Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce
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 from the Horseshoe Hills, the Bridger Range and the snow-capped Spanish Peaks Wilderness. Special events, seasonal festivals and a thriving business community celebrate Manhattan's heritage and rural lifestyle.
At 4200 feet you'll enjoy the best of all four seasons here in our little valley. Manhattan is 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.
The Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce was established in 1988. Our purpose is to promote a business district which can meet the needs of the Manhattan area so that its citizens and business community will prosper.
