Play: Here’s a city where you can pack all that fun-looking dog gear you’ve accumulated. Nestled in the Rocky Mountains, Bozeman has over 67 miles of hiking trails. “The pride of Bozeman’s canine community is a 37-acre off-leash dog area at Snowfill Recreation Area,” says Kawczynska. “If that weren’t enough, ground was recently broken at Gallatin Regional Park for a new 13-acre dog park with amenities like ponds, diving docks, and a dog sports area.”
Stay: Opened in April 2015, The Lark is Bozeman’s version of a bohemian boutique hotel. At this downtown property, which offers six designated pet suites (from $110, plus a $35 pet fee), guest rooms are adorned with funky wall art and Eames Rocker Chairs, and there’s a Victory Taco truck stationed permanently outside.
Eat: Montana Ale Works is a popular freight house-turned-restaurant that happens to be a 10-minute walk down West Main Street from The Lark. Another nearby dog-friendly watering hole is Bozeman Brewing, where locals will rightly tell you to order the Plum St. Porter.Back to top
