Now that you've set up camp, it's time to head into town. There is some parking available, for smaller motorhomes and campers, but it's best to find another way to get around if you're traveling in a big rig. Once in town, take a walk down Main Street and take in all that downtown Bozeman has to offer. Grab a bite to eat, pop into some of the shops, and take a tour of the galleries that line the historic road. Enjoy music on Main every Thursday during the summer and stop in at the farmer's market for some fresh, local produce. You may even be surprised by a live event during your walk around town.
Bozeman is home to the Museum of the Rockies, which showcases fossils from all kinds of dinosaurs. Enjoy learning about one of the largest collections of North American dinosaurs in the world. With active research occurring at the MOR, there are always new exhibits and findings happening. While you're there, make sure to visit the Taylor Planetarium and spend some time looking up at the stars. This attraction is fun for the entire family. An added bonus is the overflow parking that is available free of charge at the Museum. If one museum isn't enough for you, head over to the equally as exciting Gallatin History Museum. Once an old jail, this converted museum will take you through the history of Gallatin County.
Want to get out into nature? Custer Gallatin National Forest is in Bozeman's backyard and offers over three thousand acres of forest to explore. Gather your gang for a hike to Storm Castle Peak. While the hike isn't too challenging, the views at the top will take your breath away. The Forest also has entrances to the beautiful Yellowstone National Park, one of which is just an hour's drive outside of Bozeman. As one of the most popular National Parks in the United States, it attracts a lot of visitors, and for good reason. You can watch the famous Old Faithful geyser erupt or go horseback riding to experience the natural beauty the park has to offer.
