Which Awesome Montana Attraction Is The Biggest ‘Tourist Trap?’
Tourist Traps Don't Get Much Bigger And Better Than This
When it comes to tourist traps, I feel I have a good eye for what ones are worth stopping at and what ones are literally traps.
Now, Montana doesn't have any where near the same number of tourist traps as our neighbor to the east has.
That doesn't mean there aren't a few places that are looking to "trap" tourists into stopping and spending a few bucks.
Locals Love It, Tourists Hate It
It's no surprise that when it came to South Dakota they picked Wall Drug.
It's also not a shock that for Montana they picked the 50,000 Silver Bar.
Here's their reasoning behind their choice,
Anytime a place has a claim to fame like "state's largest gift shop," it's probably a tourist trap. If it has a restaurant and a gas station? It's probably a tourist trap. 50,000 Silver Dollar Bar in Haugan, Montana? It has all three. And two casinos, two bars, and a convenience store. The name is derived from the massive silver dollar collection you're surrounded by inside the bar itself.
Today there are well over 80,000 silver dollars, but in our opinion 50,000 just sounds better.
