When I visited Missoula, MT at the age of ten, I had gone to visit a close aunt during my summer vacation. The city of Missoula was a bustling, mountainous area that was so scenic and beautiful, that it was breathtaking. I had never seen anything like it, and I am from the big city. I did not experience any crime or racism in the community of Missoula, MT. Everyone was incredibly friendly and there was a multitude of things to do. I love nature, so my aunt took me on many hiking and walking trails, while we walked her dog, Phoenix. The area is a perfect place for families that prefer their privacy. Most homes were on a hill with a lot of grass to enclose each property. Basically, no loud, disruptive neighbors, which is a plus. If country living is not your thing, I would still suggest visiting Missoula, MT, just to experience the beautiful nature and the crisp fresh air. I have never breathed such clean air in my life.

My favorite places in Missoula, MT, are the hiking and walking trails. I love looking at beautiful nature. I feel in tune when I am around nature, animals and trees. I really love it. The only bad side to Missoula, MT, is the lack of diversity. I believe if more people knew about the scenic mountains, and beautiful landscapes, more groups of diverse cultures would visit, if not to see the views, but the hike the hills and smell the air. The air smells so pure.
