FACTS ON BOZEMAN

Ok.  I really don't know the facts.  But here's my best guess and opinions.  You may not agree.
Bozeman is a fast-growing community sprawled across the east edge of the Gallatin Valley.  The Bridger
Mountains loom up on the northeast, the Gallatin and Madison Ranges lie close to the south, and the
Tobacco Roots can be seen about 30 miles to the west.  Over the hill to the east, you'll find the Crazy Mountains and Absaroka/Beartooth Wilderness. 
Numerous streams flow from the surrounding mountains into the Gallatin River, just west of Bozeman.
25 miles to the west, you'll find the Madison River.  East to the Yellowstone River.
Bozeman is home to about 35,000 + people. ( I'm guessing here).  About 12,000 of these are students
at Montana State University.  GO BOBCATS! 
(Yes, I know... The U of M Grizzlys play better football.)
The town seems to be struggling between keeping the small mom-pop businesses and letting in the bigger 
box-stores.  There seems to be a nice combination now.  You can find most anything you need somewhere 
in Bozeman or the surrounding area.
Lots of motels, some great restaurants and lounges, a reasonable airport and wonderful people.
Families, students, ski-bums, hunters, outdoor enthusiasts, retired couples, millionaires, environmental
activists and everything in-between can be found in the Bozeman area.  Overall - some really friendly
and fun people looking to enjoy what Montana has to offer.
Housing is expensive.  Rent is high.  Jobs are difficult to find at times and rarely pay you what you're worth.
But we like it here anyway.
