As we celebrate National Travel and Tourism Week 2024 with our first official Tourism Week here in Billings, we wanted to take this opportunity to introduce the amazing Visit Billings team. Today features Aly Eggart, Leisure Marketing Director.

What’s your favorite thing about working in the travel & tourism industry?

I love getting to see Billings through the eyes of our visitors, especially those visiting for the first time. It always makes me so grateful to call Billings home.

What’s your favorite ‘hidden gem’ in the city of Billings?

I think our food scene feels like a hidden gem so often. Especially our food trucks. We have some absolutely amazing food trucks and so many of them. It makes each event so unique and fun because you never know what options you will have and they all do a great job.

If you could give one piece of advice to a first time visitor to Billings, what would you let them know?

Go for a walk. Whether it’s downtown, along the river, at the Zoo or atop the Rims. Billings is an awesome city to slow down and take in a stroll with views.

When you think of the phrase “quintessentially Billings,” what comes to mind?
