Summer kicks into full swing with 4th of July celebrations along with an extensive line up of entertainment and events to keep us having fun through Labor Day and beyond! Summertime in Montana is spectacular, and we can’t wait to share some of the sunny days and good times with our friends and guests this year. With numerous daily direct flights to Yellowstone Bozeman International Airport, you can get here quickly, so pack a bag and escape to the mountains. There is still plenty of summer left!
A summer’s ‘Day in the Life’ of a Big Sky/Bozeman resident or traveler always includes great hikes, invigorating mountain bike rides, and horseback riding on our hundreds of miles of trails. You will also find us fishing, floating, or rafting on our pristine blue-ribbon streams. A visit to Yellowstone National Park is on every traveler’s bucket list, and locals alike enjoy regular journeys into the park, as there is always something new and exciting to discover! There are so many ways to experience our great outdoors. Additionally, you can round out your Montana vacation with some of the other great activities and events featured below.
MOUNTAIN AIR GOLF
The golf course in Big Sky has some of the best views in the country, and their online booking system makes it easy to schedule tee times in advance of your visit. Be sure to play a round while you are here! In Bozeman, Bridger Creek and Cottonwood Hills offer public access as well. Bridger Creek has an 18 hole course, driving range, and Rocky Mountain Golf Academy – a premier short game practice facility. Cottonwood has an 18 hole course and an executive par 3 course. Great for a quick game, or fun with the kids!
