For the most part, Montanans are incredibly kind and hospitable, but if you're not a local, you usually stick out like a sore thumb. I have been to several small towns across the state, and I have nothing but great things to say about most of them.

What is the Rudest Town in Montana?

Travel a Lot just released a list of the rudest city in every state, and they picked Cut Bank as the rudest in Montana. Most of the time, these national publications don't know what they're talking about. I mean, did the writer even visit Cut Bank before including it in the article? Probably not.

Why was Cut Bank named the Rudest Town in Montana?

Travel a Lot didn't include a lot of reasons why Cut Bank was chosen, but they did offer a brief description.

Cut Bank isn't big, but it's a dangerous place to live in Montana. In addition to having one of the highest crime rates in the state, it all struggles with economic development and education. That mix doesn't really inspire hopes of creating a polite society.


So, let me get this straight. They didn't really give any examples of people being rude. Instead, they highlighted the struggles that Cut Bank is experiencing. Personally, I've never been to Cut Bank, but one of my good friends was born and raised there, and he's one of the nicest people you'll ever meet.
