Missoula offers a beautiful balance of vast geographical and social benefits, all tucked away in a gorgeous valley. Missoula is probably most well-known for its lively college campus, The University of Montana. The youthful university population provides this peaceful town with more cutting edge feel to the already relaxed setting. Missoula also offers a thriving artistic locality with community events like “First Friday”, “downtown tonight”, “out to lunch”, “Big Sky Film Festival”, and numerous art galleries. Located in western Montana, Missoula can also offer a wide variety of ways to play outside and enjoy the breathtaking landscape. For example, Missoula has an amazing ski mountain, fantastic fishing and floating on the Clark Fork and other rivers, rock climbing, and river surfing on Brennan’s wave right under the Higgins Street Bridge!
