Missoula Montana is the second largest city in the state and the home of the University of Montana. It has many parks and various cultural activities. “A River Runs Through It” was set in nearby Blackfoot River, although it was filmed elsewhere in Montana. This small but growing town of over 73,000 excels at outdoor activities and recreation due to the many rivers and mountains in this part of Montana. The college town environment gives the Missoula plenty of youthful energy. The town is proud to have a number of micro breweries.
