In addition to being the setting of “A River Runs Through It,” Missoula is home to the University of Montana. Tailgating for Griz home football games is a Saturday tradition in the fall, as are springtime days of sunshine illuminating the newly greened trees. Throughout the year, the University brings in cultural events, historic exhibits, and major entertainment. Longtime residents, families, professors, and students inhabit the blocks around the campus proper making it a true community melting pot. The proximity to UM’s activities is a decided plus for these neighbors. From evening lectures to concerts to basketball games, if you’re looking for something to do it’s all right here in the U area. There’s an open-minded attitude among the neighborhood along with a strong sense of community.
