Like the outdoors? Appreciate a buzzy food scene? Want to get your foot in the door in a quickly growing market? Buying a second home in Bozeman, Montana, may be the move.
A Booming Destination
Bozeman has consistently been named one of the fastest-growing cities of its size. While prices have already trended upward considerably, they’re not expected to stop heading that direction… making it the perfect place to have a home with appreciating value. Construction is a common sight in the city as more and more developments continue to pop up. American Airlines does direct flights between Dallas and Bozeman, so it’s just a three-plus-hour plane ride away.
Backyard: The Great Outdoors
Bozeman is paradise for lovers of the great outdoors. Pairing the comforts of a thriving city with the wonders of nature nearby, it’s the perfect homebase for the myriad of outdoor activities that Montana has to offer. Bozeman is just about 80 miles from Yellowstone, opening up one of America’s most beautiful national parks to plenty of daytrip explorations.
Bozeman is surrounded by mountains – perfect for hiking, biking and skiing. During the snowy seasons, the slopes of Bridger Bowl are just 16 miles away. Other renowned resorts, such as Big Sky, aren’t far either. Plus, there are endless cross country ski trails that provide a unique and adventurous way to explore backcountry.
During the hot Texas summers, you’ll be happy to escape to the moderate temperatures and scenic glory of the Montana mountains. You can get on the water, whether you opt to serenely paddleboard across a crystal-clear lake or raft down turbulent rivers.
The Hip Bozeman Culture
For a small town, there sure are plenty of hip cafes and fun character and very few chain stores. The University of Montana is based in Bozeman (which perhaps explains the multitude of coffee shops and fun bars). There’s also a museum with an impressive full T Rex skeleton (because of course there is).
Once COVID is finally a thing of the past, there’s also plenty of cultural happenings, such as farmer’s markets, festivals and art galleries to look forward to.
