There's a reason Bozeman is considered a "dream town" and lauded by many for offering
high quality of life. When you fly in over the Bridger Range or drive into the Gallatin
Valley and find yourself surrounded by mountains, it's easy to understand why people
want to live, work and play here. Add the cultural amenities of a local symphony and
museums, the vibrancy of a college community and an energetic downtown, Bozeman is
the complete package.
