25 Things We Love about Bozeman


TAGS:


1. TOWN & COUNTRY’S ANNUAL TURKEY GIVEAWAY. 

EVERY THANKSGIVING YOU CAN GET A FREE TURKEY JUST FOR BUYING GROCERIES. AND, YOU ARE SHOPPING LOCAL. WIN-WIN!

2.  “TRAFFIC" 

YES, OUR 5’OCLOCK RUSH HOUR IS DEFINITELY DIFFERENT THAN IT WAS A FEW YEARS BACK, BUT IT’S NOT THIS….

3.  THE ELLEN THEATRE

IF YOU HAVEN’T BEEN INSIDE, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE MISSING…. THE ELLEN  HOSTS FREE FAMILY MOVIES ON FRIDAYS, WHICH WE THINK IS AMAZING. ALSO, THEY ARE KNOWN TO GIVE YOU BLANKETS IF YOU ARE COLD DURING A SHOW. WE KNOW THIS FROM EXPERIENCE. 

 

4. THE BAXTER HOTEL SIGN

AFTER DECADES OF BEING IN THE DARK, THE BAXTER HOTEL SIGN NOW LIGHTS UP EVERY EVENING AND HAS BECOME A LANDMARK FOR DOWNTOWN BOZEMAN

 

5. FROM YOUR DESK TO THE MOUNTAINS IN T-10 MINUTES

THE FACT THAT THERE ARE AT LEAST 4 AWESOME HIKES WITHIN A 15 MINUTE DRIVE FROM THE CENTER OF TOWN MAKES IS REAL EASY TO GO STRAIGHT FROM THE OFFICE TO THE MOUNTAINS. 

 

6. HEEBS

ENOUGH SAID.

 

7. SHOPPING LOCAL IS EASY!

THERE ARE A COUNTLESS NUMBER OF LOCALLY MADE PRODUCTS THAT YOU CAN BUY ALL OVER TOWN, ESPECIALLY DOWNTOWN! CLICK HERE FOR OUR MADE IN MONTANA SHOPPING LIST! 

8. WILLSON AVENUE

IT LOOKS AMAZING IN THE SUMMER, IN THE FALL, IN THE WINTER. BASICALLY, WILLSON AVENUE NEVER LOOKS BAD.

9. MUSIC ON MAIN

MUSIC, BEER, FOOD & DOWNTOWN BOZEMAN. IT’S A WIN-WIN. 

10. IT'S FAMILY FRIENDLY! 

WE HAVE PARKS GALORE, TRAILS THAT ARE EASY FOR LITTLE LEGS, AN AMAZING SCHOOL SYSTEM PLUS A FANTASTIC LIBRARY AND MUSEUM FOR WINTER ENTERTAINMENT.

11. SPEAKING OF FAMILY FRIENDLY…WE LOVE THE GARAGE AND THEIR KID PLAY AREA. 

FINALLY A PLACE YOU CAN HAVE A GREAT MEAL WHILE KIDDOS ARE ENTERTAINED!

12. SO. MANY. COFFEE SHOPS. 

WHATEVER PART OF TOWN YOU LIVE, IN YOU ARE BOUND TO BE NEAR A COFFEE SHOP.  OF COURSE, WE ARE PARTIAL TO THE LOCAL ONES, LIKE LEAF AND BEAN, COLD SMOKE AND CAFE ZOCALO. JUST TO NAME A FEW...

13.  PLENTY OF BEER

MUCH LIKE COFFEE SHOPS, THERE IS NO LACK OF BREWERIES. AS BOZEMANITES, WE LOVE OUR BEER AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD FEEL OF OUR LOCAL BREWERIES.

14. LOTS OF LOCALLY GROWN FOOD IN A COLD WEATHER TOWN. 

WE MAY HAVE A SHORT GROWING SEASON HERE IN BOZEMAN BUT WE TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE WITH TWO SUMMER FARMER’S MARKETS, ONE IN THE WINTER AT THE EMERSON AND MANY CSA’S AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

 

15. COMMUNITY SUPPORT

WE HAVE A FANTASTIC FOOD BANK, WARMING SHELTER, COMMUNITY CAFÉ AND MANY ORGANIZATIONS OUT THERE THAT LOOK OUT FOR OUR NEIGHBORS.  IN BOZEMAN, WE TAKE CARE OF ONE ANOTHER.  

16. IT’S A DOG TOWN

THEY SAY EVERYONE IN BOZEMAN HAS A LAB NAMED BRIDGER AND DRIVES A SUBARU.  THIS MAY BE A BIT OF A GENERALIZATION, BUT JUST ABOUT EVERYONE DOES OWN A FURRY FRIEND.  LUCKY FOR THEM THERE ARE PLENTY OF OFF LEASH PARKS AND TRAILS FOR THEM TO RUN IN.  BOZEMAN IS A GOOD PLACE TO BE A DOG.  

17. HYALITE CANYON

YES, IT CAN GET A LITTLE CRAZY UP THERE DURING THE HEIGHT OF TOURIST SEASON.  BUT, HOW LUCKY ARE WE THAT IN A QUICK THIRTY MINUTE DRIVE FROM DOWNTOWN BOZEMAN YOU CAN BE IN THE HEART OF MOUNTAINS?  

 

18. BOZEMAN IS THE PERFECT SIZE

WHILE WE AVOID THE HUSTLE BUSTLE OF A CITY, WE CERTAINLY AREN’T A SLEEPY MONTANA TOWN.  WE GET THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.  CULTURE AND RESTAURANTS OF A CITY AND FRIENDLY ATTITUDE OF SMALL TOWN.  

19. POWDER

AMAZING SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING ARE RIGHT IN OUR BACKYARD.  BRIDGER BOWL IS KNOWN FOR ITS’ EXPERT-ONLY SKIING TERRAIN "THE RIDGE “AND IT RECEIVES SNOWFALL TOTALS TO RIVAL THE WORLD'S BEST POWDER SKIING AREAS.  BIG SKY RESORT GIVES US ACCESS TO MORE SKIING THAN ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE UNITED STATES WITH OVER 5,800 SKIABLE ACRES AND IT'S ONLY 45 MINUTES AWAY!

20.  Fishing

GALLATIN? YELLOWSTONE? MADISON? SO MANY OPTIONS, SO LITTLE TIME. DID WE MENTION THAT THIS IS WORLD CLASS FISHING?

21. “MAIN STREET TO THE MOUNTAINS."

BOZEMAN’S AMAZING TRAIL SYSTEM CRISSCROSSES THROUGH TOWN OFFERING A STRAIGHT PATH TO THE MOUNTAINS.

22. YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK

THE FACT THAT YELLOWSTONE’S GEYSERS, WATERFALLS, LAKES AND WILDLIFE ARE ONLY 90 MINUTES AWAY IS AWESOME. WHAT IS EVEN MORE AWESOME IS THAT WE CAN VISIT THE PARK THROUGHOUT THE YEAR (MEANING NOT DURING TOURIST SEASON). HEY, WE’RE MONTANANS. WE TEND TO AVOID LARGE CROWDS OF PEOPLE. 

 

23. PICKLE BARREL

IF YOU HAVE TO ASK WHY, THEN YOU SHOULD PROBABLY GO GET YOURSELF A PICKLE BARREL SANDWICH ASAP. 

24. CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING

TAKE YOUR PICK. BOZEMAN AND ITS SURROUNDING AREA OFFER MILES UPON MILES OF GROOMED CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING TERRAIN.

 

25. THE BLUE LIGHT

COME ON, YOU KNOW WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT! ASIDE FROM THE SNOW PHONE THE ONLY REAL WAY TO KNOW IF IT’S SNOWING UP AT BRIDGER BOWL IS TO LOOK FOR THE FLASHING BLUE LIGHT ON TOP OF THE BAXTER HOTEL.
