We generally think of Montana as a place where everyone gets along.

Doesn't matter your religion, politics or if you put pineapple on a pizza, we love the company. What we don't appreciate is someone accusing us of not being friendly.

Big 7 Travel, came out with a list of the 50 Friendliest States in America and Montana is really low on the list.

We are actually ranked 36th!

The reasons they give for this ranking are:

You'll be pleasantly surprised by how warm and friendly the people of Montana are. The entire state is like a small town, despite it's size. You won't be invited into someone's home for tea but they're nice. There's light-hearted banter between the various towns with a positive attitude towards tourists and other visitors.

First off, we don't drink tea here, if we invite you home it's either going to be a beer or whiskey, deal with that.

Also, it seems they are being a bit condescending when they say we are "nice."

One thing is for sure, Montana is filled with genuine people who love hanging out and being friendly.
