Call it a memento, souvenir or keepsake, a vacation isn’t complete without bringing home a little something to remember your trip by. More than just a t-shirt (though we’re huge fans), little bits of nostalgia come about when you look at a beautiful art piece, spread a local preserve on your warm toast, or drink your coffee from a handmade mug. Bozeman is full of artists and entrepreneurs, here for the way of life, and making a living through their skills and ingenuity. Across town, shops and galleries are full of locally made items for you, your home, and even your pets! While we’ve outlined a few of our favorites, but please don’t limit yourself, you can find locally produced items in many stores around town; ask the shop owners, they will happily point you in the right direction.
Winter in Bozeman doesn’t have to bring an end to the hiking season. Getting out into the wilderness this time of year is magical, and it’s as simple as strapping on a pair of snowshoes! Finding the right snowshoe isn’t difficult, but it’s worth thinking carefully about your goals and ability, then spending time finding the right style.
We like to think this year started off with the excitement of the roaring ’20s, and we’re not planning to stop. There are five significant productions this month, quite impressive for this sophisticated little mountain town. There’s live music at venues throughout the city, and those interested in an extra-special culinary experience will want to check out the Farm to Table Feast happening at the end of the month!
Bozeman Convention and Visitors Bureau is proud to announce our commitment to Pledge for the Wild, a collaboration between five western mountain towns working to enhance and preserve our wild spaces through visitordonations, education and outreach.
There is something utterly breathtaking about Montana landscapes in the winter. The rugged mountains seem even more majestic, and the skies appear an even deeper hue of blue against the sparkling fields of snow. Trust us; scenic drives are well worth an afternoon. While we don’t encourage driving during inclement weather, Montana’s roads are well-kept during the winter, so don’t let the season keep you indoors. We’ve outlined some driving tips to keep you safe on the road, and even thrown in one of our favorite winter adventures!
Winter nights are well spent enjoying long conversations over leisurely dinners, and Bozeman restauranteurs take your dining experience seriously. Everything from locally sourced, grass-fed meats to organic herbs, greens, and veggies to freshly foraged mushrooms, it’s well worth spending time sharing multiple courses. We couldn’t begin to list all of our favorites, but we’ve compiled a list to get you started.
The countdown is on…school is almost out for the break, snowboards and skis are packed, and Montana has had a LOT of early season snow! Holidays at the ski areas do not disappoint. Bridger Bowl and Big Sky Resort go all out to bring the spirit of the season to the ski hill! Read on for a list of events—you’ll be just as busy off the slopes as you are on!
It’s here! The season of magic and wonder and everything sparkly. Pockets of Bozeman residents go all out on the bling, so gather the clan, a thermos of hot cocoa, and head out with the curiosity of a kid to stop and soak up the celebratory feeling of the season.
We've got a lot going on in this corner of Big Sky Country. This winter, you can beat the foul-weather blues when you make a trip to Bozeman and experience all the season has to offer. Here's a taste of the events and goings-on you won't want to miss out on.
Hands down, Bozeman is a pet lover's town. Put it this way; local gatherings often have equal numbers of pets and people. Trail systems run throughout the town, and the phenomenal hiking around the area is the perfect playground for animals. Fortunately, many hoteliers in Bozeman appreciate the canine connection and offer pet-friendly rooms—no more leaving the furry family members at home!
