South Bozeman is home to some fantastic neighborhoods with homes that come in all shapes, sizes, and price points. Living on the South side means you are just a short drive to Montana State University, Bozeman Health, and downtown Bozeman. There are beautiful neighborhoods in this area with quiet streets and mature trees. And while it's easy to get downtown from South Bozeman, you won't necessarily need to. Two of Bozeman's best restaurants Feast and Blacksmith are right off of Kagy Boulevard, making it easy to enjoy a night out, without dealing with the traffic downtown!
The outskirts of south Bozeman offer great access to some of Bozeman's best outdoor recreation, beautiful properties on larger parcels of land, and in many cases stunning views of the Bridger Mountains and other surrounding mountain ranges. This area is a popular choice for those looking for a little more seclusion.
