One of the most positive things about living and working in Missoula is the fact that quality of life is a coveted community investment; citizens love their parks and open spaces and the abundant recreational opportunities available. The business community here thrives because of a healthier, happier work force. Businesses are attracted to Missoula because this community gets is: A livable city benefits everyone. The fabric that weaves the tapestry of Missoula has threads of social, cultural and economic diversity, community pride, working partnerships and networks, quality recreation programs and beautiful parks, a well maintained non-motorized trail system and numerous community celebrations that all make Missoula a wonderful place to live.
