Great falls is Montana's third largest city, located on the Missouri River among the five falls that were both a magnificent spectacle and formidable barrier to early river travel. This area held great significance for the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The explorers were forced to spend nearly a month portaging around the falls in June 1805. Great Falls is home to the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Interpretive Center

In 1882, Paris Gibson, a Minneapolis city planner and engineer, recognized the potential in the area's abundant resources and central location, and with the backing of railroad magnate James J. Hill, became the city's first developer. Eight years later, the first of five dams to harness the mighty Missouri were completed. Gibson's legacy was a carefully planned city incorporating 56 parks – a heritage of beauty that makes Great Falls unique today.

Great Falls has a metro area population of approximately 80,000 and enjoys a moderate climate with clean, pure air, low humidity and long days of sunshine. “Chinook” winds make most winter days warmer and more pleasant. Great Falls is where the mountains meet the plains and straddles the mighty Missouri River and the smaller Sun River in the heart of some of Montana's best farm and ranch land. Great Falls is home to an International Airport. Go to Great Falls for more information about Great Falls and surrounding area.

Great Falls is situated in Central Montana between Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks.

The vistas seen from Going-To-The-Sun-Road are breathtaking, a photographers paradise.
