Pluses: Beautiful scenery, close proximity to the mountains, as well as Yellowstone National Park.
Billings has grown to be a thriving metropolitan community with a small town atmosphere.
Minuses: In certain times of the year, the air in some parts of town carries the smell of nearby oil refineries and the sugar factory. Another minus is that it takes a long time to get to Billings, from pretty much anywhere. But Billings does make a nice stop-over if you're headed farther out west.
A good place to... Receive medical treatment, stop on the way to somewhere else, learn about the history of the region, raise a family, buy a car (no sales tax in Montana!) etc.
