Bozeman, Montana: small town feel with big city amenities

While we were in Mandan, ND we had the pleasure of meeting local entrepreneur Dave Ressler. He invited us to stay in “his place” the Hampton Inn Bozeman at the base of the Bridger Mountains on our drive  from Mandan to Seattle.

Bozeman is known for it’s clean air, moderate climate and easy access to national forest and trails. There’s whitewater rafting and kayaking, blue ribbon fly fishing, rock climbing, hiking, camping, mountain and road biking, wildlife viewing. Montana State University is here. Museums, Arts & Culture and year round recreation make Bozeman a sought after place to live. There’s a great downtown, vibrant and alive with shops and restaurants. Ted Turner has a 127,000-acre spread near Bozeman. Meg Ryan & Glenn Close also have places near by.

And in the winter months,  Bridger Bowl ski resort is renowned for its light and deep powder snow. What’s not to love!! And we think Bozeman is the perfect candidate for next year’s Best of the Road!
