SMALL TOWN LIVING AT ITS FINEST
The most difficult decision that Helena residents face is which direction to head on the weekend. With 4 lakes located within a 30-minute drive and the trout-filled Missouri river tracing the outline of the valley, Helena is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream come true. Access over 80 miles of hiking/biking trails from downtown, explore an old ghost town or enjoy the quiet serenity of the Elkhorn Mountains.
The outdoor opportunities are varied and endless, and there’s something unique to do each season. Whether it’s ice skating in the winter, fishing in the spring, hiking in the summer, or hunting in the fall, Helena has it all.
While Helena has unparalleled access to outdoor recreation, life in town is just as rich. Known as the “Best Small Art Town in America,” Helena has a magnitude of cultural events to appreciate, such as the annual Symphony Under the Stars and the “Ales for Trails” fundraiser.
Simply stated, life in Helena is small town living at its finest.
The Magic City
Known as Montana’s trailhead, Billings has something for everyone. The economy is strong, the crime rate is low, and the community welcomes newcomers with open arms.
Billings, Montana’s largest and busiest city, provides the conveniences of city living in a beautiful setting. The Billings landscape was shaped by the mighty Yellowstone River and is now sheltered by the iconic “Rims”. With 150,000 people in Yellowstone County, residents have access to dining and entertainment options as diverse as the Yellowstone ecosystem itself.
Though Billings is the largest city between Denver, CO and Calgary, AB peace and quiet are easy to find. Hike in Yellowstone National Park, drive the Beartooth Highway, explore the pictograph caves and marvel at Pompey’s Pillar.
Life in Billings is fast and fun or slow and steady. There is something for everyone in this vibrant, cultural center.
The City Of Trees
BIG CITY CONVENIENCE, SMALL TOWN COMMUNITY
Nestled in the Treasure Valley against the majestic foothills, Boise is part of a thriving metropolitan area of over 550,000 people. Boise is the largest metropolitan area in Idaho, and also the most remote metropolitan area in the United States, fostering a “unique sense of community.”
Situated where the high desert meets the western edge of the Rocky Mountains, Boise is the gateway to exceptional recreational opportunities including: world famous white-water rafting, Nordic and Alpine skiing, snowboarding, hunting, fishing, backpacking, and camping. Hiking, biking, and fishing are popular activities right in the metro area, accessible by miles of greenbelt along the Boise River. The foothills provide trails for hikers and bikers of all abilities.
Quality of life, low cost of doing business, an educated and motivated workforce, and the presence of numerous post-secondary educational institutions provide valley companies with a healthy environment in which to do business. The economy is a healthy mix of business, education, healthcare, retail, manufacturing, government, military and professional communities.
