Great Falls is Montana’s gateway to a better life

Montana might be known as the Treasure State, but the real treasure is Great Falls. The third largest city in Montana, Great Falls is the perfect combination of serene (and impeccably preserved) wilderness, rich art and culture, a welcoming local community and growing industries with open jobs. We’re the definition of a work-life balance, with an emphasis on the ‘life’ part.

Who says you can’t have it all? Certainly not a Great Falls local.
