walk to your destinations.
Cook your own breakfast Skip eating out for every meal and opt to cook some meals in your Airbnb and splurge on good food and beer for dinner!
Go with friends and split the lodgings Missoula is a great place to go as a group or with other couples. There are plenty of places that you can have multiple people stay in together and then you could split the cost.
Opt for free entertainment Go and do things that cost little to no money like hiking or fishing.

I’m a travel addict. When my kids were younger, we loved to explore our home state of Utah by camping, hiking and biking. I love the outdoors and the last few years I’ve become obsessed with new outdoor destinations and the best way to maximize my vacation budget so I can travel often. I love experiencing those new destinations and cultures through food and beer. You’ll often find me trying to convince others to book a vacation or planning my next vacation!
