Tourism has always been a big part of Butte's economy.  From our world-famous St. Patrick's Day celebration to our incredible Historic District and not to mention the incredible array of outdoor splendor and all it offers, there is literally something for everybody in the Mining City.  Even if Butte isn't your intended destination, we sit at the crossroads of two major interstates with gorgeous national parks at opposing ends.  So even if you're on your way to Glacier, or Yellowstone, or even somewhere else like Seattle or Las Vegas. chances are pretty good that you'll be passing through the Mining City.  And when you're here, you'll probably be stopping to gas up and grab a cold beverage.  Maybe even a meal and a room for the night.

It is with this in mind that the Butte Chamber of Commerce is hosting a "Super Hero Workshop" for any interested front-line workers who come into regular contact with visitors to our city.  The workshop will equip you with the tools to educate visitors on where to stay and eat.  Where to shop.  What unique local attractions we have to offer.  It will be taking place in the conference room of the Butte Comfort Inn on Tuesday, May 7th.  There will be two sessions to choose from, one from 9am to 10:30am and the other from 11am until 12:30pm.  Prizes will be given away throughout the day.
