Bozeman Travel Guide, Montana

Located 142 miles W of Billings in the southwestern Montana, one of the fastest-growing counties, Bozeman is the sixth largest city in the state.

It started as a ranching settlement in 1860s and developed into a college town and favorite tourist destination having a Western atmosphere. Home to Montana State University, Bozeman is a vibrant and hip city that welcomes visitors all year long, its downtown area bustling with shops and hosting the greatest concentration of nice restaurants in Montana, aimed at both tourists and locals alike. Bozeman restaurants are sure to satisfy.

The city is packed with students attending Montana State University and with those who enjoy skiing as they have an excellent opportunity to practice downhill skiing at nearby Bridger Bowl. Other outdoor activities are also within easy reach if we consider that the city is only 100 miles from Yellowstone National Park. So don’t hesitate to explore the great surroundings and environment of the Bozeman, Montana region!

The love for nature and spending their time in the open is probably one of the reasons why environmental politics thrived in the city.

Don't miss out on the numerous activities that the communities have to offer. Take in a movie, head to the museum or visit one of the city’s attractions, the 1918 historic building, The Emerson. It was first a grade school and in 1993 it became an arts and cultural center hosting artist studios, galleries, a fine-arts education programs, a theater, a ballroom and even a restaurant serving lunch and dinner. It is appreciated for events and activities that take place here all year-round. People come here to create, work, learn, be inspired, and entertained.

In summer the community event Lunch on the Lawn is particularly enjoyed for its live music and food. A great time is guaranteed at the museum of computing technologies where you can go back in time and see how the computer came into being how its size changed from being a huge one to a tiny device; you can trace more than 4,000 years of computing history, from the first computer till recent developments.

Even if in the past there wasn’t too much action around Bozeman because dancing was prohibited after midnight, now things have changed and entertainment options in the evening are plenty starting with Bozeman stage where the Montana Shakespeare in the Parks, a professional touring company, will enchant you with their numerous performances in the summer weekends. For a more casual night head to Montana Ale Works a nice place known for its microbrews where you can get a drink while listening to some loud music. For live jazz there’s Boodle's and for a college atmosphere "Barmuda Triangle" is the best option.
