Experience life in the center of it all. A place where the spectacular mountains rise, the crystal-clear rivers and lakes sparkle, the comfortable accommodations rejuvenate and the tasty craft beers refresh.
And while we want you to come to Kalispell, we want you to wait. Instead, plan a trip for the future. Make a top 10 list of things you want to do when you visit Montana. See Glacier National Park anytime you want through the park’s webcams. Make a list of the breweries you’re going to visit and the hikes you’re going to take. And remember that no matter what, we’re all in this together. Our rivers, trails, mountains and community will be right here waiting for you when the time is right.
The center of the Flathead Valley is Kalispell, a relaxing Western getaway tucked between the splendorous mountains of Glacier National Park and the crystal-clear waters of Flathead Lake. Kalispell’s charming downtown shopping district, craft breweries and distilleries, dozens of restaurants with a dash of Montana flavor, and outdoor recreation activities for families of all ages make it the perfect base camp for anyone traveling to take in a day, a week or even more in the wilds of Northwest Montana.
Traveling to Kalispell is a cinch, too, with Glacier Park International Airport bringing travelers in from around the country daily, an Amtrak train station just up the road in Whitefish and a pair of major Montana highways running right through the center of town. And once you get here, you’ll enjoy clean, friendly accommodations at our many hotels that can fit any budget, all perfect spots to rest up before your next adventure on the water, in the mountains or in any of the plentiful public lands.
Thinking about planning a trip this winter? Staying in Kalispell leaves you squarely between two mountains sure to please any downhill skier or snowboarder, and the acres upon acres of open space are perfect for strapping on a pair of cross-country skis or snowshoes to enjoy landscapes glistening with fresh snow.
