If you want to get away from the crowds, check out the Cabinet wilderness in Libby, small town in the northwest of the state. Great spot to hike and fish mountain lakes.

I have to agree. Bozeman rocks. There's also a great dinosaur museum in Bozeman, called The Museum of the Rockies. Down the main drag, they have several restaurants and pubs that are dedicated to sourcing their offerings locally. The Montana Ale Works is one of the best restaurants I've been to for pub style foods--innovative, local, delicious.

I spent some time this summer around Twin Bridges. Had a blast in the area. Pretty laid back.

I want to come out there for a vacation this year. When is it safe to drive out in the spring I hear the snow storms can get nasty. I have a jeep but still not to smart to mess with mother nature she has a way of kicking your ass when she can.

Depending what you want to do, I'd wait until at least April. Then you'd be past most of the snow. There will still be snow in the higher elevations through May and even into June. Everything unpaved is muddy in late spring during "break up". Mid-May to Mid-June is usually cold and rainy.

For the absolute best vacation to Montana, for most people and most adventures, is July, August, and September.

It's always cold at night, even in July, so plan for it. As soon as the sun gets low in the evening, the temperature drops fast. It can by 95 degrees at 3:00 in the afternoon, and drop below 50 before midnight.
