Bozeman is a thriving college town. Set in the Gallatin Valley between five gorgeous mountain ranges, this town has a lot of offer if you love the outdoors. Bozeman has many amazing coffee shops and diverse restaurants (from bison burgers to fresh sushi), as wells as three distilleries and seven breweries, if you're into craft beer and whisky like I am. The schools are some of the highest rated in Montana. There are a wide range of churches and non-profits in the Valley if you want to serve the community. It feels safe here. I never lock my car or house doors. It is somewhat expensive to live in Bozeman. To rent a house in the city limits costs more than a mortgage in nearby Belgrade, where we bought our first house. And city regulations prohibit owning chickens in city limits, which was another deal-breaker for us. But my wife and I both work in Bozeman and absolutely love the area. People say hi to you when they pass you on the street!
