I've always had a very good time when I've spent time in Helena. There's a ton of fun to be had on the area lakes AND they had several great restaurants that I enjoyed very much.

(I've always had good luck at the Silver Star Steak Co. if you're interested!)
The thing I enjoyed most about Helena is their mix of old and new buildings, much like Bozeman. You'll be able to see some of that architectural mix in this drone video.
