"Your mountains are high, your sky is blue and your rivers are full of fish." ― David Walburn
Bozeman, as part of the greater Gallatin County, is a place in the midst of explosive growth. Surrounded on all sides by mountains, Bozeman is easily one of the best places in the country to live if pursuing the outdoors is your passion. Yellowstone National Park is a 90 minute drive south, Big Sky Resort--the biggest ski resort in the country--is an hour away, and the world class steeps of Bridger Bowl are twenty minutes North. Multiple rivers run through the valley and provide vast kayaking, rafting, floating, and fishing opportunities. And of course, all the summer mountain activities you can dream of.
While Bozemanites once relished in the city’s obscurity, it’s safe to say that Bozeman is now on the map. A booming economy keeps unemployment low and wages high. Montana State University, host to almost 16,000 undergraduates, ensures that entertainment, sports, and culture remain integral elements of the city. And the natural beauty of the surroundings ensures a steady influx of like-minded souls.
