MT Posted in Montana May 09, 2016 by Jessica Wick 10 Reasons Living In Montana Is The Best – And Everyone Should Move Here Did we get your attention with that title? We sure hope so, because we all know how everyone in Montana REALLY feels about more people moving to The Last Best Place. So do yourselves a favor and show this list to all the out-of-staters you know who keep talking about moving here. Because Montana is the best, so of course everyone should move here… wink, wink. 1. It’s freezing cold all the time. tiraslee / Flickr Everyone knows that Montana winters are 10 months long, minimum. All those photos you see of beautiful days are taken during our very brief “summer” to entice tourists to visit. This is great news for everyone in warm climates who are sick of the hot, muggy weather. Move here and scrape ice off your car’s windows every day. 2. There are grizzly bears everywhere. Ny / Flickr Grizzlies roam the streets in Montana, even in the bigger cities. So if you love wildlife, you’ll definitely love it here. Just don’t get too close… if you can help it. 3. There are also many, many rattlesnakes. Daniela Bergmann / Flickr Have you ever wondered how you would have done in the wild, wild west? This is your chance to find out. We’ve got rattlesnakes all around us, so if you live here and never get a bite, you’ll definitely earn bragging rights. 4. There is no WiFi in Montana. Adam Freidin / Flickr There’s hardly any internet, really. It’s the perfect place to get away from it all. 5. There’s a supervolcano below Yellowstone National Park that could erupt at any time and wipe the state (and several others) out. Nicholas Trandem / Flickr Why would this entice anyone to move to Montana, you ask? Because if that happens while you’re living here, you’ll instantly become a part of history. You’ll be part of something huge and your legacy will live on. What could be more exciting than that? 6. There are hardly any people here. Shutter Runner / Flickr Need to get away from it all? You will in Montana! You won’t see anyone else on your street, around your house, at the grocery store, when your truck breaks down on the side of the road… living in Montana is like being in solitary confinement all the time. It’s amazing. 7. Most of the roads aren’t paved. Brett Whaley / Flickr That’s right, we’re a real life country music song come to life when it comes to our old dirt roads. It’ll be just like the good old days! 8. You’ll get plenty of chances to ride your horse. selsk06 / Flickr You own a horse, right? That’s a requirement in Montana and is part of the state driving test. If you don’t know how to ride, you’ll want to learn before you move. The sooner the better. 9. You’ll be in great shape from all the hard work you do. Ranch Seeker / Flickr In Montana, you prove yourself by working long, hard hours. Get up before dawn and work on a ranch and you’ll fit right in here. It will be great. 10. You will get to try new foods. Wally Gobetz / Flickr You probably already know that everyone in Montana eats tons of meat (sorry, vegetarians, you’re out of luck). But they also eat things like bull testicles. There are even a few Testicle Festivals. So you’ll have that to look forward to. We hope these reasons are enough to convince everyone to move to the beautiful state of Montana. Wink, wink.
