Welcome to Bozeman

Spend life in a Montana-style metro center


Bozeman has an intriguing history and is still home to members of the Crow tribe as well as a focal point in American frontier stories. Bozeman is a consistently growing town with memorable views and such green lands that it's known as the "Valley of the Flowers." Not surprisingly, Bozeman tops many of the "Best Places to Live in the United States" lists and continues to see an increase in population.
 

Bozeman is surrounded by the Bridger Mountains to the north, the Tobacco Root Mountains, the Gallatin Range, and the Madison Range. The area is so lovely that film crews shot A River Runs Through It and The Horse Whisperer close to town. Many people enjoy rustic, Montana mountain-style homes or lavish cabins on property with many acres to roam. 

What to Love

  • Many accessible trails for the outside lifestyle
  • Numerous ski ramps, resorts, and lodges around town
  • One of the more urban parts of Montana
  • Top-notch health care and University town 
  • Great shopping centers and specialty stores

Local Lifestyle

Many locals love living in one of the more developed areas in Montana because there are more places to go and things to do. Bozeman is home to one of the major universities in Montana and has a lot of restaurants and retail developments that all the residents in town benefit from. People in Bozeman value living in a larger town and the ability to drive to national parks. 

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping 

Bozeman has many local breweries and fun places for university students and residents to spend time together, even during the winter months. Bridger Brewing is a local pub with some of the best pizza slices in town. Montana Ale Works has nearly 40 craft brews on tap for people to sample. Open Range is an upscale steakhouse perfect for more formal occasions with a famously eclectic interior. The Armory Music Hall is a renovated historic building that's now a popular music venue. Bozeman being home to one of the state universities translates to having a more extensive selection of shops, restaurants, and entertainment options than other rural areas closer to Yellowstone. 

Things to Do 

Bozeman has many ways for residents to entertain themselves in a beautiful location. History buffs will love a trip to The Museum of the Rockies, a satellite western branch of the Smithsonian museum that was established in 1975. The museum houses paleontological items, geological artifacts, and a planetarium. The Sweet Pea Festival is a three-day event to celebrate the arts. It was initially celebrated as a harvest festival because Bozeman was a major commercial center for pea production within the United States. Now, the festival involves a local art fair. Most people in town are Montana State Football fans and watch the team play at Bobcat Stadium. One of the best ski facilities is Bridger Bowl Skiing, which is home to over 75 different runs and nearly 10 lifts. There's a music scene in Bozeman, and residents can watch concerts year-round at the ELM
