This one-time cow town offers the whimsical charm of days gone by with all the cultural accoutrements of the big city including the opera, symphony and ballet. Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Bozeman is truly a remarkable community. The Bozeman area at large encompasses over 70,000 people with backgrounds and cultures as diverse as the Montana landscape. From cattle ranchers to high tech engineers, the area is home to a breed of people who have come to appreciate an unmatched quality of life. While retaining a small town feel, Bozeman prides itself on offering community activities and programs typically available only in larger, metropolitan areas. Combine the wide array of resources with an abundance of outdoor recreational opportunities and it's easy to understand why Bozeman ranks as one of the nation's most liveable cities.
Bozeman is surrounded by four mountain ranges, thousands of acres of the Gallatin National Forest and hundreds of miles of blue ribbon trout streams, so the recreation opportunities are virtually endless. Hiking, biking, fly fishing, and rafting.
Downtown Bozeman has been an important and historic gateway to the West for more than 100 years. Downtown merchants outfitted explorers, miners, ranchers and the army with supplies to sustain them. Today, downtown features with rows of turn-of-the-century buildings. With more than 100 shops and restaurants lining this beautiful and historic retailing corridor, a stroll down Historic Main Street is a reminder of shopping in the grand old tradition.
Art and culture is alive and well in Bozeman. It is home to many museums, talented artists and excellent galleries. You can find opera, theatre, symphony and ballet, as well as rodeo, the Sweet Pea Festival, the Montana Winter Fair and the Gallatin County Fair.
