When visiting any small town, it's important to be respectful of the local residents if you want to ensure a positive experience.

Most places in Montana are friendly and welcoming, and most Montanans are always willing to lend a helping hand when others are in need. The last thing you want to do is get on their bad side. As the population of Montana continues to grow, it's inevitable that small-town populations will continue to grow as well.

Montana has a rich history and culture, and if you plan on visiting or moving here, you need to respect that. Being respectful goes a long way in Montana. If you want to survive living in Big Sky Country, here are a few things to avoid.
