East Missoula Reviews

East Missoula has been a laid back part of town for me. I live on a very mellow street with little traffic. The only negative experience I have had is a couple strangers wandering in to my yard. I went up to them and kindly asked the men laying in my yard to leave and they were respectful. I wouldn't suggest living on a street where you can see the highway, it can be quite noisy at times between traffic and the train going by.
