America's Greatest Main Streets

America's greatest main streets: Red Lodge

Red Lodge, MT

Think Calamity Jane and Buffalo Bill Cody might look at home walking by Broadway Avenue’s Wild West façades? You’re right: both legends spent time in Red Lodge during its late-19th-century heyday. The Sundance Kid once robbed a bank on Broadway—lending it even more sepia-toned pedigree. The restored two-story shops, restaurants, and galleries are framed by the spectacular Beartooth Mountains; in fact, Broadway is part of an 80-mile-long Mainstreet to Mountains Rocky Fork Trail used to access the wilderness just outside town limits.

Worth a Stop: Join Buffalo Bill and Calamity Jane on the guest register at the Pollard Hotel, built in 1893 and still the place to stay.
