Missoula carries a well-known slogan you can see on the beer cap above. The home to the University of Montana is, as one Montanan told us, "filled with hippies, brooding artist, poets, microbrewers, bike commuters, river surfers, and so much more. All around town, you'll see 'Keep Missoula Weird' stickers. Though it's a blatant rip-off of Austin's slogan, it still rings true."
We could have gone the easy route here and told you Omaha is the only urban center in the state, and is home to the College World Series AND Warren Buffett. But you want oddball? Try this little town that gets as close to Peter Griffin's utopian Petoria as any place in the world. Monowi, once a thriving metropolis of 150, now has a population of exactly one person, making it the smallest town in America. Elsie Eiler not only serves as proprietor of the friendly Monowi Tavern, she's also the mayor, town librarian, and civic liquor control board. And if being an entire city run by one person doesn't make you different than the rest of the state, we're not sure what does.
