Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Super easy hike with a little bit of hard breathing. Nice to have the paved path, I’m nursing a bad knee so did not want uneven surfaces. We got there early & there was only one other car in parking lot. By the time we got back to our vehicles it was a busy parking lot & we passed a family & anotger few hikers going up as we were headed down.

    Downtown Bozeman centers around Main Street going about a block North and a block South. It is full of shops, stores and restaurants. I’m staying at a hotel not far off the main drag and it is in easy walking distance. I visited several shops, went to one of the restaurants and scoped out places to eat for the rest of my visit. I’m planning to visit a few more shops as time permits. Definitely the place to be.

    The drive down Gallatin Canyon is awesome the scenary was incredible and the waters were crystal clear. There are plenty of places to stop off along the way and take in the awesome scenary.

    Snow beautifies any landscape. Well, this one really is gorgeous. Hills, river, forests etc. The river is obviously the centerpiece of the views. A long stretch is protected land inside Yellowstone NP. Caution that the road is also dangerous, especially below Big Sky where folks often are tanked up after skiing, mixed with flatlander rookie drivers in the mountains who rented non-4WD-non-snow tired vehicles, ugh, watch out. Still, would definitely return again and again, as worth the risk ;)

    Fun and good service. They offered tastings however there is not a lot that goes with their story or so it seems. They offer several different spirits from whiskey, vodka, MT style tequila (yes I know you cannot call it Tequila and they don’t!), and gin. They have several infused spirits that are unique to the area. If I visit a distillery I like to learn about them and where their products come from, not the case here. It didn’t stop me from sampling and purchasing though 😁

    The library is in the middle of construction but services did not seem to be affected very much. I love the coffee shop and used book area.

    An amazing winter hike to the falls. Totally worth it! It was easy to follow the tracks. We went back on the other trail and enjoyed the other ice falls.

    If you have a chance to attend the opera, symphony or ballet here you will be absolutely amazed by the intimacy of this venue. It is lovely to behold and even more lovely to partake of the performances here.

    We needed to kill a bit of time so we walked around here for a bit. Very clean, nice walkable paths, pretty views. Also the dog park appeared to be very well used as there were several dogs running around. The two ponds were nice, both had ducks in them and you can swim in one of the ponds.

    This was an easy but very special hike. You follow a creek up a gently sloping mountain. Restorative and calming. Gorgeous views from the top while standing in the middle of a field of wildflowers. So lovely and peaceful, felt like The Sound of Music.

    After visiting the Bozeman Sculpture Park, I continued on and went into Burke Park to walk up Peets Hill. It was an easy walk with a bit of an incline. There were other people walking, people with their dogs off leash (made some puppy friends) and bikers. It was a very popular spot on a Sunday morning, but mainly with locals. It didn’t take me long to get to the top and views from Peets Hill were great, over the city and of the mountains in the distance. I went back a different way and headed into Lindley Park which is right next to the library. Great way to get a little exercise.

    The Bozeman Sculpture Park is a fine walking experience behind the Public Library. A diverse array of figurative and abstract sculptures line the sidewalk, and the quality of the art is generally very good. Paul Harris’s “Woman on the Beach,” whose pair of arching forms suddenly become the beachgoers’ legs, and Steve Connell’s “Cartoon,” a bright yellow enameled metal construction, were outstanding encounters along the way.

    Thanks to the many organizations and individuals who have had a hand in creating and maintaining this great swimming spot. It has a really nice, low-key feel to it — just local families (and a few visitors, like us) enjoying the water and a picnic on a sunny summer day.

    Lovely shop, and what made today's visit especially so was the exceptional customer care & enthusiasm received from Ezra. It is rare these days to find someone so knowledgeable & helpful. I made my first purchase today (there will be others) and I couldn't be happier with my experience.

    kind regards,
    Joe

    Mall is a nice option in the winter for indoor activity. Games for kids and basic food court keeps the kids entertained. The Bay restaurant is a nice option if you want a little something more than the basic food court. Shops are fun to browse through. I heard someone say it was the largest indoor carpeted mall in America. I wouldn’t be surprised.
