Vida /ˈvaɪdə/ is an unincorporated village in northern McCone County, Montana, United States, located on Montana Highway 13 along the Big Sky Back Country Byway, approximately 23 miles south of Wolf Point, Montana, and 27 miles north of Circle, Montana. At this location, it was known as Presserville until 1951, when the post office at a previous incarnation of Vida was moved to that town and Presserville's citizens agreed to change the town name to conform with the name under which the post office was registered.
Over the intervening decades, the population has dwindled significantly - At the 2000 census, the Vida area had a population of approximately 70 people. - but the post office remains active, along with a "one room schoolhouse" servicing northern McCone County and covering grades PK thru 8, two Christian churches (one Catholic, one Protestant), two grain elevators, a convenience store and a gas station.
Vida is also the boyhood home of nine time Montana sportscaster of the year Rocky Erickson.
