Bozeman has long been one of our favorite towns, not least because of its restaurant scene and abundance of outdoor activities year round. If you have a free weekend, use this itinerary to discover the best it has to offer.
Montana and Wyoming are home to three of the most popular national parks in the U.S. – and we were pretty lucky to grow up near them. Whether you want to visit Glacier, Yellowstone, or Grand Teton (or all three!), here’s how to make the most of your trip.
Skiing (and snowboarding) definitely isn’t a cheap hobby, but a ski trip doesn’t have to wipe out your savings.
