Located off the beaten path near downtown Bozeman, Little Star Diner strives to provide high-quality, organic and locally-sourced ingredients to the people of Bozeman. The husband and wife duo grow most of their own for the diner, and source the rest through area farmers and ranchers. Because of this unique business model, their menu is always shifting with seasonal availability. All this to say, their food is awesome.

 

HIKE TO PALISADE FALLS IN HYALITE CANYON

Just under an hour drive from Bozeman, Hyalite Canyon is full of stunning natural wonders to explore with your dad this Father's Day. With a mile-long approach with minimal elevation gain, this stunning waterfall is a sight worth seeing in the canyon. Bring a picnic to enjoy after at the Palisade Falls Picnic Area!

Drive down towards Big Sky, find your favorite pullout and put your waders on. That's the name of the game when it comes to catching fish on the Gallatin River. The Gallatin provides the community with year-round fishing opportunities for the ambitious angler.
