By that, we mean Town and Country (but you should start calling it T&C like the locals do!) There are several big-box grocery stores in Bozeman that are quite nice. However, most Bozemanites prefer our local grocers for excellent customer service, great prices, and to find local produce and other goods. With Town & Country's three locations, there’s really no reason to go anywhere else.
It took a very long time for Starbucks to make its way to Bozeman, but now there are a lot of them.

While these are two of the main roads to get through Bozeman, they also tend to get the majority of our “traffic”. Luckily, there are many routes and back roads to be taken around here. Take some time and try various routes. Don’t worry, we’re a small town still, you won’t get lost.
We don’t mean leave Bozeman for someplace else, we mean get out to the mountains! If its winter hit the ski slopes and if it’s summer, grab your tent and go. We’re guessing one of the reasons you moved to Bozeman was for the beauty of our mountains…don't just look at them. If you want to live like a local you have to play in them as well.

There are always exceptions and Sweet Pea Festival is one of them. This is Bozeman’s top festival and it is worth sticking in town for. Even though plenty of tourists come just for it, the majority are locals or people who used to live in Bozeman and come back each year for Sweet Pea. There’s the parade, music, arts, kids activities, food and don’t forget tater pigs! (You really can’t consider yourself a local until you’ve had one).
Within a half-hour of Bozeman you can be on the Madison, Yellowstone, Missouri, Jefferson or Gallatin rivers. Learn where they are and what they are known for. A quick cheat sheet. The Madison - floating, Yellowstone and Jefferson - fly fishing, Gallatin - kayaking, Missouri - relaxing.

Bozeman is a wonderful community for giving back. Our non-profits are awesome, partly because so many locals volunteer time and money to these organizations. Whether you want to walk dogs at the Heart of the Valley Humane Society or serve dinners at the Community Cafe, pick one or two and start volunteering. It’s also a great way to meet others.

Winter is for real around here. Starting in October and usually ending somewhere around April (if we’re lucky) you will spend a good amount of time shoveling your driveway and sidewalks. Invest in a good one, and use it once the snow starts falling. If you don’t, the city will give you a ticket and your neighbors will be annoyed because locals don’t let a little snow stop them from getting outside to walk their dogs or go for a run.
We’re just kidding (sort of). You will notice in Bozeman there is an abnormal amount of Subarus driving around. While you don’t have to jump on that bandwagon, a car with all-wheel drive or a good set of snow tires will make winters easier. As for the dog thing, pick whatever breed you want. You’ll quickly find out Bozeman is a very dog-friendly town so it’s best to get on board!
