What do the cities of Missoula, Montana and Havana, Cuba have in common?
As it turns out, more than you might think! Both are renowned for their physical beauty – Havana as a coastal port in a Caribbean paradise, Missoula as the epicenter of five valleys in the incomparable northern Rockies. Both places ooze the kind of appeal that attracted historical adventurers like Teddy Roosevelt and Ernest Hemingway. Each is known for a strong connection to a particular adult beverage – Havana for the mojito, Missoula for its vast array of locally-crafted beers.
And now, there’s one more thread that ties these two places together. Inspired by travels to the island nation, the adventure historians at Lewis & Clark Trail Adventures are now offering Havana-style classic car tours of Missoula! Capture the splendor of this gorgeous mountain town from the ultimate style machine: a 1957 Ford Fairlane convertible.
Would you like to cruise the markets, shops, restaurants, and drinking establishments of historic downtown Missoula? Take a leisurely drive on an outlying canyon road, with a near-certain chance of spotting wildlife? Visit the confluence of the Clark Fork and Blackfoot rivers, the latter well-known as the central character of Norman Maclean’s famed novella, A River Runs Through It (and then go visit the memorial to Maclean’s real-life father at the church he once served as pastor)?
You can do it all, and all in style. Our skilled and knowledgeable drivers have a deep passion for Missoula and the land it inhabits, and they love sharing that knowledge and experience.
