March is the promise of Spring!

Wow! Did we get a lot of snow recently! We have had record levels all at one time, but should be on par for a good runoff when the cumulative amount melts. Rafting should be as fun as last year, fishing will need to wait, hiking will be muddy for a little while and the wildflowers will again be colorful and expansive. Let us know if you are coming for a visit, we have a special rate with our local Hilton Garden Inn and some vacation rentals options in multiple areas.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act signed into law by President Donald Trump in December of 2017 appears to have provided a positive shock to Montana businesses and households as lower tax rates and

The Bozeman area has the strongest economy for a city with fewer than 50,000 people in the U.S., according to a new national report.

Each year, independent research firm POLICOM ranks areas for “economic strength” — the long-term tendency for a place to grow in size and quality. For a second year in a row, Bozeman topped the micropolitan list.

Bozeman was one of 551 micropolitan areas in the report. Each has an urban center of at least 10,000 but fewer than 50,000 people. To ensure it’s more than a fleeting trend, the rankings measured 23 factors over 16 years.
