Southwest Airlines is on the map in Montana! Planning a trip to Bozeman? There are so many adventures to enjoy, like hiking and camping in Yellowstone, kayaking in Hyalite Reservoir, and exploring Ousel Falls. Tune in to learn about things to do in Bozeman, Montana.
- Just a short drive separates Bozeman and Yellowstone National Park, making the landmark a must-see on your Montana itinerary. Whether you plan to camp or visit the park for a day trip, you’re sure to experience wildlife, like bison, elk, mule deer, trout, owls, and more, as well as the native trees and naturescape. Yellowstone is home to Old Faithful, a geyser that erupts roughly 20 times per day.
- Hyalite Reservoir offers a variety of activities and is a great place to spend the day. Hit the water in a kayak, paddleboard, or fishing boat and enjoy the scenery, or drop in a line and see if you can catch a cutthroat trout or arctic grayling. Just remember that the reservoir has a no-wake rule, so motor at slow speeds only. There are also campgrounds available on the shores of the reservoir, so spend a full day and enjoy from sun-up to dun-down and everything in between.
- Fins & Feathers is a locally-owned and operated Montana fly fishing outfitter located in Bozeman, Montana, five miles west of downtown Bozeman at the Southwest corner of the intersection of HWY 191 & 84. During their 20 years in business, they have developed a reputation as being the “fishiest” fly shop in Bozeman. Beyond providing anglers with the best knowledge, gear, and flies around, they also offer FREE fly fishing classes and guided fishing trips. Fly fishing is their passion and helping other anglers get the most out of their time on the water is what they do best. Whether you just need a few flies for the evening hatch or would like help planning a guided Bozeman fly fishing vacation, they can help you out with expert advice and a friendly attitude.
- For an experience off the “bleatin’” path, check out a Goat Farm visit at Gallatin Gateway. Through this unique adventure, you’ll explore the area while observing a small herd of goats. We’re not “kid”-ding around when we say it’s a must-do!
