Sidney, Montana is a beautiful and quiet little city right between Glendive, Montana and Williston, North Dakota. The city of Sidney was incorporated just a year after Montana became a state, 1911. The city has since experienced various economic booms, mostly related to the oil industry. In the 1970s and 1980s the city experienced an influx of people due to the oil industry, and it has since relied on this industry for its local economy. In addition to the oil business, the city of Sidney relies heavily on agriculture such as sugar beets crops and cattle ranches, to support the local economy. Sidney doesn’t have much in terms on tourist attractions or things to do, it’s mostly a working town for farmers and ranchers. However, with Williston, North Dakota so close by, you can take a short drive up to Sakakawea Lake and enjoy the many recreational activities that it offers.
The weather in Sidney is similar to that of the rest of Montana. You can expect dry hot summers, however the snowfall here isn’t as extreme as other parts of the state. You won’t find much skiing and winter activities in Sidney, near like you do in most other places around the state of Montana. This town is just for working and making a simple living.
