Bozeman often referred to by locals as BozeAngeles, has well earned its nickname over the past few years. It’s the fastest growing city of its size in the nation, but its growth is particularly unique. While towns expand through the addition of large chains like Chile’s, department stores and other box big stores, Bozeman instead ups the local anti. Main Street, the city’s central strip, is dappled in farm-to-table restaurants, artisan coffee shops, local boutiques, and art galleries. But don’t let all the amenities fool you—this is very much still a mountain time. There’s no inch of the horizon that’s not swallowed up by mountain peaks, rolling pastures in the middle of town, even the occasional horseback cowboy trotting down the road shoulder.
