For the past several years, Bozeman, Montana, was named the country’s fastest-growing micropolitan area. The 2020 Census officially pushed the population into a metropolitan, with 53,293 residents.

It’s easy to understand why. Surrounded by four mountain ranges and just 90 minutes from Yellowstone National Park, the outdoor recreation is mind-boggling. Bridger Bowl Ski Area and Crosscut Mountain Sports Centers are less than a half-hour drive up the beautiful Bridger Canyon.

Livingston, Montana, is known for its eclectic population.

If you are planning to shop, allocate more time than you think you will need. The retail scene is incredible, with new stores popping up all the time. Livingston is known for having many artists and writers as residents, so galleries and bookstores have always been plentiful.
