Montana’s third largest city is a marketing center with good air and highway connections. Grand vistas can be found in every direction; Great Falls is surrounded by mountains and buttes on three sides, as well as vast plains to the north. The city, with its midwestern flavor, straddles the Missouri River, which meanders toward a natural falls on the northeastern edge of town.
