Bozeman vs. Billings and Livingston
I plan on moving out to Montana in about a year. I was hoping to move to Bozeman but it seems to be expensive. What about Billings and Livingston. What are their cost of living compared to Bozeman.
After living in Bozeman for 5 years we decided to buy a house - Bozeman is crazy expensive however - and we ended up getting a phenomenal deal in Livingston.
It's a nice [smaller] community and only 23 miles from BZN so it's a quick jaunt over in case you need something that you can't find here... my family and I have been pleased thus far, we've now been in Livingston for 6 months, it's got all the amenities, great views, on the Yellowstone River, cheap rent or home buying, and ultimately I recommend!

Linvingston is nice, much more "real Montana" than Bozeman, this may or may not suit you. Livingston is almost always windy, too windy. Livingston is 45 minutes from Bridger Bowl, Bozeman is 20.
