The Alternative:

Bozeman, Montana

From the quaint downtown to the sprawling landscapes, Bozeman offers the million dollar lifestyle of Aspen at a fraction of the cost. Biking and hiking trails abound, and the Yellowstone River affords world-renowned fishing opporunities. Not the outdoorsy type? Take in the history of Bozeman at the Gallatin Pioneer Museum, or relax and rejuvenate at the Canyon River Spa. With an average of 320 days of sunshine a year – 20 more than Aspen! – and a median home price of $275,000, Bozeman is certainly a great alternative.[ad#in_content_500]
