If you're thinking of heading to Great Falls for the State Fair this year, make a long weekend out of it and check out some of the other fun things to do in Montana's "Electric City." VisitGreatFalls.com notes some highlights of your visit might include:

  • Enjoying a Tiki drink and a show at the legendary Sip 'n Dip Bar, the only bar in the state with live mermaids swimming in the huge tank behind the bar.
  • Giant Springs State Park is the most-visited state park in Montana and it's easily accessible from the River's Edge Trail. The spring spits out 156 million gallons of 54 degree water every day.
  • The Great Falls Buffalo Hunt. In 2005, 26 life-sized, fiberglass bison were painted by local artists and installed around town. Grab a map and find them all for a fun way to explore Great Falls.

Of course, no trip to Great Falls would be complete without a visit to Howard's Pizza, the El Commodore or Borries. All local favorites, as written about by our resident Great Falls Native, Mark Wilson.
