Montana has been in the spotlight quite a bit lately. Whether it's the Governor trying to ban TikTok, the millions of people visiting Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, or the fact the entire country seems to be obsessed with the Yellowstone series and all of the spinoffs based here in The Treasure State.

The truth is, there is a lot to do and see in Montana. Whether you're looking for small-town charm, a good old-fashioned rodeo, or something a little more eclectic, you'll find it here in Montana.

So it shouldn't be a big surprise that one Montana town recently made the list of coolest towns in America from a popular website.

Thrilllist came out with their list of the coolest small cities in America and the list included a very popular Montana town. Of course, depending on who you ask, some Montanans might disagree, but the list is the list.

Which Montana town made the list of the Coolest Smallest Cities In America?

Bozeman, Montana made the list as one of the coolest small cities in America and as someone living in Bozeman, I tend to agree. However, Bozeman is a lightning rod for a lot of folks, and as the city and its popularity grow, so does the state-wide hate.

Referred to as "Bozangles" by many Montanans, Bozeman has seen a boom in the last few years with people from all over the world moving here. The city is diverse, and one of the most desirable locations in the United States. Of course, all of that comes with a price. Houses are expensive, the traffic is bad, and there is a growing homeless population, but none of those things have stopped folks from coming here.

The truth is, Bozeman has a bit of a resort town feel and while that attracts a ton of tourists, it also allows for some impressive features for everyday residents.

Thrillist went on to say that part of what makes Bozeman cool is the access to all the outdoor activities, Montana State University, The Museum of the Rockies, live music and entertainment, and all the great food you can find at the different restaurants around town.
