#14 Alissa Marie I love the people I love the fact no matter where I go; there’s family down the block. I wish we had a Burlington Coat Factory and a Cheesecake Factory.
#15 Erin Ferrell: What do I love? The generosity of individuals and business – Billings people are always donating time and money to help others. I love the community involvement and the minds of all of the leaders (varying age ranges) that come together to brainstorm on how we can make this place even better. We have world class healthcare, we have amazing chefs and restaurants, and we are close to major cities all along an interstate. There really isn’t anything that I don’t like, come to think of it. :)=
#16 I spoke with Dr. Derek Simpson, who has been a Chicago-native for 30+ years, thinks everyone in the West-End section of Billings, MT is pretty nice. The area is not as busy and still very convenient. People move a little slower in Billings, in comparison to a larger city. Dr. Derek always liked the Westend more then the Heights, but he says he never had a reason to go to the northern section of Billings. Things are little more conservative and the situation in Billings is a lot less progressive, but it is representative of classic Montana with modern conveniences. Great place to live he thinks.
