Visit the farmers market, attend one of many art fairs or a music festival, or check out the local theatre to watch a play. With a variety of restaurants and a local brew pub, Hamilton offers everything needed. The nearby Bitterroot National Forest, with a 1.6-million-acre forest, is a popular place for hiking, camping, mountain biking and hunting. The stunning Bitterroot River runs through the valley and is an ideal place for fishing or picnicking. Winter offers cross country skiing and downhill skiing nearby. It’s an outdoor lover’s paradise!
