The best little city you'll find. Stay a day and you'll see what all the fuss is about.

San Francisco, California, USA

Bozeman has plenty of room for you to roam. It also has gorgeous views and serves as a great gateway to both the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. It's also an up-and-coming city that isn't all tourists out and it serves as headquarters to a few tech companies like RightNow Technologies.

Bozeman is one of America's "It" cities in the second decade of the 21st century. The city is at the eye of a cyclone of mountain ranges that seem to stud every horizon. The city's historic buildings--mansions, mills and even railroad cars--are remarkably well preserved and many have gained a second life as homes to art galleries, architecture or design firms and upscale cafes. As a college town Bozeman has a youthful feel and the nightlife is consequently vibrant and varied. Oh yeah, and Yellowstone National Park is only 90 miles away, making Bozeman an ideal staging point for a foray into the jewel in the crown of the National Park System.

Great little (and growing) town. In a valley surrounded by mountains, you will find lots of hiking, fishing and skiing locally and it is a convenient jumping off place for Yellowstone (about 1.5 hrs to the entrance). Downtown is walkable and has a nice selection of restaurants and shopping.

This sculpture on the Montana State University campus is a weather vane of sorts, in addition to being a conspicuous piece of art. Affectionately called the "Noodle" by locals, it actually turns when the wind changes direction.


Wide open spaces, beautiful scenery and a lot of mountains. Some of the best coffee shops that I have ever been to. And no Starbucks. If you love the outdoors, then Bozeman is the place to go. Not only is it a beautiful place, but it also has very friendly people. Don't forget to hike to the M.

Menlo Park, California, USA

Beautiful college town with an old west feel surrounded by big mountains. In summer this place is hiking bliss. In winter there is great skiing nearby at Bridger Bowl or Big Sky. In between...well, can't speak to that. Great place to visit.


Great college town. Lots to do and quaint downtown.

I headed to the rolling farm hills just as the sun was setting.
