Why not stop for a week in a quaint small town? Find a sweet little place to stay in a faraway place, and just enjoy what the town has to offer. And so we did. We found Livingston, Montana.
Months earlier we had arranged our stay there, reserving a quaint AirBnB cottage located right in town. After check-in, we realized that it was so nice that we just wanted to hang out there. Our host, Lauren, told us about the Farmers Market in the nearby Sacajawea Park that very day. With food the incentive, we headed on over.
Food offerings were eclectic, and what we tried was very good: mac ‘n cheese with lobster; sweet rolls for the next morning’s breakfast.
Each day we walked in different neighborhoods, seeing the old Livingston as well as the new.
Our walks led us to thrift stores, galleries, and antique stores. We added books to the town’s “little library.” We strolled through neighborhoods and in parks.
Livingston offered us the chance to slow down and stay awhile. It was relaxing and scenic. Not a bit stressful. Something to consider for a future trip…
