Under the big sky of Montana, along the Yellowstone River, is the small town of Billings, which happens to be the largest city in the state. In Montana, people are outnumbered by animals, and not just at ZooMontana. The state has, on average, about 2.5 cows per person, more than almost any other state in the U.S.
Perhaps it is this connection with wildlife that keeps stress levels down across the state. But WalletHub found financial stress is lower in Billings than most cities, too, with fewer bankruptcies and foreclosures than most.
Without the burden of stress, residents and visitors can enjoy the great outdoors, as well as the landmark Moss Mansion Museum, Yellowstone Art Museum and Yellowstone Cellars & Winery — the latter of which can definitely provide for a relaxing afternoon!
