Rocky Mountain Front Plays for Destination Dollars

September 24, 2007

Choteau, MT – Communities along Montana's Rocky Mountain Front are working to grab more of the tourism industry with a new "Discovery Guide" that promotes hunting, fishing, camping and sightseeing. Mickey Hodgkiss with the Choteau Chamber of Commerce says plenty of people pass through on their way to Glacier National Park, but they'd like to become a destination location all on their own, and the new guide maps out visitors' many options.

"It gives you a broad view of where things go; how to get into the Teton and the Sun River areas, business, agriculture, and all that incorporates the Front."

Hodgkiss says promoting tourism adds to the economic base of the area without harming the natural and cultural significance of the Front.

"It has such an unusual view -- no foothills or anything blocking it -- and there are so many great ways to get back into the wilderness through this area."

The "Rocky Mountain Front Discovery Guide" is available from the Choteau Chamber of Commerce.
