Weekend Getaway Part II
After a nights stay in Three Forks at the Sacajawea Hotel we traveled on to Bozeman, MT. With a myriad of outdoor activities right out the back door, Bozeman has attracted several high tech companies over the past decade and with it a growing population and a fun, entrepreneurial vibe that perfectly compliments this university town. Boasting a bustling downtown area filled with breweries, distilleries, boutiques, and eclectic restaurants, it reminds me of a miniature Portland, OR . .without the traffic or months of drenching rain. (I lived in the Portland/Vancouver area for 28 years).
Here we went modern and stayed in an Airbnb that Lisa had booked. It was my first experience with an Airbnb and our hosts were fun and their home lovely.
Since our goal was a weekend of indulgence we had booked massages at the Canyon River Spa. After Champagne, fluffy terry cloth robes, a steam room session, and possibly the most amaaaaaazing massage I have ever had, I walked out of the spa feeling like a noodle. . . a well cooked one.
Shopping and eating and eating more were also on our agenda. Meridian Boutique has a great assortment of curated goodies hand picked by the local owners.
The best part, in my opinion, was the eating. . . .
Blackbird: wood fired ovens, locally raised meats, pizza, pasta, wine, beer. . . All good.
Dave's Sushi is always a good idea. I love the texture of the seaweed salad. Who knew seaweed could be so tasty?!
I forget what they called this drink but it was delicious. Bozeman Spirits has a great assortment of spirits and recipes to go with them.
I had forgotten how much I like Bozeman and how fun it is to explore. I was reminded that I need to make this trip more often!
