Bozeman Travel Guide
Welcome to Bozeman!
The city of Bozeman has experienced unhurried, yet continual, growth since the first settler, John Bozeman, laid claim to the land in 1864. Since that time, Bozeman has become a major tourism and agricultural hub in Montana. A charming blend of artists, professors, ranchers, students and outdoor enthusiasts make up the city's eclectic population. One popular destination for travelers in Bozeman is The Museum of the Rockies, which features a planetarium as well as displays on the Plains Indians and the pioneers. Every July, visitors are drawn to the Gallatin County Fair as it offers a myriad of events including a rodeo and an exhibition. Bozeman is also a popular destination for adventure seekers, offering an array of activities that include hiking, fishing, camping and rafting. The nearby Gallatin National Forest, which encompasses 1.8-million acres, is host to many of these recreational activities.
Located south of the Montana State University in Bozeman, The Museum of the Rockies boasts one of North America's finest paleontology collections, as well as strong Native American and western history sections.
