Philipsburg, MT 59858, USA
Travel Guide: Philipsburg, Montana - an old but lively West-mining townThe draw of Philipsburg, MT, an old West-mining town that is still very much alive starts with the painted mainstreet and sweet spots to stop like Sweet Palace, a candy store where you will find hundreds of varieties. But the best stuff is what’s made in house, like the 50 kinds of fudge, 72 flavors of taffy and 20 varieties of caramel. Next door you will find Sapphire Gallery, where you can grab a bag of gravel guaranteed to have a sapphire inside for 25 bucks. When it comes to a spot to stay, check out the Broadway Hotel, a spot that was once a general store back in the mining hey day. Today, current owners have renovated the building into a charming hotel with 9 rooms that are all decorated to a different theme ranging from Route 66 to mining and even ranching to play homage to a current industry in the town.
