  • its a smaller city and the capital of montana (but not the biggest city). I've never lived there personally, been many times and know a few ppl who do live there. They all said it was nice, quiet. There is also a catholic college there as well.

    It isn't very big, so there is not much to do besides nature.


    PS i live in missoula, mt.

  • I grew up near Billings and moved to Helena in my teens and love it here!There isn't a ton to do, but your close to a lake (just a few miles), Mount Helena is right there for hiking (they also have those geo-search things you use a gps for). Skiing is right around the corner.Lots of nature related things like that.

    There is also the carousel and the Walking Mall (in the Great Northern Town Center). The actual 'mall' is pathetic. They just built a waterpark in Memorial Park (I haven't been yet). There also is a place called GamePods for older kids where they can play video games (from what I've heard, it's a pretty awesome place). During the summer there is Alive @ 5, which is held on Wednesdays at different parks each week that has a live local band and games.
    There is a Catholic school (isn't very big, but it's by Helena High) and there of course is Carroll College (which has a really good football team!).

  • Basically, it's a medium sized town for Montana. You can know shop owners by first name, yet go to Wal-Mart and may not see anyone you know. It's an all around good place to raise kids. People here are a lot different than even Billings and Missoula... they seem to be more on the 'small town' type, as in friendlier.

    If you have any more questions, feel free to send me a message =)
