Owner description: The main street in the downtown business district, which takes its name from the four prospectors who discovered gold there in 1864.

Nice place to browse some interesting shops and grab an ice cream. If this mall was in a bigger city it would be crawling with people. As it is it's just a sleepy place with some interesting shops and nice old architecture.

Most stores are closed on a Sunday though.

It is my "little city" walk about location. Be sure to read the historical markers on the buildings as well. It will "frame" your stay in MT, especially Helena.
Very interesting story as to how "Last Chance Gulch" got its name.

We visited the Walking Mall several times. The city has done a very nice job laying out the area. Take a stroll, sit and watch the locals and visitors, eat at one of several restaurants and end with a homemade ice cream cone at the Big Dipper.

...if I could actually have visited when anything was open. We visited on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon. Almost everything along the pedestrian mall was closed. There were a handful of other confused travelers bout otherwise, Last Chance Gulch was pretty much a ghost town.
