Bozeman is a nice town. Lots of things to do for a town in Montana. Honestly feels more like a thriving city than cowboy town in Montana. The people are really nice and help will be given if asked for. Lots of snow. Finding a cheap apartment is difficult because the town population is expanding faster than housing is expanding.
Bozeman is a fun open community when it comes to outside activities however they lack in other fun activities for young adults which leads to a lot of underage parties. Most people are very nice but sometimes you run into some mean people here and there.
Great town to live in with great outdoor activities but bad traffic and nothing to do at night. The town strives on Montana State University students for most of the year, with summer tourists flying in to visit Yellowstone National Park. One downside is that there is nothing to do in the evenings besides the one crowded movie theater and the bars downtown.
i LOVE Bozeman, but i have to say that the only thing i dislike is the cost of living. most 1 bedrooms are over $1100 and two bedrooms jump up to $1800, if youre a college student at MSU, youll probably love it bc you dont mind living with others, but even with the living wages being higher, the rent/cost of living is gastronomical. if you drive a diesel though youll benefit bc your gas is normally cheaper than regular unleaded! but you can also save on gas bc almost everywhere in bozeman is in walking distance, the whole town is on a grid and it makes getting around almost foolproof. when i strike it rich, ill move back to bozeman...but until then im going to have to try to find a town similar to hold me over in the meantime :(
Bozeman is a spectacular place for students. Especially when we consider the affordability of life and safety. I feel like Bozeman is a perfect place to begin a new life and to start at the bottom. Life is super easy compared to big cities.
I want to rate Bozeman "Avg" but I am unable to due to the beauty. My complaints lie w/ housing prices, traffic & wages ppl are paid 2 "live". Bozo is 2 small for all the ppl that are here. Traffic is unbearable. Wages people are stupid low. U have some very unhappy ppl that have 2 live w/ a quite a few roommates 2 even survive! For as "rich" as Bozo is, they sure degrade the employees w/ pocket change payroll.
Bozeman is a great college town. Located in the Gallatin Valley, it is just a short drive to rivers, mountain trails, and the infamous Yellowstone National Park. It is home to hundreds of delicious breweries, giftshops and several art galleries. Due to the colossal amount of fossils in mid and eastern Montana, Bozeman also has the Rocky Mountain Museum with it's widely known dinosaur exhibit, with animatronics and engaging atmosphere.
There are a lot of things to do in Bozeman. From hiking, to lake fun, bowling, night life. Sometimes it can seem small but if you go out and experience the life Bozeman has to offer you will feel right at home.
Bozeman is a beautiful place to reside but beware, the winters are brutal. There are times where up to a month’s span that it will be -45 degrees with wind-chill and snow above your car. The housing prices are sky high, as well as rental prices. Bozeman is a generally expensive place to live. Although the city is dog friendly, Housing is not. This city was not designed to hold more than 50,000 people so the traffic has been pretty awful. Expect up to 20-30 minute drives home if you live 3-5 miles away. It’s also right next door to a super volcano so that’s a little scary as well. I hear Bozeman is getting full, but Missoula is Nice and much milder winters….and not next door to super volcano.
Bozeman is a lovely city with countless things to do including phenomenal hiking and outdoor recreation in every direction. It is a steadily growing city; one of the fastest in the country, so it is due for more development both residential and commercial. Of all the places I've been, it's the most beautiful and serene. However, the cost of living can be high.
Bozeman is a beautiful and friendly place to live. However, the real estate/rental market and job market is insanely competitive due to the town's fast growth. This also makes the cost of living higher/increasing in comparison to average pay.
Bozeman is such a beautiful place to live. Two ski resorts with an hour of the town. Many hiking trails that are truly beautiful. World class ice climbing. Basically any outdoor activity you want Bozeman has.
Lots of unique shops and restaurants, always easy to find something local. Downtown Bozeman has very few chain stores and is almost entirely local and small business owners.
Bozeman, Montana is a gorgeous town! There are mountains all around the town and an abundant source of beautiful nature within a short drive from town. The culture and diversity of Bozeman is growing everyday and has its own quirks that make it a fun town to live in!
Bozeman is a nice little place in Montana. It has changed in the last couple of years. The price of living/housing is going up dramatically, which then in turn makes living in town unobtainable for a growing number of people.
I visited Bozeman in Summer 2017 and stayed there about a Month for a cultural exchange program . It is one of my favorite places. I visited other cities in Montana and other states but Bozeman was the place that I felt home the most. The people there were very welcoming, almost everyone knows the other for the fact the Bozeman is a small cozy city. This place fits everyone, the youth and the elder people. It is also am affordble place to live in since there is no taxes in Montana and it also has free public trasportation for everone. GRANNY'S DONUTS HAS THE BEST DONUTS IN THE WORLD.
I love Bozeman for many reasons. There is a multitude of outdoor activities including hiking, skiing, fishing and hunting. However one down fall is the amount of people moving to Bozeman, trying to change it from the humble ranching community that it was to California.
Bozeman is a wonderful town where you can easily access both trails and cultures. I love living in a place that values time spent outdoors. Since Bozeman is such an incredible place, it is also experiencing some growing pains. Right now, the cost of living is increasing and housing is becoming less accessible.
I love how Bozeman is surrounded by beautiful mountains and is less than an hour away from Yellowstone National Park. It is quickly growing into the bigger city, so the only thing I would change is more affordable rent prices with more options for pet-friendly housing.
Unbelievably beautiful, but plagued by Red-state politics and Big Fish in small pond syndrome. The economy is bustling here, and the Gallatin Valley is rapidly undergoing development. You will not find a better location to ice climb in the morning and then downhill ski in the afternoon. The local Museum of the Rockies offers free lecture series and there is always something happening on Main Street. The best of the West, indeed.
