Life Is Still Simple In These 9 Pleasant Salt-Of-The-Earth Montana Towns
Montana is known as the Last Best Place for a reason — we believe in keeping life simple and peaceful. And while modern advances have turned some of our cities into contemporary meccas, you’ll still find plenty of good old-fashioned slow paced charm here in the Treasure State. Visit one of these towns and you’ll enjoy a more laid back vibe.
This small Blaine County city feels a bit like a smaller, even more laid back version of the nearby railroad town of Havre. Home to the Blaine County Museum and the Bears Paw Battlefield, it's a great place to visit if you're into local history.
Visiting Scobey feels a bit like a breath of fresh air for the soul. Not only will you meet some of the friendliest folks in Montana, you can check out the Daniels County Museum & Pioneer Town, which truly feels like a trip back in time.
There's no doubt that Libby has been through a lot. But these days, the city is nice and clean, and the locals enjoy a nice, peaceful way of life.
It's pretty much impossible not to fall in love with Choteau, the Gateway to the Rocky Mountain Front. It charmed David Letterman so much he bought a ranch here, but you don't have to be a talk show host to know how picturesque and pleasant it is.
There's not much to the town of Sheridan, and that's exactly the way the locals like it. Located on the banks of the Ruby River in the heart of the Ruby River Valley, this little spot makes a great place to stay if you'd like to explore Virginia City and Nevada City.
If you feel like you need to get away from it all, just move to Winnett. It's the only town in Petroleum County, but with a population of 185, it's hardly bustling.
As the first permanent settlement in the state, Stevensville has a nice, nostalgic vibe. And despite the fact that it's overflowing with small town charm, the community is thriving.
8. Cooke City
Maybe it's because it's located on the most scenic drive in America, or perhaps it's because it's a gateway to Yellowstone. But whatever it is that makes Cooke City so amazing, the 200 or so locals know it, and they're usually happy to see their visitors.
Looking for cowboy country? Look no further than Jordan, famous both for its fossils and its lingering Old West flavor.
These charming towns prove you don’t need a lot of big city amenities to enjoy a great life. But if you’re looking for a little more excitement,
these Montana towns offer something for everyone.
