For years, Montana has been called "The Last Best Place".

It's a state full of small towns where people know each other by their first names. It's a place where a 10-minute trip to the local grocery store turns into an hour because you run into 2 or 3 people that you know, and you end up talking for 30 minutes while standing in the produce aisle. It's one of the many attractive features of living here in Montana.

Of course, some towns might not be as "Old School" as others, towns like Bozeman and Missoula are a little more "Hollywood" than Montana, and while that might be fine for some folks, for others, they prefer the Old Montana opposed to the New Montana.
