Just as Yellowstone’s Old Faithful erupts consistently regardless of the season, the water is always warm at Montana’s hot springs. In the winter, after a day of exploring—whether hiking, snowshoeing, or skiing—head to one of the many natural hot springs, perhaps with a bottle from one of Montana’s craft breweries. You can then wait for the stars to emerge in the state’s famous “Big Sky,” for a happy hour you’ll never forget. The options range from hot springs resorts with your room just steps from the waters, to spots only locals know (though you’ll find most are willing to share their secrets with visitors). Seen here is the Boiling River, in Yellowstone National Park.
