Montana Retirement Information

Montana appeals to many outdoors oriented active adults over 55. It offers a varied climate, some of the greatest scenery in the world, and unlimited recreation opportunities like riding, hunting, fishing, golf, and hiking.

For those who crave the wide open spaces of the American west, it is a less crowded and less expensive retirement. The cost of living is just below the national average and there is no sales tax.

Montana is dubbed the Treasure State for its majestic mountain ranges, famous parks, crystal clear rivers and lakes. Residents routinely visit the world-famous Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, ski at one of the many unpretentious and relatively uncrowded peaks such as Bridger Bowl and Big Mountain, or fly-fish in the great Bitterroot or Yellowstone Rivers.

As of 2012, Montana's population was 989,415 people.
