10 Great Tips If You’re Moving To Rural Montana
It takes a certain kind of person to live in the middle of nowhere, and the middle of nowhere describes most of Montana.
Montana is a special place. The scenery, the weather, and the people make it an incredible place to live year-round, although not everyone agrees. Some people move here expecting things to be like they are in the city—especially when they move into rural areas. And that is just simply not the case.
When we say rural Montana, we are talking about places where the closest towns are under 1,000 people. If you don't know, towns that size make up most of Montana. Small towns are a way of life, and Montanans respect that.
Living in a small rural town can come with its obstacles, especially for folks who decide to really live out in the sticks, but we decided to help you out.
We were checking out the This is REALLY Livingston Facebook page, and someone posted a list of advice for anyone deciding to live in rural Montana. We felt inspired by this list, so we thought we'd share some more advice.
The list had some sound advice, but we wanted to expand more about living in rural Montana. Not everywhere in Montana is like the Gallatin Valley. In areas like Wilsall or Plains, you're out there by yourself, and it can be rough for those who aren't used to those conditions.
We are here to help.
