The Clark Fork River runs through it, granite peaks surround it, and that famous Big Sky hangs over it all. In 2014 Outside Magazine named Missoula one of the top 10 Places to live. The area offers unlimited recreational opportunities (ski, paddle, fish or hike out your back door) and numerous cultural amenities, including a symphony and the Missoula Children's Theater, known worldwide for its great work with children in the performing arts.
