Great Falls is the second-largest city in Montana. It sits at the confluence of the Missouri and Sun rivers, not far from the Great Falls that give the city its name. Great Falls is a trade center for a farm and livestock district, irrigated by the Sun River project. Not far outside the city is Giant Springs, which discharges a large flow of water into the Missouri River.

Great Falls is popularly called the 'Electric City', as it is the center of extensive hydroelectric power development. You can also find flour mills and a copper reduction plant in town. The surrounding area holds deposits of coal, natural gas, silver and lead. Industries include printing, publishing, and meatpacking and the manufacture of feeds and fabricated metal products.

The College of Great Falls and the Montana School for the Deaf and Blind are in the city, which also serves as the headquarters for Lewis and Clark National Forest. Tourists come to see the annual rodeo and state fair, as well as the log cabin of the cowboy artist Charles Russell, which is preserved as part of a museum complex.
