This winter, JetBlue will make it easier than ever for Floridians to find fresh powder in Bozeman with direct flights from Fort Lauderdale! Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) announced yesterday that JetBlue will begin a new winter seasonal nonstop service between BZN and Fort Lauderdale, FL (FLL), on December 18, 2020. This exciting addition provides even more travel options for ski-seekers and Montana snowbirds looking to getaway.
Yellowstone National Park should be on everyone's bucket list.
Established in 1872, it was the world's first national park, and for many, it's most beloved. Comprised of 2.2 million acres, equating to 3,472 square miles, and home to the world's biggest collection of geysers, you could explore for days never see it all!
We understand vacation expenses can add up quickly, especially if you're traveling with a family! However, you don't have to break the bank to visit Bozeman—we have some suggestions to help save on money without skimping on the fun! Living in Bozeman is, first and foremost, fun. Most everyone lives here for their love of the outdoors, and finding adventure is right outside your door. The first step to saving money? Act like a local. Pretend you live here, and instead of vacationing like you're on vacation, pretend you're just going about your day. It's incredible how little you need.
Bozeman's Sweet Pea Festival is arguably one of the highlights of everyone's summer. The annual celebration draws family and friends together to celebrate art, music, theater, food, and entertainment. This will be the festival's 43rd year, and while it will look a bit different, the creative minds behind it have found a way to make it happen at a safe distance. Sans the parade, the fun run, and the Bite of Bozeman, many of the festivities are still taking place in a modified form.
Bozeman's newest gem, Story Mill Community Park, is quickly becoming a local favorite. The 60 acres adjoining the historic Story Mill have been revitalized into a vibrant community space complete with almost a mile of restored river frontage along the East Gallatin River and 15 acres of wetlands for birds and wildlife. And talk about the views— the park has a stunning backdrop of the Bridger Mountain Range.
There’s a way to do Yellowstone, and there’s a way to do Yellowstone. The towns surrounding America’s First National Park are more than just charming, they’re endearing. Surrounded by breathtaking mountain ranges, clear streams, friendly locals, each of these towns offers a myriad of opportunities for fun. Our recommendation is to make Bozeman your home base, but add a night or two in one of these nearby towns and delve into the Montana experience. All of these towns are accessible in the winter and summer.
While we all agree that Bozeman's real magic lies in the great outdoors, there's no need to fret over an occasional rainy day. The town is full of fun things to do with the littles inside—from educational to artistic to flat out energy expending. (ProTip: End the day at one of our delicious ice cream shops!)
Full of young families, Bozeman has no shortage of fun things to do with kids, both inside and out! We know how hard it can be to keep the littles entertained, so we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite spots to fill in the time in between your big adventures.
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. As the park continues to open up and we continue the COVID recovery, we want to whet your appetite for the animals that you will still be able to see as you visit, even if it's not in March or April as initially planned.
