You Can Live in Montana Like they Do on “Yellowstone!”

Have you been watching the new television show with Kevin Costner?

It’s official. The television show, “Yellowstone,” is a big hit, and we think it’s because of the beautiful area and people the show highlights.

In fact, did you know that they filmed a lot of this series right here in the Bitterroot Valley to show how people live in Montana and the local area?

What is the Television Series About?

If you’re not familiar with the new series, Kevin Costner stars as John Dutton, the head of the Dutton family.

The show focuses on how the family interacts and struggles with a local Indian reservation, land developers and Yellowstone, America’s first, official national park.

Live in Montanan and Be a Montana local!A recent article in, “‘Yellowstone’ Becomes Second Most Watched Scripted Series On Basic Cable, Hits New Ratings Highs,” by Nellie Andreeva comments on this.

It states, “the series premiere of Yellowstone drew nearly 5 million viewers in Live+3, making it the top summer drama series debut on cable or broadcast.”

Not only is the show written and performed well, but it shows the beautiful scenery and people of Montana.

You can read more of the details of how they used real log cabins and location shots in the local area to set the tone and scenes for the show here.

Live in Montana like they do on “Yellowstone.”

If you are a fan of this new series like we are, we’d love to show you more of this beautiful area.

While people flock to the popular ski attractions and big cities nearby like Bozeman and Whitefish, the Bitterroot Valley has some great destinations that offer the same great outdoor activities, shopping and entertainment, but without the crowds, noise and traffic.

For example, you can live in Hamilton, Montana and enjoy living in a luxurious log cabin steps away from world-class fly fishing, hiking, skiing, and more.
