Livingston and Paradise Valley are OPEN!
The towns and communities around Yellowstone National Park, especially those on the North, have been deeply impacted by unprecedented flooding. While we understand this affects many people’s vacation plans, it has devastated our communities – people have lost their homes and livelihoods – and we are asking for your support, heightened awareness, and patience as we recover. Please come visit!
Please DO NOT CANCEL YOUR RESERVATIONS. Livingston and Paradise Valley lodging, restaurants, shops, museums, event venues, hot springs, movie and live theatres, City parks and trails, swimming pool, skate park, bowling alley, golf course (reopening soon), Montana Grizzly Bear Encounter, and more activities are all OPEN FOR BUSINESS. Explore Livingston Montana can help you craft a custom itinerary. Here are some area activity suggestions, most amenities and experiences mentioned in these itineraries remain open!
Yellowstone National Park southern entrance is OPEN. To ensure the south loop does not become overwhelmed with visitors and to balance park resource protection and economic interests of surrounding communities, the park is instituting an interim visitor access plan, referred to as the Alternating License Plate System (ALPS). Learn more here.
The best way to support our community is by booking hotel reservations, spending at small local shops, and taking advantage of our many recreations and arts opportunities. Our economy depends on tourism and we value your investment in our community and encourage you to explore Livingston, be patient, know before you go, and recreate responsibly.
