Montana’s largest city lies below the Rimrocks of the Yellowstone River Valley. Here, vast ranches, farmland and stockyards are situated just outside the conveniences of a modern city. Billings features broad, tree-lined avenues, and the metropolitan flavor of Montana’s tallest buildings. Billings is easily accessible by air or interstate highway.
