What is up with Bozeman? I feel like Bozeman really started becoming a popular place to visit in the past few years. It looks really cool from friends' pictures who have visited so I'd be down to go too, but I still don't know why the sudden boom in popularity.

There are a few others on Thrillist's list but let's get to the midwest city that they said is one of the best in the US for a weekend getaway. And that would be Chicago.
