A boys day in Bozeman means that you and your grandson can both get in touch with your wild sides and enjoy all that the West has to offer. Getting some quality kid time is a snap in this mountain town, where activities with the grandson are easy. From dinos to drama, and good eats to boot, you can’t go wrong on a boys’ day out.
Get Going with Games
Does it even count as toy shopping if the selection is educational and fun? Check out Giggles: Toys and More, a Bozeman institution. Locally owned and operated for more than a decade in the Gallatin Valley Mall, this shop is one for the books. With 4,000 packed square feet of toys and games for all ages, the only challenge will be for the kiddo to pick just one (or five)! Or grab a new board game, and you can both battle it out together to see who wins the day. Activities for boys in Bozeman can come home with you too—just have him pick out a special present at Giggles.
Museum of the Rockies
The mysteries of the past have been unearthed at Museum of the Rockies, where it’s easy to imagine dinosaurs roaming the Earth. Towering skeletons and interactive displays will keep ahold of any age’s imagination, including yours. Wander in wonder and take the chance to learn something new while you enjoy activities with the grandson all through the museum. Don’t be afraid to get a little dirty at the living history farm, where you can experience Montana the way the cowboys would have way back when. And inside, you can beat the heat with a 3D presentation at the planetarium. This grandson activity in Bozeman will get both of you into history.
Dig in at the Garage Soup Shack and Mesquite Grill
A great spot for a quick afternoon bite, The Garage brings a retro vibe to lunch that even the youngsters can appreciate. The rotating selection of soups, sandwiches and burgers can suite the pickiest of young palates, and the decor will take you back to sock hops and soda fountains of days gone by. He’ll love sinking his teeth into a juicy burger, and you might even be able to persuade him to split that towering chocolate sundae if you ask nicely—or just sneak a nibble or two when he’s looking the other way.

A Dramatic Evening at the Ellen Theater

And in the age of television and tablets, getting out of the hotel room and into a lavish historic theater makes for an unforgettable experience you’ll both treasure. Boys can appreciate a bit of glamour with the best of them, especially if a live drama is featured center stage.
