Where the spirit of Northwest Montana lives. Where the mighty mountains of the Crown of the Continent soar. Where the cold, clear Flathead River snakes from wild lands in Glacier National Park and the Bob Marshall Wilderness to the largest freshwater lake in the west. Where you can plan ahead for a trip of wonder - or let each new moment lead your adventures. Follow the open road to see what's at the very end. Lay out the map and chart a course to its furthest corner. Or explore the galleries, museums, and shops in historic downtown Kalispell - and maybe let the bakery tempt you into an unexpected sweet treat.
Here in the heart of the Flathead Valley, life is awe-inspiring and simple at the same time. If we wish to lose ourselves, there's millions of acres of protected, pristine forest to wander. If we wish to find ourselves, we need only to channel the confident frontier spirit that drove the development of a regional economic, cultural, and governmental powerhouse. These Western roots form the strong foundation for a growing and diversifying community. Which is to say, we are proud of our history but we don't plan on slowing down anytime soon.
