Why Are So Many People Moving to Bozeman? Here’s a Few Reasons
Why has Bozeman become such a hot spot for newcomers? I mean, there are a lot of places that are much more affordable. The answer isn't a simple one. Many people have decided to move to Bozeman for a variety of different reasons.
Some people might say that I'm a part of the problem. I moved to Bozeman in 2016 after I accepted a radio job at Townsquare Media. I'm originally from Boise, Idaho. That's where I got my start in radio. After getting laid off due to budget cuts in 2014, I was looking for a change of scene. Well, enough about my story, let's dig into why so many other people have decided to move to Bozeman in recent years.

Here are a few examples from the Bozeman Reddit page.
Skiing, hunting, mountain biking, good community, etc. I lived in CO for many years before coming here. I know I am "ruining" the place because I wasn't born in 1850 though. I'm sorry about that.
I've been here since 2003, moved from Butte for school, and I've only met a handful of people who are actually from Bozeman.
I moved here for the bagels at bagel works.
1972. I was 6 and my father had the choice of being stationed in either Bozeman or Pocatello. He was from Alaska and told the army whatever one was further north. You would not believe what it was like back then compared to today.
