City Walks: Billings, Montana Virtual 360 Treadmill Walking Tour

We were in spending time in Billings on our way home and decided to spend a couple days exploring. There's so much more to see and do than we expected. Great breweries and restaurants, museums and indoor activities as well as trails and shopping. Tons of fun. I was able to take a morning and do a walk downtown. I think this will be the last of my 360 walking videos. They are just too much work for the results. Hope thats ok and I apologize to those who are using the goggles and vr headsets. Maybe as the technology improves I'll be able to get back to them. Thanks!

Billings, Montana Info - Pulled from Wikipedi -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billings,_Montana
Billings is located in the south-central portion of the state and is the seat of Yellowstone County, which had a 2017 population of 158,980. The 2017 Census estimates put the Billings population at 109,642, making it the only city in Montana with over 100,000 people. The city is experiencing rapid growth and a strong economy; it has had and is continuing to have the largest growth of any city in Montana. Parts of the metro area are seeing hyper growth. From 2000 to 2010 Lockwood, an eastern suburb of the city, saw growth of 57.8%, the largest growth rate of any community in Montana. Billings has avoided the economic downturn that affected most of the nation 2008–2012 as well as avoiding the housing bust. With the Bakken oil development in eastern Montana and western North Dakota, the largest oil discovery in U.S. history, as well as the Heath shale oil discovery just north of Billings, the city's growth rate stayed high during the shale oil boom. Although the city is still growing, the rate of increase has diminished markedly with oil price declines in recent years.

Billings was nicknamed the "Magic City" because of its rapid growth from its founding as a railroad town in March 1882. The city is named for Frederick H. Billings, a former president of the Northern Pacific Railroad. With one of the largest trade areas in the United States, Billings is the trade and distribution center for much of Montana east of the Continental Divide, Northern Wyoming, and western portions of North Dakota and South Dakota. Billings is also the retail destination for much of the same area. With more hotel accommodations than any area within a five-state region, the city hosts a variety of conventions, concerts, sporting events, and other rallies.

Area attractions include Pompey's Pillar, Pictograph Cave, Chief Plenty Coups State Park, Zoo Montana, and Yellowstone Art Museum. Within 100 miles are Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, Red Lodge Mountain Resort, and the Beartooth Highway, which links Red Lodge to Yellowstone National Park.

Billings is the largest city in the U.S. state of Montana, and the principal city of the Billings Metropolitan Area with a population of 170,498. It has a trade area of over half a million people.\
