Then you won't fit in. Visitors are allowed to misbehave a little.

Occupation? Retired

Hate it, like it, love it? Usually I love Missoula. Often it frustrates me -- the politics, the arguments (probably true in any town, though).

What is the best, and the worst? The best is being able to look out my window or stand in our yard and see the mountains all around me, knowing I can be hiking up them in minutes. The worst is the ridiculously high real estate prices.

Where is the best neighborhood? Do you meant to live? I love our Lewis & Clark neighborhood -- small but solid post-WWII houses, yards that aren't big but aren't too small, being able to easily walk to stores, restaurants, and parks.

The best thing to do? Enjoy all the outdoor opportunities and then relax in a good bar or restaurant.

The worst thing to do? Sit around and whine.

Education? Do you mean what's my education or what's the best school? I have a college degree.

Best Bar? So many! My current favorites are Sean Kelly's pub or Tamarack (The 'Rack) Brewing Company, both downtown.

Worst Bar? A lot of people like the Oxford (the Ox) or Charlie B's, but they creep me out.

Best Food? Depends on what you're in the mood for -- so much to choose from. Again, I love Sean Kelly's and their Irish food. For breakfast we love Paul's Pancake Parlor.

Worst Food? Ruby's Cafe is IMHO way overrated. It's a Missoula fixture but I think it's a dirty, greasy spoon with tasteless food.

What? The Dinosaur Cafe in Charlie B's is the best cajun with dash creole food anywhere. I was listening to someone telling their visiting friends it was a dive bar. Let me assure you if you think that is a dive bar you have lived a very sheltered life.
And evidently you do not like brains with your eggs...the Ox is vintage Missoula.

You're right that I don't want brains in my eggs! :-O Yes, the Dinosaur Cafe is good but I don't get a true Cajun vibe from it. That's just me; I know a lot of people love it.

Great answers! Thanks, The education one was left open, but the answer is good! Thanks!

If I come there in early Spring, do you have a suggestion, or suggestions to what to see at that time. I think it may still be a bit of winter there, by early I mean April/May.

April is icky here. You can have sun one day and snow the next. It's still muddy and/or gray. May can be very nice and I would highly recommend visiting that month over April.

In May, the runoff is going all out so the river through town, the Clark Fork, is really roaring. It's awesome to look at but downright dangerous to be on the water at that time. You can watch the crazy kayakers at Brennan's Wave in Caras Park downtown. Hiking in the mountains can be nice but the higher elevations will still be snow-covered. I'm not sure about the fishing regulations and seasons.

  • Hate it, like it, love it? Been here all my life now, 32 years. Tired of it and getting out ASAP.

AT-AT28, how could I have forgotten the Mustard Seed restaurant? Great place. Iron Horse is a great bar to meet up with friends, too.
