About Bozeman

When you visit Bozeman, you will get a taste of the Old West culture, especially in downtown. Whether you want to dine on specialty pizza, buy homegrown honey, or listed to live music, this city has something for you.

Being the home of Montana State University, there is an added academic charm to the city. In 1915, the students of Montana State hand-built the iconic 250-food white “M” to decorate the Bridger Canyon entrance, which demonstrates how essential nature is to the people of Bozeman.

There are endless opportunities to appreciate nature in the Custer Gallatin National Forest, at the Big Sky Resort, and at the Montana Grizzly Encounter. Bozeman even boasts the Museum of the Rockies! Plus, just 80 miles away from Bozeman is the famous Yellowstone National Park.

Take a day trip, overnight, or spend a week there seeing all the awe-inspiring sites.
