We're 2 MSU alums who come back to visit at least once a year. Don't know if it's just my husband and I, but it seems like Bozeman is starting to look like a shell city. Best I can describe this is to say that it looks like it tries very hard to please tourists, but when my husband and I visit our old local haunts, we notice a big difference. Off Main street there's a lot of graffiti and boarded up buildings. Lamme is so sad right now, and City Center Inn, with most of its windows shattered on the ground makes it look like no one cares anymore. I think I saw more homeless and their camping structures this trip than any other trip in the past, from right when you get off the highway, every entrance and exit to Wal-Mart, Costco, and the shopping center behind Bed, Bath, and Beyond, and the downtown parks, man I couldn't believe how many people had just set up living areas or were just sleeping on the ground. For the longtime Bozeman residents what changes have you noticed? Is it just because we pop in and pop out that we're missing the bigger picture, maybe nothing has changed and it's always been this way? What places would you recommend we visit next time? We're looking at a Christmas-season trip, but will probably not be able to make it for the Stroll.
