Country Living with City Style in Bozeman, MT 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( Apr 26, 2018) The main reason I live in Bozeman, MT and love it is the scenery. That is also why hundreds and hundreds of people visit each year. The city is nestled in a valley surrounded by several mountain ranges, all part of the Rockies. Every day the views just take my breath away.

What
...Read More has always amazed me about this city is how it is possible to visit a ranch or farm within a short drive of a fabulous gourmet restaurant, fine art museum, or great live theater. Most often those things don't come together in one area.

Wonderful homes are available in neighborhoods or beautiful houses can be had in a country setting with lots of acreage. There are plenty of job opportunities in Bozeman, MT since the tourist trade is steady, and winter sports are big here. There are many software companies where work may be available including Big Sky Computer Solutions, "gotobilling" and many more. The construction industry is also big here. Read Less
