Bozeman - Home of Montana State University

Rural Barn

Bozeman, Montana is the home of Montana State University and the Bobcats.  From Bozeman it is easy to get to Big Sky, West Yellowstone and Yellowstone National Park, Livingston, Paradise Valley and Butte.  The Gallatin River runs just west of Bozeman and there are numerous streams that run through town.

The Rocky Mountain Museum, located south on the MSU campus, near Bobcat Stadium is known for its depiction and study of dinosaurs.  Montana Grizzly Encounter, located on the east end of Bozeman is a refuge for rescued grizzly bears.  Take half a day to visit either one of these while staying in Bozeman.

Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park is a beautiful site inside and outside!  Besides beautiful views of the Jefferson River, a living cave is accessible to all visitors.

Camping, hiking, and fishing are all available.  Tours of the caverns are available in the summer, although the park is open all year long.

There is always plenty going on in Bozeman.  Look for the Bobcat Fest on Main, Bridal Walk, Christmas Stroll, Ladies Night Downtown, Historic Main Street Walking Tour, farmers’ market, art walks, and homecoming.  Bozeman is the home of seven breweries and four distilleries.

As in all of Montana, there are plenty of outdoor activities and sports available in and around Bozeman.  Downhill skiing can be found at Bridger Bowl, and nordic skiing at nearby Gallatin National Forest.  Numerous hiking and biking trails are located throughout and around the city.  Look for opportunities to kayak, raft and fish in nearby streams and rivers.
