    Montana is very casual. Missoula is the most liberal of all Montana cities. It has a university with many International students. 99% of the population is very friendly and nice to all people and races. It is one of the safest places to visit in the world. It is also one of the most beautiful small cities.

    Montana is mostly farming and ranching but has turned to tourism recently. Don't be surprised if you find very few Enviromentalists or Vegetarians. The ones you do meet are mostly 'Imports' (non-native Montanans(not born here to a native family or have lived here less than 30 years))

    Montanans are generally a very friendly bunch of folks. They arent very politically correct and do believe in minding their own business. There is sort of an unspoken motto in Montana. ' Dont bother me and I wont bother you.'

    Just like any other American state, except that Montana is cleaner than most. Still fresh and natural. Breathe......

  • Don't be in a hurry. ...

    Don't be in a hurry. Montanans are very friendly but figure you are here to relax, so SLOW DOWN! It is rude to ask a rancher the size of his spread or the number of cattle he runs. Leave your ego at home--no one will be impressed with who you are.

    Montana has a number of Indian Reservations and they offer a great way to learn about the culture of the indigenous people of the area. The Museum of the Plains Indians in Browning, Montana, near Glacier National Park is very worthwhile.

    Helena has an excellent system for careing for her homeless. While living there I knew there were homeless, but they all had a warm bed, a shower, and a hot meal every night it seemed because Montana winters are harsh and no place for the homeless. habitat for Humanity must have done one very good job!

    Be very quiet around the bighorn sheep. Even a slight paddlestroke to get a closer view can disturb them.
