Manhattan is a great place to live and raise a family and is close enough to Bozeman to enjoy all of its amenities, but far enough away to get away from all of the hustle and bustle. Manhattan is one of Montana's great small towns and the surrounding area has earned a reputation for world-class fly fishing, hunting, and skiing.
