Hi all! My name is Griffin and I live in Virginia. For the past several years, I've wanted to move to Bozeman. I love the landscape, the town, and the views. I really want to move there soon, but I just have a few questions.

1. Is there any sort of high-speed internet? I've lived (until recently) in a rural area without high-speed most of my life. I recently moved into the "town" near where I live and the difference is night and day! I don't want to have to go back to satellite/dialup/an internet card.

2. How is the job market when it comes to fitness? That's my love in life. Are there jobs available for personal training/yoga instruction/massage therapy?

3. I've always wanted to own a good amount of land, but since there's so much to visit and so many trails near Bozeman, would it be better/more cost-efficient to live in town?

Thanks for the help!

Yes, there is high speed internet in town.
Yes, there are jobs in fitness.
Land is very expensive. Even apartments are pricey in Bozeman.

I would suggest coming here (more than once) before making the move. I am also from back east and found the cost of living similar to NJ, but with lower taxes and cheaper car insurance Salaries however are much lower if you will be working locally.

Welcome! I'm originally from SW Va. To your questions:

1) Yes, high speed internet everywhere and most places in town have free wireless.

2) Lots of opportunities as there are many pilates/yoga/massage studios and gyms with expanding branches due to the population increases.

3) Land is very expensive, homes are more costly than they are in big cities, and people living in developments moving from places like California (where they have lots of rules) impose them on the developments so you don't have much freedom if you can afford a few acres. Live in town, get a mortgage, and make use of the hiking, skiing, fishing, hunting, climbing, and biking all located within 30 minutes of town.

* As Chelliesmom says, definitely come visit before moving. Stay in town and wander around - see if it is the place for you.
