    Main Street

    by flynboxes Written Mar 29, 2014

    Main Street is the main drag in town so after you are done playing in the mountains and want to wet your whistle or fill your stomach this is a great place to head to. Plenty of great local bars local cafes. Best thing about the place is that I did not see a Starbucks or McDonalds - The locals are smart and with any luck they will keep these trash chains away in the future as well.

    Museum of the Rockies

    by EllenH Written Sep 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located on Montana state university, the museum of the rockies is an interesting way to spend a few hours. We happened to be there when the King Tut exhibit was there but it was the last weekend for it to be there. Maybe that is why or maybe because it was Labor day weekend, but that place was packed! They also have a large dinosaur exhibit (quite a few remains have been found in Montana) Also have life in early Montana exhibits, and a planetarium. Cost is $9.50 for adults.

    Hyalite canyon

    by EllenH Written Sep 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Day hikes all over in Hyalite canyon, just outside of Bozeman. It is so beautiful up there, we hiked to history rock which is carved with names and dates supposedly dating back to the 1880's however the earliest date we could find was 1930. We also hikes to Palisade falls. That trail is supposed to be handicapped accessible but even if it is 4 feet wide and blacktopped I cannot imagine pushing a wheelchair straight up a hill that is difficult to walk up. There is also a large reservoir for boating and fishing.

    Bozeman Hot Springs

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I love hot springs but if you plan on going camping over there on a Friday night forget it. They close the hot springs which are next to a very large campground with hundreds of people from Friday night at 7:30 until Saturday night at 8:30.

    Wander around the MSU Campus

    by rcargo Written Mar 7, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After five years here (OK, so maybe I'm a little baised) I still think MSU is one of the pretties campuses around. Whether it's the beautiful mountains visible in nearly every direction, the usual sunny day and "big sky" feeling, or well kept up campus, I think you'll enjoy spending some time wandering around here. For an afternoon or an entire university career, it's definitely a memorable place that really defines Bozeman.

    There's a humorous legend about Montana Hall (pictured), one that seems to be based in fact. Suposeldy the building wasn't originally built with the steeple seen in the picture. But one night as a prank, some fraternity boys led a cow up to the top floor of the building. Not knowing that cows won't go down stairs, the found themselves with a serious problem. The solution (after a long night of trying everything else imaginable) turned out to quite an ordeal. A hole was cut in the roof of Montana Hall and the cow was lifted out of the building with a crane. Instead of just covering the hole, it was decided a steeple should be built over it. Quite a monument to a simple cow!

    Hot Water in a Winter Wonderland

    by rcargo Written Jan 11, 2005

    Here in the Boiling River you can comfortably soak all day in the natural hot water, even if it's a blinding blizzard outside! On clearer days you can look up to the magnificant mountains of Yellowstone National Park and see rams, deer, elk, and other wildlife. If no one else is there, find the small caves on the river bank that you can tuck into and practically take a nap in!
