We constantly hear about how many people come to Montana every summer. Whether they are visiting one of the colleges, checking on family, or doing the tourist thing, people flock here by the hundreds of thousands, literally.

According to the latest 2023 poll, Montana is actually ranked in the Top 5 WORST Places to visit this summer.

Some of you are going to be thrilled about this!
