There are a ton of cool things to check out in Gallatin County, but what places scream 'Bozeman, Montana'?
We asked fellow Montanans which places they would suggest and we received a ton of great answers. We then took those answers and compiled a Top 10 list of the best places for ESPN's College Gameday to check out while they're here for Cat/Griz.
#10 MSU Campus
Montana State University is certainly a beautiful campus. With a combination of both old and new, it makes for a wonderful walking tour. From the MSU book store to the new addition to Bobcat Stadium, ESPN can't go wrong with a walk around campus.
#9 The M Trail
While it might require some warm boots with spikes on them, a hike to the M would certainly be a nice little cardio workout for the ESPN Crew. Plus, the views are pretty impressive.
#8 Hyalite Reservoir
One of the prettiest spots in the Bozeman area, Hyalite Reservoir is a popular with folks of all ages, not to mention Palisade Falls is right there and is quite breathtaking, no matter the season.
#7 Cats Paw
Folks that have been in Bozeman for more than 10 minutes all seem to have a story about the Cats Paw. No matter if you're looking for a beverage or some grub after a night of beverages, the Cats Paw is classic Bozeman and definitely worth ESPN's time.
#6 Rockin' R Bar
The Rockin' R Bar has been Rockin' Bozeman since 1947. The Rockin' R is one of the most popular spots for Cats fans of all ages, including the players. Located in beautiful downtown Bozeman, ESPN would no doubt have a Rockin' good time.
#5 Downtown Bozeman
In what many believe to be one of the most beautiful downtown areas in Montana, the heart of Bozeman offers a whole lot to see and do. From really cool and quirky shops to amazing dining options, ESPN will want to make sure to spend some time in downtown Bozeman.
#4 Western Cafe
A perfect example of not only old-school Bozeman, but old-school Montana, the Western Cafe has been a local favorite for decades. It's just a simple, delicious cafe that serves up some of the best comfort food you're ever going to have.
The Western is an absolute must for the Gameday crew.
#3 Bobcat Tailgate Parties
One of the best parts of the whole game day experience in Bozeman is tailgating. Bobcat fans love getting together to grill and drink. There's nothing better than getting together with fellow Bobcat fanatics and hanging out before the game, during the game, and after the game to cheer on our beloved Cats.
There's no doubt that the folks of ESPN will want to hang out a bit and tailgate with Cat fans.
#2 Museum of the Rockies
The Museum of the Rockies is not only the finest museum in Montana, it's also one of the best in the nation. The Museum of the Rockies has one of the finest displays of dinosaur fossils that you'll ever see. Plus, they have a great display of Montana history that is a must-see.
#1 Pickle Barrel
You can't come to Bozeman and not stop at the Pickle Barrel. While Bozeman has a ton of really good places to eat, none is more popular than the little sandwich shop over at College Street across from the MSU campus. The Pickle Barrel has been serving up those famous sandwiches since 1975 and for many MSU alum, it's the first stop they make when they come back to Bozeman.
The Game Day crew most definitely will want to try a Pickle Barrel cheesesteak.
