#4 Western Cafe

A perfect example of not only old-school Bozeman, but old-school Montana, the Western Cafe has been a local favorite for decades. It's just a simple, delicious cafe that serves up some of the best comfort food you're ever going to have.

The Western is an absolute must for the Gameday crew.

#3 Bobcat Tailgate Parties

One of the best parts of the whole game day experience in Bozeman is tailgating. Bobcat fans love getting together to grill and drink. There's nothing better than getting together with fellow Bobcat fanatics and hanging out before the game, during the game, and after the game to cheer on our beloved Cats.

There's no doubt that the folks of ESPN will want to hang out a bit and tailgate with Cat fans.

#2 Museum of the Rockies

The Museum of the Rockies is not only the finest museum in Montana,  it's also one of the best in the nation. The Museum of the Rockies has one of the finest displays of dinosaur fossils that you'll ever see. Plus, they have a great display of Montana history that is a must-see.

#1 Pickle Barrel

You can't come to Bozeman and not stop at the Pickle Barrel. While Bozeman has a ton of really good places to eat, none is more popular than the little sandwich shop over at College Street across from the MSU campus. The Pickle Barrel has been serving up those famous sandwiches since 1975 and for many MSU alum, it's the first stop they make when they come back to Bozeman.

The Game Day crew most definitely will want to try a Pickle Barrel cheesesteak.
