But when it comes to the BEST city to live in Montana, well, you'll get plenty of opinions.

You might even get a few arguments as to why a certain city *cough* Bozeman *cough* is no longer an option.

However, I don't think anyone would have picked the city that 24/7 Wall St. picked as the best city to live in Montana as their first choice.

It's not that we think it's a bad town, it's just we hear so much about Bozeman, Billings, Missoula, Great Falls and even Whitefish that this town just isn't thought of much.

So what city did 24/7 Wall St. pick as the best place to live in Montana?

Miles City, Montana

Here is what 24/7 Wall St. had to say as to why Miles City was their choice,

Miles City is the least expensive place to live in Montana. The city has the lowest property taxes at just $1,480 per year, as well as the least expensive median monthly housing cost at $655.

Miles City ranks as Montana's best city to live in part because it is the safest place in the state. Its violent crime rate of 104 reported incidents per 100,000 residents is less than half the rate of the next safest place in the state. Miles City also has Montana's lowest property crime rate.
