The area offers unlimited recreational opportunities (ski, paddle, fish or hike out your back door) and numerous cultural amenities, including a symphony and the Missoula Children's Theater, known worldwide for its great work with children in the performing arts. Missoula is a family-oriented community with great schools (elementary through university) and social activities year round.
