Live Like the Locals
Get the Most Our of Our Great Town
Not all of Bozeman’s best features are found in the wild. In town
you’ll discover a host of shops, venues, and events that are perfect
for a day of strolling the streets or night on the town. Bozeman offers
all of the small-town charm combined with big city culture. The combination
is one that can’t be found in many other places.
Just one glance down Main Street feels like a glimpse back in time, and
yet it’s populated with every modern convenience you could ask for.
We’ve put together a list of our favorite places to be when it comes
to getting the most out of our great town.
Great for all ages, this museum holds some incredible wonders from both
past and present. Guests can stand in rooms stacked with actual T-Rex
skeletons, or stroll through a breathtaking photography exhibit with over
40 of the top National Geographic photos ever taken.
Stepping through the doors of the Ellen Theater for a show feels a lot
like stepping back in time. Still in much of its original state, the vintage
theater hosts local plays, old movie reruns, and traveling artists and
The Emerson Cultural Center
The Emerson is made up of two different levels. On the main floor you’ll
find smaller one-person galleries with art for purchase, while upstairs
are studios where you can chat with working artists. Finish your trip
to Emerson at the Emerson Grill for great wines, sustainable produce,
and an intimate atmosphere.
This quirky café is a local favorite, known around town for its
list of sassy stipulations for all customers. (If you want water, ask
for it. If you want poached eggs, go somewhere else.) Bring in your cat
eye glasses for 50 cents off any meal (but don’t take them off or
you’ll lose your discount).
Insiders tip: Leaving before you try the banana bread French toast is an
injustice to yourself.
If you’re looking for a less spunky breakfast spot, the Wild Crumb
is one of our favorites. Located off North Wallace, this spot offers a
nice break from downtown with artisan breads and pastries made daily.
The moment you walk into Blackbird, you’re wrapped in the crisp smell
of an open wood burning stove. Wood fired pizzas, local meats, and organic
greens make this eatery one of the more savory stops along Main.
Yes, we are putting a food truck as a must-try on our list. This vintage,
aluminum RV swept the city by storm ever since it settled onto Main—selling
tacos from one end and local ice cream from the other.
Insider’s Tip: For tacos, try the Kim Jong, Fin, or Piggly Wiggly.
Or all three! They’re not too big.
Insider’s Tip: For ice cream, try the flavor of the day. It’s
usually something interesting like Basil Coconut or Sweet Corn Huckleberry.
Located directly across from Victory, this new distillery is one that won’t
disappoint. Pop in for their huckleberry vodka, or make your way next
door to the brewery for a beer. Order straight from Victory Taco while
at either and they’ll bring it right to you.
This posh cocktail, wine bar, and restaurant combo feels like it belongs
on the bustling street of some metropolis. Their upscale but relaxed atmosphere
is the perfect place to cozy up with friends or family around craft cocktails
and a decadent cheese board.
As one of Bozeman’s newer breweries to town, MAP has had a sensational
start in the city and one visit makes it clear why. Situated on the banks
of Glen Lake Park, the brewery offers wide open views of the Bridger mountains
that look close enough to touch. Locals can sit by the fireplace under
large vaulted ceilings or sip their brew on the back patio, where dogs
are welcome and encouraged to take a dip in Glen Lake.
Another newer drink stop in Bozeman, Corx is one you won’t want to
skip. The husband and wife-owned winery offers an intimate atmosphere
to grab a glass (or a flight) and snack on small plates. Decked with local
artwork and run by a spirited staff, Corx is a Main Street must-see.
Insider’s Tip: Try their Corx’s house blend red. It’s
affordable and will be one of your new all-around favorites.
