Retirees have plenty of room to roam in Montana. Even though it's one of the largest states in the nation, the state has one of the smallest populations. The cost of living isn't as low here as it is in some of the other mountain states, but Montana's lack of a sales tax helps to offset some of the extra cost. The resort area of Kalispell has the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, as well as a regional medical center that ranks as one of the country's top hospitals.
