I am looking to relocate to MT in the near future. I love the outdoors, my horses and a very quiet stress free life. I will be looking to liquidate assets here in the near future and start over in MT. Looking for a small town where I can get away from the coporate world and go back to my roots of slower life and country living. Being a small town waitress is just fine with me! Sounds fairy tale right? Well, its what I want. Meeting a strong country man wouldnt hurt either! lol

Were would you all suggest the perfect spot for me to restart a new life would be... considering my criteria?

Thanks!

Nothing wrong with a fairytale if that's what you want. BTW, I just read this internet list of top 25 most miserable cities. I'm sad to see that Ohio made the list 3 times! I had no idea. It can't be that bad, can it? That is a state I'm interested in visiting, actually. I would love the see the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.

If you want a small town, I think somewhere near Lewistown might be interesting. That's very close to the middle of the state. We always go through there on our way to visit relatives in the midwest. I think that's a cute little city. Livingston down by Butte and Bozeman is cute. My grandma lived in St. Regis for a short time. She never mentioned how she liked it though.

Just a few ideas of places you can research.

Default Thanks

Thanks for your information! Yeah, it is not good here. I use to be a military wife, so I have lived many places. And, I have to say this is the worst place I have ever lived. I am so ready for a huge life change. I looked at your list of 20 worst cities and found Ohio was on it 4 times.. nice.

Are you going to want to live near or in the mountains? How are are you willing to be from shopping, medical, etc...?

Basically, it's Mountains in the West and agricultural to the East. Of course, that means expensive in the West and more reasonable to the East.

Actually, Ohio made that list 5 times! Cleveland, Dayton, Akron, Toledo and Youngstown. Yes, it really is that bad. I was born there and am SOOOOO glad to get out to beautiful Montana. The Rock N Roll Hall of Fame is cool but... visit, sure, live - NO.

Good luck to you Amelia!

Elk Hunter,, I dont mind being far away from it all as long as I can still eat and work. I would love to be near the mountains.. but I guess what I lookng for is a simple way of life. To have Drs. shopping (and I dont mean malls, I mean food and basics. I am a thrift store person so malls do not interest me at all!) at least at my reach when they are needed and to be able to work. An hours drive to these things do not scare me.
