What Bert Has To Say About Billings Metro Area

Montana’s largest city, Billings is a growing cultural and business center for a large area in Montana and northern Wyoming. Since the days of Lewis and Clark, it has also served as a transportation gateway between the plains to the east and the mountain areas to the west. The area is characterized by the dramatic landscape to the west, pleasant summer weather, and a strong Western flavor. Not unlike other mountain towns Boise, Spokane and Reno, the combination of local services, small town flavor, the setting and recreational opportunities draw some permanent migrants, retirees, and seasonal population, and provides some employment servicing these groups.
