Bozeman has many of the restaurants and retailers that you would expect to see in much larger towns. The schools are very good with high levels of achievement at the grade school, middle school, and high school levels. Recreation can be found within an hour of Bozeman in any direction.. be it skiing, fishing, camping, hiking, or boating. There has been considerable population growth in Bozeman being fed by folks moving from other parts of the country. Whether that is good or bad depends upon your perspective. I will say that Bozeman has changed very much in the last 10 years.. it's certainly not the place I attended school 25 years ago.
Helena is a growing community that is the center of our state government. Well planned growth makes it a good choice. Missoula is in a beautiful part of the western part of the state. It is different from most of Montana with its political leanings. I reside in Billings, the largest city in the state that is currently thriving with commercial and business growth.

My husband was born and raised in MI and tells me that Bozeman is a lot like upper MI.
