Community

Welcome to Laurel, Montana

The best city in the State of Montana. I personally invite you to visit our community and to experience life the way it should be. Our downtown is friendly, quaint, and diverse. We are both visitor and business friendly. Laurel is in a period of unprecedented building and development, which is bringing our quality of life to new highs. We offer specialty shops, fine dining, and top rated accommodations. Our City parks offer camping, fishing, tennis courts, basketball courts, skateboarding, playground equipment, swimming, and more. Laurel is located on the banks of the majestic Yellowstone River in the center of a wide range of places to visit, sites to see, and activities to partake in. Within one hour’s drive, we offer blue-ribbon trout fishing, the Beartooth Wilderness, hiking, biking, sight-seeing, and skiing. We are located just 15 miles from the largest municipality in the region and 114 miles from Yellowstone National Park. The City of Laurel is a great place to live. Browse through our web site and see first hand what we have to offer. Better yet, come and visit us in person. You’ll not regret the occasion.
