The West End
The "west end" is where the host hotel, The Billings Hotel and Convention Center is located. You'll find Rimrock Mall, Target, and other large chain stores and familiar restaurants too. Tucked in between, you can find a few local gems as well.
Even further west, you'll find one of Billings' most recent developments, Shiloh Crossing. Locally-owned boutiques can be found in this area along with Scheel's, a sporting goods store that's so much more (it has a ferris wheel, bowling lane, home decor, and more). Several restaurants are also in the area.
Grand Avenue is a popular street that goes all the way from the west to downtown. Popular eatery, The Local, can be found off of Grand along with West Park Promenade where Lucky's Market is located along with the popular boutique, Apricot Lane.
#LifeIsDowntown. In Downtown, you'll find the most densely filled area of local bars, restaurants, breweries, and shops. You'll definitely want to spend some time here.

You'll also find some great art galleries to pop into and can catch a show at the ArtHouse Cinema & Pub or Babcock Theater.
The Billings Heights
The Billings Heights is a popular residential area with easy access to the airport. Businesses in the heights serve the needs of those residing there.
