Literary Tourism: Bozeman, Montana

If you are in the Montana area (and yes, I know that’s some wide area), you may want to plan a bit of a trip to Bozeman to check out some of these literary locations.

On the northern tip of Yellowstone National Park, a bit west of where Montana takes on the weird landscape one finds in a book by Dr. Seuss, lies the small college town of Bozeman. For those who haven’t been, the west side of Montana (and really the entire state) is bonkers beautiful. I’ve driven through Montana on trips from Michigan to the West Coast and back about three times each way, and I’ve stopped in Bozeman on two of those occasions. Home to Montana State University, Bozeman has the same hip coffeehouses, indie bookstores, esoteric boutiques, and niche restaurants of many other college locales, perhaps with a dash of Twin Peaks added in. Needless to say, it’s awesome and you should go to there.

My recommendation: Go camp in either Yellowstone or Glacier depending on which direction you’re coming from, spend a few days relaxing in Bozeman, and then go camp in the other national park. Of course, this is assuming you have time and resources to do so.

Anyway, here’s some bookish stuff worth checking out while you’re there.
