Living in Billings

Montana's Largest City
Billings is the medical, financial and trade center of our three-state area. Nestled in the Yellowstone River valley on the east slope of the Rockies, Billings is framed on three sides by scenic mountain ranges. The Rimrocks, 300 to 500 foot high sandstone cliffs, form a landmark border to the north and east, and the Yellowstone River flows serenely past the city's southern edge.

Montanans have the luxury of vacationing where they live and work. Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. World class fly fishing in blue ribbon trout streams. Miles of wilderness trails. Whitewater rafting. Snowmobiling. Three ski resorts less than three hours away.
