"Bozeman is in its own bubble." This is a phrase you might hear with talking to a realtor about housing. And the truth is, Bozeman is in a bubble. Our economy and population has been rapidly increasing in the last few years with almost 4,000 people moving to this area between 2016 -2017 according to the Census Bureau. This means more jobs in construction to build homes and apartments for all the influx.
With the increased population also comes increased business. Bozeman has become a booming area for tech and outdoor adventures. Tech includes laser technologies, optics, start ups and more. This is fueled by the university system and the town being extremely supportive of new technologies. One of these tech companies includes Oracle and its 500 employees working in Bozeman. For outdoor adventure types, Bozeman is home to many jobs featuring just that. Here you can find jobs in hunting, fishing, camping, biking, skiing, rafting, and many more fields. If you have a history in Ag then you will find a ton of opportunities around Bozeman as well.
If you have not been to Bozeman and seen what we are talking about you are missing out. Surrounded on 3 sides by mountain ranges, Bozeman features amazing views from all sides. Taking a hike up the M trail will offer amazing views of Bozeman itself. Then take a short drive out to Hylite and see the amazing views to be offered their with the beautiful lake and tall peaks. One of the best times to take in the views is late June, this is when the flowers are still in bloom, the snow has almost fully melted and its warm enough to hike without a light jacket!
If big hikes are not for you, all over Bozeman are trail systems that range from light to moderated difficulty and that can bring you all over the city. Sourdough trail is a great one for a light walk and great people to meet! There are also several large dog parks that offer places for your best friend to run around and meet the neighbors.
After a long day of hiking or skiing the best thing to do is always a great meal and with a great drink! Bozeman is home to so many amazing places to eat with lots of variety. Some of our favorite places include -
