Review Great Falls
Being from a city like Miami, and then moving to a small town like Great Falls, Montana was definitely a bit of a culture shock for me. But it has allowed me to see things I never even dreamed of. Not only am I a 3 hour commute from 2 of the most beautiful national parks in the country ( Yellowstone and Glacier!) but I've also been able to visit local forests and rivers and take advantage of the great outdoors!
I was born and raised in Great Falls, Montana. The town itself is an alright place if you want to have a family or if you are getting stationed there. Great Falls does have an Air Force base which does bring in a lot of different diversities which I feel is awesome because in Montana you don't see that much of different cultures like other people that are in the military. Great Falls does have some good things but also have some bad. The good things would be there is a ton of amazing outdoor activities to do during the summer and somewhat in the winter. You have fishing, hunting, golfing, trails to see the falls, Giant Springs National Park, Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, and many more. The down fall about Great Falls is there harsh winters and not that many places to eat or just hang out if its winter time or just in general. Living in Great Falls is expensive and the jobs there are good but they are low paying jobs which is hard to afford say an apartment or a house.
Retirement community high living cost, people here lack customer service skills which adds to a very unfriendly community. Most of us keep our heads down and mind our own. Housing here is hard to get approved due to fees and credit requirements. Education however is great and encouraged. Health care also is great. We have medical, gambling, gas stations, and a lot of drug addict's and mischievous criminals.
