Spring is here, and needless to say so is the need to get some fresh air, exercise, and peace of mind. Wildlife watching in Yellowstone is superb in the spring, with baby animals playfully bounding around, their mamas happy that the long winter has ended.

Montana’s long and storied past makes it a must-visit for history buffs of all types, especially if you love to get hands-on with history in a ghost town.

As you travel through Bozeman, there are plenty of ghost towns worth a stop. Here are some of our favorites.
Summer in Montana is divine. As soon as the snow melts, locals start running fast and furiously, soaking up as much sun as possible.

Search and rescue professionals define backcountry as anywhere they can’t drive an ambulance, and around Bozeman, that’s a lot of places! It doesn’t take much to plan, and it’s well worth the effort.
Bozeman is a mountain playground in any season, but spring brings the beauty of change, new life, and reawakening nature, not to mention trail adventures and a thawing backcountry getting primed for summer. Here are a few of our favorite things to do in Bozeman during springtime.
