Do not believe everything that you read. Blgs is a pretty good town to live in. There are a lot of things to do in Blgs and a lot of variety in culture. There are some great resturants and fabulous grocery stores. My brother & his family live on the south side and in their area of the south side the crime is very low. The heights, west end, north park all have their crime problems. Take a look at BillingsGazette.com :: , they have a part in their about crime in Blgs and a breakdown of where it happens. I will agree that the resale of a house on the south side compared to the west end isn't going to be great, but you can get a lot of house for less money there too and some great neighbors as well. If you need information on home schooling the County Superintendant of Schools is where you would need to start. Their number is 1-406-256-6933. In Montana they are in charge of the home school programs. There are also a lot of private schools in Blgs that are pretty great. Right now the big drama in Blgs is the police department and some of the corruption and the cost to rebuild Cobb Field. Neither is much of a problem to the average citizen though. There are several great book stores, Barnes & Noble, Hastings, Borders & most do offer children's times. Parmly Library is a nice library, the building is a little out of date but it's contents and employees are not. There is the Yellowstone Art Museum, Zoo Montana, and lots of other civic things. There are two colleges, MSU-Billings & Rocky Mountain College, both of which have offerings for younger kids. Look for the Billings Chamber of Commerce web site or Montana Tourism Gateway for more information

Smile Looking better all the time!

I don't normally remark on the postings others make on this venue, but I must interject an opinion. My wife and I are retirees, now living in the Ozarks, originally from Central California, looking for a better climate for our retirement. We like what we have found about Billings. The remarks uttered by "WOW", and the responses to her, have only cemented our desire to live there.
