Missoula stay in town or outside in Huson


My family of 6, 2 adults, 4 kids 16',14, 12, and 10. are doing a road trip thru Montana in late July/August. We will be traveling from Glacier headed to Missoula for 3 nights. We are looking to tour Missoula, fish and play in the river and town, and tour the college. Is it better to stay in town or outside town and drive in? I found a house in Huson on the river that looks nice for the kids to play and fish after sightseeing however, is twice as much as staying in town. In town I found the Staybridge suites and the Double tree Hilton. Double tree right on the water, please advise.

Thank you,

Stay in town. There are paths along both sides of the river for exploring and getting to other parts of downtown without having to drive. There are all kinds of events going on in summer that are fun to check out if you’re close by. You don’t really gain much by staying in Huson except extra travel and a bit quieter.

Thank you so much, I really appreciate the information! For our last leg of the trip would you recommend going to Virginia city, staying in Ennis for four nights to sight see, see wildlife and fish o. The Madison river? We could head south towards Hamilton and Sula area before heading home on the 15 south to California. We have been to Yellowstone. We would like a place to stay that has fishing right on the property in a scenic area.

Thank you!
