The night sky in Bozeman is incredible. Full of stars and without city lights, the dark skies bring a spectacular show of nature and camping is the best way to experience it. The days are equally impressive with 360-degree views, hiking, fishing, swimming and fields of wildflowers to enjoy. We recommend keeping it simple. Pitch a tent, pack some s’mores and get ready to relax!
Tucked up just outside of Bozeman, Hyalite Canyon is a “not so secret” gem for outdoor lovers. It’s no wonder, the area is packed with things to do and there’s not a bad view in the area. Fair warning, plan ahead because these spots can fill up fast!
In Bozeman, summertime is playtime and there is no shortage of events in August. If anything, it’s hard to fit them all in! Between art, music, outdoor adventure, and western entertainment, you’ll find something for everyone.

The LARK, a local hotel in the heart of downtown Bozeman, has completed its expansion that began in late 2016. This new building provides 29 additional guestrooms, bringing the total room count to 67. Part of the new addition is a café space on the ground floor, which will be operated by Treeline Coffee Roasters, offering the public and hotel guests espresso, tea, and coffee, as well as light bites for breakfast, such as pastries, and grab-and-go lunch items. Inviting outdoor spaces surround the property and offer comfortable gathering places to enjoy a refreshment and take in the Main Street vibe.
Summer evenings are made for live music. In Bozeman, that means closing Main Street, bringing out the food trucks and joining in a city-wide dance party. Each Thursday, bands from around the country perform for enthusiastic audiences with the beautiful Bridger Mountains as a backdrop. You’ll find community camaraderie, activities for the kiddos, delicious food and refreshing beverages. Shows run from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm and are free to everyone!
Summer is in full swing and so is the Bozeman social scene! Live music, farmers’ markets, home and garden tour, and a good old-fashioned state fair are just a few events on the agenda. No matter when you are visiting, leave the entertainment to us, we’ve got you covered!
It comes as a surprise to many visitors that this land-locked town in the mountains of Montana has not just one, but five amazing sushi restaurants. Chefs bring in fish from all over, making sure it’s not only fresh, but unique and sustainable. Being a beautiful mountain town full of adventure, Bozeman attracts some amazing sushi chefs who prefer the outdoor lifestyle to the bustle of the city. The result is win-win; living in an outdoor playground for them, and some seriously good sushi for us!
What makes a charming town like Bozeman even better? A stay at a bed and breakfast. Whether it’s a historic home or a countryside retreat, each of these homes provide special surroundings, a comfy place to rest and a delicious breakfast. These beautiful accommodations are perfect for travelers wanting a more intimate experience.
Bozeman is home to artists of all disciplines. The downtown is full of galleries showcasing pottery, paintings, and jewelry, to name just a few. Some say it is the beauty in the area that inspires so much creativity; but wherever it comes from, it’s abundant.
Summer in Bozeman is packed with events, and that’s exactly how we like it. From theater and music to outdoor recreation, the opportunities are plentiful.
