Bozeman kids are funny. Living in Bozeman your whole life gives you a surreal perspextive on the world.

Bozeman used to be fun all around, now it's full of wannabe Aspenites, that can't afford Aspen or Jackson Hole. I actually know 2 millionaires in Bozeman that were "ran out" (Their words, not mine) of Jackson Hole by the billionaires down there. Funny in my opinion.

There are still a lot of cool places and people if you know where to look though.

I'll go back a little further. Forty plus years ago as a small child I remember getting stuck on the way home from church every spring waiting for the real cowboys on horseback to drive their cattle up the street to another pasturing area. Can't see that anymore.

Been back to Bozeman a few times recently. It's still beautiful and, while it's changed in character, Main Street is still vibrant, unlike some similar sized towns. I'd enjoy living there again.

Lol yeah. I tutor at the Ophir school in Big Sky in my free time and the kids are hilarious. Big Sky is a posh fantasy land even moreso than Bozeman.

It's actually just "boots" and/or "hat". If you attach the word "cowboy" to either, it better be in jest to someone you know, or you'll be branded as a stray.

Default Bros....Man

I grew up in Helena, and moved to Bozeman 9 months ago, I'll tell you what I've experienced.

CONS:
1. Lots of dudes, who act like bros. They are definitely in to the nar nar sports like skii-ing, snowboarding, rock climbing, ice climbing... anything to do with ... the nar nar. lol It gets a little ridiculous and excessive at times, and gets under my skin, but if that's the worst a town has to offer, is that so bad? (Please refer to south Parks season 16 Episode "I should have never gone ZipLining" to understand the essence of Bozemans Bros)
2. Anyone 25 or under is probably going to have a bit of an attitude. Especially if they are a Bozeman native. They think they're the ****.
3. Most of the people in this town blend together. They seem to have the same past, the same present and the same future. Esp the natives.
4. Despite the fact that this is kind of an artsy town, the art is very repetitive. It's Montana art... fishin' huntin' bears... so not my style lol The music is almost all the same too either country or some sort of disco funk noise. Not sure what it's called, but I hear it a lot.
5. Downtown night life is LAME. Unless you like sitting around and looking pretty. I actually like to party when I go out, and possibly get in to a little trouble. I haven't had a memorable night in Bozo yet. It's kind of "stuffy" in the party scene.

PROS
1. Lots of health concious/enviornment concious people
2. I've met more genuinely awesome people here (sifting through the bros and the snobs) in the 9 months I've been here than I did in the 24 years I was in Helena.
3. The people here seem to have their **** together, they're going to school, they have hobbies, they make money... I'm used to Helena where almost no one knows what the hell they're doing with their life and they live off of welfare.
4. It's kind of an inspiring town, with everyone always furthering their education or participating in hobbies or events.
5. Art & Music, there's a lot of it. It's... all pretty similar however. So this goes in the Cons section too.

All in all I like it here. The friends I've made, are friends for life. People here want to make friends, which is cool. As an added bonus there are a lot of good looking people here. Some of the girls are stunning, but watch our for the Snobitis, it runs rapid here lol

So you're basically bigoted against middle America yet you want to move there. Eventually the area will become dominated by people like you and the place will be just like the one that you are fleeing.

As part of this, the way of life there will be challenged (anti gun, anti Christian, etc.) and the locals won't have as much money as the interlopers so they will be forced to live in less desirable areas while their land gets choked with strip malls, mini mansions, and resorts they can't afford.

I'm confused as to why this is a con. Is it because of the way they act? I think about moving to bozeman because I love all of those sports...it seems like an amazing area to participate in those activities because of the vast mountains. People are always going to lump into a category...that's why south park is awesome, it makes fun of everyone. It's an outdoorsy city, so I'm assuming there are some like-minded folks there who are interested in those types of activities.

Over 50% of the population with a college degree... wow! Can a middle aged woman with a high school diploma and years of experience get a descent paying job here? It doesn't sound like I could afford to live in Bozeman. Why are housing and living expenses so high here?
