Bozeman, MT

Montanan suggesting living anywhere else in state - 4/24/2017
I'm a born and raised Montanan and have lived in every part of the state and Bozeman is my least favorite place so far. I came here for the college (which is way too experience for being taught only by TA's) and can't wait to get out.

Pros: Beautiful views, great hiking paths, dog friendly, low crime

Cons: Housing is insane! Everyone has a dog here and yet no rentals allow pets so you're forced to either buy a house or sneak your pet in. Bozeman is currently the fastest growing city in the U.S. at 4.6% growth and the city has not prepared at all for it. The streets are confusing and it is a 3-hour wait to get a title certificate or licence plates from the Treasurer's Office. The winter gets depressing if you aren't a snow bum because there is nothing else to do but that or become an alcoholic and join everyone downtown. It seems like everyone here is unfriendly and depressed, which actually could be the case considering how few sunny days there are. The nicest people you will meet are the out-of-staters and good luck having any townies even acknowledge you. The hospital has a monopoly on all the health care centers so physicians are paid crap and the prices for care are ridiculous. Speaking of wages, the average wage for someone with a bachelor's degree in Bozeman is $15/hour with the average rental costing $1,800 for a 2 bedroom place.
