The Mural at RSVP

North 7th Avenue and Oak Street


One of the remodeled motor inns in Bozeman, RSVP, utilized its back wall for a beautiful wildflower-inspired mural. In addition to the Montana-native flowers (scarlet paintbrushes, lupines, bitterroots, sunflowers, and harebells,) the mural depicts wheat stalks, meadowlarks, bumble bees, a grizzly bear, and a bison.

The Armory Hotel


The Armory Hotel, an architectural icon, is now a four-star hotel in Bozeman and has the best view in town. Sky Shed Rooftop is a great place to grab a cocktail, an appetizer, and a selfie with the Bridger Mountains in the background. 



Spirit the Bobcat 

Montana State University 


Many students, alums, family, and friends have gathered around the Spirit the Bobcat statue. The Bobcat was selected as MSU's mascot in 1916 for its cunning intelligence, athletic prowess, and independent spirit. You can find the statue in Alumni Plaza, created as a place to instill pride and provide a focal point for spirit on campus.

Museum of the Rockies 


This magnificent bronze statue in front of the Museum of the Rockies represents a legendary Tyrannosaurus rex—the life-size replica of one of the most complete T. rex skeletons ever discovered. 



The College "M"

Bridger Mountain Range


One of Bozeman's most popular hiking trails, the College "M" is a great spot overlooking the entire Gallatin Valley. Stunning mountain backdrops and a lush valley floor are perfect for capturing your time in Bozeman. The trail is close to town, offering two routes, one a gentler incline, and one that takes you straight up!
