Butte, a city at 6,000 feet in the mountains of southwestern Montana, is known for its boomtown past—at one time it was the largest city in the Rockies—and today's tourists continue to enjoy its wealth of interesting landmarks and attractions. Flights to Butte, which land at Bert Mooney Airport (BTM), bring you to this all-American city, which among other claims to fame has the largest National Historic Landmark District in the United States. Butte vacation packages are also a great choice if you're seeking outdoor adventures on the region's rivers, trails, and ski slopes.
You can reach most Butte hotels within a 10- to 20-minute drive of BTM. Four rental car companies operate at the airport, and car rental is likely the most convenient option if you plan to visit attractions outside of Butte, such as renowned trout fishing spots, ski areas, and top golf courses. The airport is served by one taxi company, which offers transportation 24 hours a day. Passengers coming off Butte flights can also use the local Butte Bus to get to Historic Uptown Butte, the main shopping and dining district of the city. Wait at the bus stop at Harrison Avenue and Motor View Road, directly opposite the airport, to hop on the Harrison Route. Exact change is required for the fare. However you decide to make your way from BTM to your destination in Butte, look out the window and see some of the 14 headframes along the skyline. These historic structures are the above-ground remnants of more than 10,000 miles of abandoned tunnels and mine shafts under the city's streets. Other attractions include the Copper King Mansion and Charles Clark Chateau Mansion, the elaborate homes of wealthy copper barons that are among some 6,000 historic properties you'll see throughout the city.
