Review of Bozeman, Montana


Pls Review Bozeman MT
Star Rating - 1/30/2016
I currently live in the SF Bay Area and 3 of my empty-nester friends have recently moved to Bozeman. These 3 different families moved there because friends of theirs also moved there. It feels like a quiet migration is happening. Can you please do a more in-depth review of Bozeman, MT? Thanks, R

Yes, you are correct. There is a huge migration to Bozeman and Gallatin Valley. Record-breaking growth actually.

My husband and I (senior citizens) moved to Bozeman two years ago, bought a home just in time, before prices really skyrocketed. We absolutely love this area, and yes, we came from CA. People here are a bit touchy about the migration of CA people, but also have a pre-conceived stereotype that we're all rich and snobs. We don't fit in that category. (although they seem to find something to gripe about from any non-natives) but we've made some wonderful friends and believe that the majority of people here are very friendly and accepting. It's absolutely beautiful and we don't mind the winters at all. Working from home makes it a lot easier seeing we don't have to drive to work in foul weather. It is more expensive than we thought, but the beauty and amenities make up for that. Below find some recent articles about this area that might help you. Best of luck with your decision! https://www.bozemandailychronicle.com/news/business/gallatin-county-economy-ranked-strongest-of-its-size-in-u/article_9bb7afe7-551a-54dc-bc81-c8c55e1685a1.html http://blog.bozemancvb.com/blog/whats-driving-the-economy-of-bozeman http://www.athomeinbozeman.com/Blog/Montanas-Economy-Leads-The-Nation
