I stated in a previous post that we are thinking of relocating to Montana in the next few years. What would be the best city for a conservative Christian family with two young children (currently 5 and 1)? I'm not a big-city person, but I do want some city comforts like family entertainment options (museums, skating rinks, movie theaters, etc) and, as much as I like Wal-Mart, retail options besides that. Missoula sounds like a mini version of San Francisco, but what are the suburbs like? I would also like to know about life in Great Falls, Billings and Helena. Are they more conservative? I would like to live in the central or western part of the state, preferably within a half hour drive of the aforementioned city comforts, but also near the wide open spaces and mountains this state is famous for. And while no city is immune to crime, how do the major cities in Montana rank as far as crime goes?

Have you looked through any of the threads on Montana? There is a lot of information already posted that will answer most of your questions.

Montana is very diverse and depending where you want to locate, depends on how you will be received, pay, housing, job opportunities, etc. There are not a lot of large towns. When people back east think of as a large town, they are certainly not in the same thoughts as what we think of as a large town.

Suburbs? Montana towns don't have suburbs. They have another town down the road a ways.

Haha! Funniest thing I've seen all day!

True too.. and I think is a sort of dividing line between rural and not-rural cultures.

Helena. I'm biased though, so I may be the wrong person to ask.

So what was so wrong with my most. I was being friendly and trying to be informative, and I like my town. Yes I own some property that I'm am trying to sell, but it is mine and truthfully it is the only property for sale in the area. The original post by StartOverInMT was talking about relocating to MT. I would think this was good information. It is my property and I think what I did was just fine. I'm sorry it had my realitors Icon on the bottom. I would love to have another new family of their profile in this community. I have my own christian, conservative family with 3 children. (6,4, and 1 years old).
Next time at least send me an IM or something and I will edit whatever you don't like or that offends you.
