The community of Manhattan is located in south-central Montana, 20 minutes west of Bozeman.
It is surrounded by wide open spaces and rural roadways, offering stunning views
of small family potato and dairy farms, wheat fields, sweeping mountain ranges,
and lots of wildlife. Scenic views abound: The Horseshoe Hills, the Bridger Range,
and the snow-capped Spanish Peaks Wilderness. Special community events and seasonal
festivals celebrate Manhattan's heritage and rural lifestyle.
At 4200 feet you'll enjoy the best of all four seasons here in our little valley,
affectionately nicknamed the "Banana Belt" because of its benign climate.
Spring weather brings vibrant blooming wild flowers followed by balmy summers with
a mean temperature of 81 degrees in August. Crisp colorful autumns bring the promise
of great fishing and wildlife viewing, while winter finds snowy peaks surrounding
Manhattan - perfect for skiing, snowshoeing and other winter activities.
