Livingston is anot eccentric little town located at the base of the absaroka bear tooth mountain range. There is quick access to a great number of outdoor activities, such as hiking, fishing and sightseeing. I love my little town! The night life is pretty active in the summer and in the winter you are garenteed to find a local sitting on the barstool next to you! Livingston is a good place to own a home. The schools areally pretty good and the sense of community is amazing!

Livingston is a beautiful and historic town. It has been able to retain most of the historical downtown buildings and Railroad Station. For a smaller town or also has three museums! To top it off, Livingston is also one of the gateways to Yellowstone National Park.
Livingston is located in a beautiful (though windy) area of Montana and is close to some of the most widely sought after outdoor destinations, including Yellowstone National Park. Livingston is the perfectly sized small town that is rich in history and an adventure to explore. I have lived here since I was two and this town will always be my home. From this experience, I have come to appreciate the wide open space of Montana, while also forming a close knit community of friends and family to share life with.
