As the home of Montana State University, Bozeman is often described as a “college town.” But don’t let that moniker fool you: there’s so much more to Bozeman that just a college campus. Visitors have a widespread selection of activities to choose from, all of which come with a breathtaking view of the mountains, free of charge.
Bozeman single-handedly offers nearly every outdoor activity you could imagine, such as:
- Fishing and fly-fishing
- Skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling
- Horseback riding
For those looking to venture out, there’s plenty of activities that are just a short car ride away from the city. You can explore the parks and museums, like the Bozeman Art Museum or the American Computer & Robotics Museum. Take a dip in the world-famous Bozeman hot springs or get pampered at Canyon River Salon and Spa.
And let’s not forget MSU! Tour the campus or take in a game. Go Bobcats!
Eat and Drink
When you’re ready to sit back and relax, check out a brewery, like Bozeman Brewing Company or Bridger Brewing Company. If beer isn’t your thing, head to Corx Wine Tasting Bar or one of Bozeman’s many distilleries, like Bozeman Spirits Distillery.
After your cocktail, you’re ready for dinner. For those who want to eat like a Montana cowboy, there’s Land of Magic Steakhouse or Buck’s T-4 Lodge. But Bozeman eateries offer more than just fine cuts of meat. Feast Raw Bar & Bistro serves local, sustainable seafood and produce, and Biankini’s is a great choice for fresh salad, well-crafted soups and sandwiches.
