It's nice to get out of town on the weekends.  Not that there isn't plenty to do here on the weekends.  Between shows, bike runs, and sporting events there's lots happening all the time in Billings.  Onlyinourstate.com had 8 Charming River Towns in Montana.

I'm a creature of habit.  Normally at The Pub Station on the weekends or a local brewery.  But it's time to break the habit and get out of town and explore Montana a little more.  I grew up in a small town in NE so the idea of escaping to a small town for the weekend suits me.  What's your favorite small Montana town to visit for the weekend?
