Sweater season; it happens quickly in Bozeman. The air is brisk, and snow is likely, but the locals will tell you Fall is one of their favorite seasons. The countdown to winter has begun, and in the meantime, there are plenty of cultural and sporting events, entertainment, and outdoor activities to keep you busy.
Hay bale or corn, the mazes here don’t disappoint. Put it this way; it’s not uncommon to ask for clues to get out.
- Bozeman Straw Bale Maze: Constructed from hay bales, this maze is great for families. Activities include a bungee trampoline, mini-train, hay ride, corn bins and pumpkins.
- Montana Corn Maze: This corn maze is located on a 160-acre farm in nearby Manhattan, MT, first homesteaded in 1897. Today, the maze draws people from all over the state to try to exit out of 2.5 acres of twists and turns. This year’s theme is “Farmers Market.” Good luck!
Football fans don their blue and gold, tailgate parties begin and there are plenty of buffalo wing, craft beer filled gatherings in one of the local watering holes. Cheering on the Bobcats is something everyone gets behind.
