Quotes From America's Leading Publications

There is a reason Bozeman continues to land on every prominent "Best Places To Live In America" list. Lauded by Time,, Men's Journal, Fast Company and many others, Bozeman really is one of America's best kept secrets. Life in Bozeman boasts four stunning seasons, with each offering the perfect opportunity to enjoy the Gallatin Valley and all of the surrounding beauty.   

What was once a Podunk cowboy town has morphed into a mountainside mecca. The ingredients—university town, easy-to-access mountain adventures, proximity to a killer national park... lasso the city’s artisan energy and stake Bozeman’s claim as an all-American hot spot.

Bozeman has been long renowned among outdoor enthusiasts for its fishing, hiking, skiing and cycling. Perhaps one of the first hubs of “Silicon Prairie,” Bozeman has become home to quite a few tech startups. As more jobs pour into the area, people are not only coming to Bozeman but staying there thanks to the outdoor amenities and work-life balance it affords — and the real estate market is reflecting this.

Bozeman is one of the fastest-growing non-metropolitan areas in the country. As the number of single-family homes in Montana has grown exponentially over the past 25 years, Gallatin county continues to lead that growth.

It doesn’t get much more scenic than Bozeman, Mont., a picturesque college town nestled between four mountain ranges and located just 90 minutes from Yellowstone National Park. A paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, Bozeman boasts easy access to world-class skiing, fishing, hiking, rafting, and more.

For outdoor enthusiasts, it’s hard to beat this Rocky Mountain city of 43,000, a population that keeps growing. World-class skiing, rafting, fishing and hiking are all close by; Yellowstone National Park is an easy day trip; and there’s sunshine an average of 300 days a year. Bozeman is also culturally vibrant, with educated residents — Montana State University has a campus here — a strong tech industry and a thriving Main Street.

Bozeman sits in a nearly 5,000-foot-high plateau surrounded by stunning mountain ranges and, frankly, some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country. An hour and half drive takes you to Yellowstone National Park, Big Sky Ski Resort is only an hour away, and smaller ski resorts are reachable in 30 minutes. Bozeman is also heaven for fly-fishing fans, who can cast at Gallatin, Madison River, or Yellowstone River. Horseback riding is also big in Bozeman, as are rodeos (a big one each summer is the Bozeman Stampede). Add in hiking and mountain biking, and there’s no shortage of outdoor activities.

Bozeman is also home to Montana State University, which gives it a cool college town vibe – including brewpubs and museums. The Museum of the Rockies actually has the country’s largest collection of dinosaur bones. A crop of new restaurants have recently opened in Bozeman, adding to the great selection of affordable taco spots, Korean barbecue, and other college town fare. Despite the cold weather — December through March can be brutal — Bozeman’s charms have made it one of the fastest growing towns in the region.
