South Central Montana

Bozeman, population 27,509, lies in the heart of the Gallatin Valley, a rich farmland of scenic grandeur in mountainous southwestern Montana.

The city is named after John Bozeman, a 19th century pioneer who made his living guiding immigrants through the formidable Rocky Mountains. Located at the gateway to some of the most impressive countryside in Montana and surrounded by national forest on every side, Bozeman is considered a Mecca for outdoor recreation.

For those who love skiing, Bozeman's geographic location couldn't be better, as it is 43 miles from Montana's expansive Big Sky Resort and approximately two hours from cross-country skiing in Yellowstone National Park. Hiking, fishing and horseback riding are also accessible in the Bozeman area. Guided tours can be arranged for a wide number of activities including llama treks and whitewater rafting.

A plethora of U.S. Forest campgrounds surround the Bozeman area. The Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park, southwest of Bozeman, offers camping and is well known for its limestone caves. Hotels, motels, vacation rentals and other accommodations are also available in and around Bozeman.

Now considered a preferred area for residential relocation, Bozeman has come a long way since its primitive days of dirt roads and packhorses. Bozeman offers the very best in entertainment from an art museum to live Shakespearean theater. The city also features several art and food festivals throughout the year.

For those who crave Old West lore and history, Bozeman's museums provide a glimpse of what it was really like to live in rugged Montana during the 19th century, and why John Bozeman called this little corner of the Rockies "the Garden of Montana."
