We get it, Bozeman doesn't offer 80 degree weather, beaches, or an ocean, but that doesn't mean it isn't a great Spring Break Destination. If you are in need to disconnect for a few days, want to have some fun, enjoy some great meals, and maybe drink a cocktail or two, Bozeman has you covered. In fact, there are a lot of great reasons that Bozeman should be on your short list. Here are 5 reason that you should visit Bozeman during your Spring Break.
Maybe the beach isn't your cup of tea or the idea big crowds sweating in the hot sun doesn't appeal to you. Maybe you would rather enjoy some fresh mountain air and get a few good ski days in before the snow melts. If that sounds more your style, Bozeman is your spot. With Big Sky Resort and Bridger Bowl close by you can spend your days enjoying some spring skiing. In March we tend to enjoy a few more sunny days which make the temperatures perfect out on the slopes. Plus these two ski areas don't see the crowds that some resorts in Colorado and Utah get so you shouldn't have to battle any lift lines. That means more great skiing for you.
The Bozeman hotel scene has been booming over the last few year and a handful new hotels are currently being built. With all these lodging choices there are options for all price ranges. There are big name franchise hotels, boutique hotels, hotels with restaurants and bars, hotels located near restaurants and bars, hotels along the highway or hotels downtown. We recommend checking out the lodging page on our website to find an option that will work for you.
The Bozeman Bar Scene
Being that Bozeman is a college town there are plenty of nightlife options to keep you entertained after the lifts close. Downtown has a great mix of options with everything from spots to get cheap beers, spots to grab a specialty cocktail, and everything in between. If you want to do a little dancing check out The Rocking R Bar, Bar IX or The Eagles. If you are looking for a spot to enjoy a good beer and chat with friends try The Pour House, The Bacchus Pub, or Pub 317. If a good glass of wine or delicious cocktail are on the agenda try Plonk, Corx, or Ted's Montana Grill. No matter your style, Bozeman has something for you.
