Billings is the best city to live in in Montana, according to an announcement recently by MONEY Magazine. 

On their annual “Best Places to Live in Every State” ranking, they consider everything from the cost of buying a home to median household income. Specific to Billings, the magazine notes access to city conveniences amidst the vast natural landscape as well as some of the areas most notable attractions, including Yellowstone Art Museum and ZooMontana among others. 

“Rankings like this help gain significant recognition for what we as residents of Billings already know,” says John Brewer, President and CEO of the Billings Chamber of Commerce. “When talented workforce across the country seek a new place to call home, this article could help sway them to consider Billings.”

About Billings the magazine wrote: “Nicknamed ‘Montana’s Trailhead’ because of its city conveniences in the midst of a vast natural landscape, Billings allows its residents to still reap the benefits of being in Big Sky Country. The city’s almost year-round good air quality makes it one of the most pleasant cities on our list and the 0% sales tax and minimal property tax make the state’s most populous city very affordable. As for attractions, there’s the wildlife and botanical garden at ZooMontana, Yellowstone Art Museum, or the unofficial ‘brewery district,’ which offers a walkable, self-guided tour of nine breweries. Billings is also within an hour of Little Bighorn Battlefield monument and Bighorn Canyon, and is the last major city before the scenic Beartooth Highway leading into Yellowstone National Park.”

Every year, MONEY ranks the Best Places to Live in the U.S. Because of the criteria considered, some states end up being represented more than once—and others not at all. Using data from that ranking, they crunched the numbers to find the best place to live in every state. As in previous rankings, everything was considered from the cost of buying a home to median household income. The results surfaced favorite stand-bys, well-known cities, and plenty of hidden gems.

Since this year’s Best Places to Live list only considered locations with 50,000 people or more, the top picks tend to skew toward small cities or bustling suburbs. But small towns aren’t entirely left out. When five states had no places that met this year’s criteria, they considered last year’s Best Places to Live data, which included spots with populations between 10,000 and 100,000.
