Yellowstone National Park is nearly 3,500-sq.-miles of the wilderness recreation area that spreads all through Montana, Wyoming, and part of Idaho. This national park is one of the world’s greatest attractions for those hoping to get a taste of the outdoors. Just like Big Sky, the beginning of Yellowstone is only an hour south of Penrose.

At Yellowstone, you’ll find anything from elk, bison, wolves, and bears! This park also has a lot of volcanic activity. There are a number of geysers in the area, the most famous of them being Old Faithful. There are natural hot springs that you can take a plunge in.

Aside from these attractions, the biggest attraction is the miles and miles of hiking trails for you to enjoy. Some of the hikes will take you to the base of Fairy Falls, or catch an amazing view from up above. There are so many sights to see in Yellowstone, and you get to experience all of them firsthand while living at Penrose apartments in Bozeman, MT.

Sweet Pea Capital of the Nation

Historically, Bozeman Montana was known as the sweet pea capital of the nation! At one time, they were responsible for exporting 75% of the nation’s seed peas. The area had a strong agricultural presence as the Gold Rush began to bring people to the area. Many farms started as a result of the population increase, and sweet peas happened to be the most prominent.

Did you know this fun fact about Bozeman? Bozeman Montana is known for much more than sweet peas now as the city has grown into a thriving community.



While Bozeman Montana is known for many things, the most important quality of Bozeman is the life you make for yourself here. Whether you’re rock climbing, backcountry exploring, skiing, or bike riding, your opportunities are endless at Penrose.

What could be better than getting a taste of adventure whenever you’d like, but coming home to your own retreat where you can recharge for your next exploration? Not much.
