Bozeman is a wonderful place to live. t is an up and coming city that still feels like your old hometown. There are many outdoor activities at your fingertips; floating the river, boating, fishing, hiking, skiing/snowboarding. Perfect & beautiful place for lovers of the outdoors! The only complaint I have is the cost to rent housing. There are lots of newly developed apartment buildings and condos.. BEAUTIFUL. A bit too expensive. Especially for an independent college student. There are other options that aren't completely brand new, but it is difficult to find an updated place to live for a reasonable cost. Overall, I love Bozeman. Would recommend to anyone.

Bozeman is an urban small town. There is so much to do here and the town is absolutely beautiful! Bozeman is fairly expensive place to live and it can be hard to find housing, but if you are persistent, you will be able to find what you need! The biggest industries here are healthcare and construction, along with real estate and contracting.
Relatively small community with all the niceties of a bigger community. Great school with a national high school championship cross country team. Great first class restaurants, skiing and of course outdoor activities!
