With so many people continuing to move to Montana, many Montanans have moved or are considering moving to other places. But Montanans living in other places around the world is nothing new.

But where are the best places Montanans have lived? I lived in Maine for four years when I was in grad school and I loved my time in Portland. Growing up in the mountains, it was a refreshing change to be on the ocean (though I don't miss the smell of fish one bit). I also appreciated the proximity to cities like Boston and New York.
