Review of Bozeman, Montana

Earns the name "Last Best Place", if you can handl
Star Rating - 6/29/2014
I'm a southern transplant here & I've been here for over 12 years. I've lived all over the US. This is my Utopia. (Almost!) But it's not for everyone. The winter is WAY long, but if you enjoy snow, it is the perfect place. The air is very dry, and hot in the summer, although it is a brief season. Most houses do not even have A/C. The college MSU provides a lot of opportunities.
I've seen many young families move in and out over the years, because it is expensive - but still less than most major cities. You are paying for the view. And it's a good one, from almost every neighborhood in the Gallatin Valley you have a 360 view of mountains.
I'm not too worried about this post attracting too many people, because like I said, the winters are LONG, growing season is short, & I've seen a lot of people move away. Bozeman is perfect- for the right people!
