Play it cool in these scenic small towns that know just how to embrace winter.

Bozeman, MT

4 of 14

Visitors to Yellowstone and the epic ski mountain at Big Sky often fly into Bozeman and head onward. But it’s worth lingering in this eclectic community of artists, outdoorsmen, and college students. Lined with turn-of-the-century buildings that once outfitted miners and ranchers (indeed, some still do outfit the latter), Main Street now caters to locals with coffeehouses, galleries, sports bars, and shops for vintage clothes and handmade jewelry. When snowflakes fall on the red brick façades, everything is even more atmospheric. 

Winter Fun: Make the day trip to test your mushing skills with Yellowstone Dog Sledding Adventures. The mountain scenery, fresh winter air, and pitter-patter of husky paws on snow distill Montana’s wilderness to its purest incarnation.
