Some of the best things about living in Montana are the wide open spaces and the ability to get close to nature. It’s also easy to find peace and quiet when we need some time alone. Perhaps that’s why so many celebrities have chosen to make this their home — or even their home away from home. Montana is more than 1,200 miles from Los Angeles and 2,000 miles from New York City. It’s no surprise that when it’s time to disappear for a while, the well-heeled choose Big Sky Country. The only thing we love more is hearing about celebrities from Montana. Here are some names you might recognize, though you might not know they once called a local small city or town their home.
