Day 1: Billings - Angry Hank's Brewery, Carter's Brewing, Montana Brewing, and Yellowstone Valley Brewing
Stay in downtown Billings and plan on checking into your hotel early enough to leave time for an unhurried pub crawl to the Magic City's four breweries, all only a few blocks apart. Leave your vehicle at the hotel and take off on foot. If you like to eat first, start at Montana Brewing, eat there, then take after-dinner stroll to other three breweries. If you like your beer first, start at Angry Hank's or Carter's, with Yellowstone Valley in between, and finish at Montana Brewing for dinner. (For more details, go to the Billings Brewery Trail section on this website.)

If you have time before or during your walking tour, stop at the Western Heritage Center, only a block south of Montana Brewing on Montana Avenue. It has some great photo galleries (both historic and contemporary), plus a variety of regional exhibits and art collections on display. You can take a guided or self-guided tour, but only between 10 am-5 pm, Tuesday through Saturday.
You can also take a two-block detour north on 27th Street to visit the Yellowstone Art Museum, which opens at 11 am and stays open until 4-8 pm depending on the day (closed on Monday). Check the museum website for exact hours and current exhibits.
