Springtime is in full-swing, hopefully the final snowstorm has passed, and summer is just around the corner.
Weve heard and seen the series of advertisements featuring Gov. Marc Racicot encouraging Montanans to invite out-of-state friends and relatives to visit the state. We think the people of Havre should take that one step further invite your friends and family to visit Havre.
But what are they going to do here, you ask?
The Havre Daily News staff recently completed a project outlining what there is to do in Havre and along the Hi-Line. The Visitors Guide, which will be distributed in the HDN on Thursday and extra copies will be available throughout the community, gives vacationers and residents a look at all there is to do. We think some people will be surprised.
Tourist sites such as the Wahkpa Chugn buffalo kill site, Fort Assinniboine, and Havre Beneath the Streets are just the ticket for American west history buffs.
Museums galore the Heritage Center, Railroad Museum, Depot Museum, Blaine County Museum, and more both entertain and inform visitors.
Area Native American powwows give visitors a glimpse of another culture and their ancient traditions colorfully continued today.
Looking more to participate than watch? Weve got golf courses, camping, hiking, fishing, lakes for swimming or boating, and other sporting activities to get your heart pumping.
The city parks offer perfect settings for a family picnic, game of horseshoes, or rousing game of softball.
Even a leisurely walking tour of the city can provide an interesting look at its history.
There are even more activities for visitors and residents than we had room to include in the guide, but a quick look around town will fill you in.
Its time to take some pride in our community and share it with others. If the Havre community doesnt promote itself, who will?
