You've seen the name over and over, listed nearly every year by respected outdoor publications as "one of the best" small towns in the country. Now, you're coming to Montana, perhaps to visit Yellowstone or Glacier National Parks, so be sure to put Bozeman on your itinerary! Find out for yourself what makes this community so special.... what's the vibe? Who lives here, what do they do and why do they have such a passion for this surprisingly sophisticated small town in the Rocky Mountain West? There are two "tour" options for you to consider: one with an hour (roundtrip) walk/hike (children six and older with some hiking experience), and one without (children four and older welcome).

Let's meet at 9:00 am.
With hike: we'll take a short drive to our town's best loved trail, walking up to the "M," where there are benches to sit on while we look out over town and get our bearings. After coming down, we'll drive to the downtown, grab a refreshment at one of our historic Main Street coffee shops, then walk and talk down Main, discussing Bozeman's culture, history and future. I'll leave you with restaurant, gallery and shopping tips, directions to the Museum of the Rockies and Montana State Univ., and addtional ideas for what to do and see, depending on your schedule.
Without a hike: we'll start at the Museum, walk through the heart of the University, tour downtown, and drive out to a lovely vantage point to get a view of the "Valley of Flowers," and then let's discuss all those additional ideas for your stay in the area.

I loved my time with Julie in Bozeman! She took me on a great hike that overlooked town and all the mountains and she is very knowledgable about the area as she has been here for almost 40 years. She's in good shape too so she kept me on my game on the hike! :) A very kind and lovely woman~I really enjoyed being with her and hearing her stories and perspective on life in Montana. After the hike Julie drove me through town and showed me the layout which was super helpful later as I ventured through town for myself looking for dinner, music and fun things to do. Bozeman is a sweet little place with lots of history, impressive eateries, great shops, music, health food stores, and people having fun and mingling. If you go to Bozeman I definitely recommend starting your morning with Julie. Thank you Julie for your warm welcome and genuine kindness ❤️ I miss Montana already and look forward to coming back! XO
