Hi; I lived in Billings, Montana for 8 years; just relocated back to Southern California last June. I've been to Roundup once in the 8 years I lived there. Not much of a town; very small. 50 or so miles out of Billings. Never been to Saco.

What do you want to know? I think you'd get more of a response if you asked more specific questions.

Saco is much further out in the middle of nowhere than Roundup. Saco's okay...really out in the sticks. Roundup is a nice little town (about 2000) people, and Billings is not too far away. I'd live there. It's got a great little diner.

Oops sorry,
I am looking for a small town for my husband and I can retire to,
we don't need all the conviences-but at the same time I would feel better if there were a mom/pop store nearby.
We don't plan to retire for another 5-7 years, we are looking for a small house -even a handy-man special that we could afford to buy now -and somehow manage to have it paid off when the time comes.
The real estate seems to fit our budget in those area's -
What I need to know....
How is life in these areas? Nice people? Trees?
We are kinda keep to yourself folk -don't need any entertainment,
senior centers etc....
Thank you so much!

Default Saco

Just a comment that if you are looking for quiet country living in wide open spaces without mountains, all the 'entertainment' things, enjoy hunting and fishing, want a low cost of living, friendly folk, good values, strong community and schools --- then any of the areas in NE Montana will fit your needs. Saco has little or no business other than bar, antique store, post office and small convience store. You would need to drive 45 minutes to get to a grocery store etc. Always good to come see for yourself!

Family...............both my husband and me grew up in the San Diego area; we left California twice before (once to Oregon, came back; last time to Santa Fe and then Montana and came back last June). Our 17 y/o son said when he graduated from high school he was moving to California since he loved the beaches. We wanted to be close to him and also close to extended family. Nice to drive 60 miles to see family on holidays as opposed to a plane ticket, etc.

All good reasons I was just wondering. I am hoping my kids will want to go with us, rather than give us a hard time about moving. Guess I'll wait and see.

I will be there in July, just putting together some sort of plan of destination.
Just by reading all the post I am able to put together our route.
Thank you so much for all of your help
