Thirty years ago, Butte was still learning how to deal with the economic and social fallout that came with the fall of the Anaconda Company. A once bustling mining boomtown whose population had been well over 100,000 early in the twentieth century, by the 1990s it had fallen to just over 30,000. With the decline in population came urban blight. Many Uptown buildings, which once housed stores, offices and apartments were abandoned and lay dormant. The warehouse district was no exception. Right in the heart of the district is the once-bustling Great Northern Depot which was a hub of railway travel in Montana. For years it sat abandoned, although many would talk about the building's potential. But nobody took action. Until the Fisher Family came into the picture.

Over the past couple of decades, we have seen Butte flourish into one of the most fan-friendly festival cities in the Northwest. Anyone who doubts this need just attend a single event at the Montana Folk Festival, which will be coming up here in just a few short weeks. Shoot, you only need look back a few weeks to see the turnout for the annual St. Patrick's Day celebration to see what kind of a party Butte is capable of throwing. But there's one festival that is relatively new, but one that started out big and has only continued to grow. And I'm talking about Brawls and Kickstart Days.

Here in Montana, we are definitely in the heart of beef country and with that comes a certain quality. A quality you take for granted. There have been a couple of instances where I have had the good fortune of visiting a couple of higher-end steakhouses in big cities and have usually walked away thinking "it's good, but not as good as back home". Now I'm not saying by any means that these weren't delicious steaks. I'm just saying that some of the best steaks in the world can be found right here in Butte. Here are a few places that I believe have the best steaks in town. In fact, I'll put any one of these four places up against anyone in the world.

We recently caught up with local forester and outdoor recreationalist extraordinaire, Jocelyn Dodge and she shared some great news for those experiencing a bit of cabin fever. "Thompson Park is now open for the summer from 8 AM to 9 PM through Labor Day," she told us. But with the warm weather comes more active wildlife. "It’s also bear and tick season and bears are beginning to come out of hibernation and will be looking for food."
