Relocating to Helena Montana is a smart move
It doesn't take long to see why Helena is the smart choice for the state capital. Centrally located, Helena rests at the base of the continental divide and close to just about anything you'd want to do. It not only boasts the simple Montana quality of life, but also includes:
•fly-fishing the Missouri,
•hiking Mount Helena
•boating on Canyon Ferry Lake
•skiing 30 minutes from town
•strolling through the historical Last Chance Gulch and taking in the architecture
•annual festivals of art, music and food
•no traffic, no crowds
Or enjoy your evenings at restaurants, theatres, or museums. There's so much more to explore... there's something for everybody!
Whether you want to live in a downtown condo and be in the middle of it all or enjoy the charm of the mansion district, within walking distance to Last Chance Gulch and hiking trails. You may even decide to purchase your own piece of the Rocky Mountains just out of town, with an acre or two for elbow room, horses and panoramic views. Helena has "it", the "it" factor of small town life, tree lined streets, good schools and great community spirit. Yet, you still have the option of hitting the road and taking a daytrip to Missoula, Bozeman, Great Falls and Butte or take an overnighter to Yellowstone Park, Billings, Glacier Park or the Kalispell-Whitefish area.
Those are the obvious reasons why you would want to relocate to Helena. Another hidden benefit is the stable economy. Helena does not have the ups and downs of other cities. Helena's economic stability is largely due to state government that employs some 7,000 state employees as well as offices of federal agencies and many corporate offices of larger businesses that are based in Helena. The majority of this workforce is professional, white-collar workers, and employees of small businesses.
