Glacier National Park.

Crown Jewel of the Continent. Backbone of the World.

Three Names. One Undeniable Beauty. There are some places in the world that take your breath away at the very sight of them. One such place: Glacier National Park. Encompassing more than one million acres, the beauty of the park is best described as stunning, dramatic and breathtaking with diverse terrain that varies from rolling foothills to a celestial summit and wildflower-filled meadows to stunning 400-foot waterfalls. Its lush repertoire also includes emerald valleys, glaciers, striking rock faces and dramatic mountain peaks. And while Glacier has one of the largest intact ecosystems in the temperate zone, it’s easy to explore by road, trail or boat. The Going-to-the-Sun Road—an engineering marvel and National Historic Landmark—takes visitors through the heart of the park and crests Logan Pass at 6,646 feet and is one of the most scenic drives you’ll ever take.

10

If you prefer to explore on foot, set out on the park’s 734 miles of maintained trails or take a guided hiking trip with Glacier Guides. For a different way to see the park, step aboard a scenic boat tour with Glacier Park Boat Company, take a trail ride with Swan Mountain Outfitters, ride shotgun on a red bus tour or spend the day learning about the park from the perspective of the Blackfeet Tribe with Sun Tours. Glacier Jet Center and Glacier Heli Tours both offer guided helicopter tours for a striking aerial view of waterfalls, snowfields and backcountry waterfalls.


A red bus tour is a relaxing way to see the park. © Glacier Country Tourism

For overnight stays in Glacier National Park, lay your head at one of the park’s historic lodges, motor inns, 13 campgrounds or two backcountry chalets. During the cold months, winter camping is available at Apgar and St. Mary. To explore a lesser-known area of the park, make your way to Many Glacier. Located in the park’s northeast corner, Many Glacier is best described as a hiker’s paradise with trails setting out in many directions to remarkable places like Iceberg Lake, Grinnell Glacier Viewpoint and Granite Park Chalet. It’s also known for Many Glacier Hotel—a Swiss-style lodge that sits on the shore of Swiftcurrent Lake, as well as its active wildlife, massive mountains and gorgeous sunrises. And while summer is the busiest season, Glacier National Park is open year-round. Spring offers hikers and bikers early season access to the Going-to-the-Sun Road before it opens in its entirety to vehicular traffic, while fall is a quiet and colorful season to visit the park. During winter, the park is ideal for snowshoeing, ice climbing, cross-country skiing and backcountry skiing, with guided tours available. For more information on planning your trip to Glacier National Park, visit www.glaciermt.com/glacier-park.php or call us at 800.338.5072.

Meet Our Locals. You’re here to visit Glacier National Park. And we couldn’t be happier. Because we like to mind our manners, it’s our hosting duty to introduce you to the park’s native inhabitants. The park supports more than 70 species of mammals, each making their home in diverse parts of Glacier’s more than one million acres. Grizzly bears and their cubs gather on sparsely timbered hillsides and tend to favor wild huckleberry patches. Wolverines, gray wolves and lynx roam hundreds of thousands of acres throughout quiet, secluded meadows and valleys. Closer to trails and roads—and often visible to visitors—mountain goats and bighorn sheep frolic on the mountainsides and rock outcroppings. And to round it off, more than 260 avian species spend time in this birder’s haven, including harlequin ducks congregating creekside, osprey diving for fish or golden eagles perched in the treetops. One thing to keep in mind: while wildlife are used to the general presence of people, they do appreciate their space. Please keep a safe distance from all park wildlife and do not feed them. Glacier National Park has gateway communities that offer a range of lodging accommodations, restaurants, local watering holes, gift shops, recreational services, outfitters and gift shops. When visiting Glacier National Park, be sure to stop and explore Browning, Columbia Falls, East Glacier Park, Polebridge, St. Mary, West Glacier and Whitefish. Top left: Located in the North Fork, Polebridge—and its famous mercantile—is a favorite stop for hikers, rafters and travelers exploring this corner of Glacier Country. © DONNIE SEXTON Bottom left: A grizzly bear in Glacier National Park. © tonybynum.com

montana’s natural beauty beckons. As you travel through Western Montana’s Glacier Country, the views you encounter are sure to knock your socks off, tickle your fancy and exceed your expectations. Our spectacular landscape, cool atmosphere and high latitude combine to make for dramatic light any time of day—perfect for capturing your own Montana memory.

14

From the jagged rock walls of Badrock Canyon in the north to the expansive Bitterroot Valley in the south, postcard views are found around every bend in Western Montana’s Glacier Country. It’s here, situated off our highways and backroads where the real treasure—the landscape—takes center stage. It may be the sunrise casting light on Two Medicine in Glacier National Park or an evening drive along Highway 35 as it curves along the shoreline of Flathead Lake. Perhaps it’s the calm of an early morning float on the Blackfoot River or the changing fall foliage in Missoula. Or maybe, it’s the lack of big city lights that let the stars shine after the sun goes down.


Autumn brings gorgeous colors to the Mission Mountains. © donnie sexton

We’ve Got Mountains. Go Ahead, Look Directly At Them. We’re the first to admit it. Our mountains are pretty spectacular. Even downright dazzling. But we’ve got a secret: there’s more to us than just our looks. We have idyllic lakes, fresh mountain creeks, untracked lines, blue-ribbon trout streams, majestic wildlife and charming communities, each with their own style, character, personality and charm. When traveling in Glacier Country, chances are you’ll experience something that we like to call a Montana moment. It may be a once in a lifetime event of seeing a grizzly bear foraging for berries on a mountainside or taking in the incredible colors and traditions of an American Indian Pow Wow. Perhaps it’s watching a kayaker navigate the waters of Brennan’s Wave or biting into a mouth-watering bison burger served with a side of fresh mountain air. Whatever your moment may be, share it on instagram or twitter using #MontanaMoment and #GlacierMT.

Carving A Path Through The Landscape.

Western Montana offers no shortage of ways to cool off in the clear waters of the Rocky Mountains. Cast a line on Rock Creek to net a trophy trout. Take a soak in Seeley Lake to cool off after a full day of exploring. Float the Flathead River on a wild and scenic course or run the Alberton Gorge at noon with an expert river guide. Want more? You’re in luck. There are additional options just around the bend.

22

Summers on Montana’s rivers and lakes are one for the record books. For a cozy swimming beach, head to Tally Lake. Or if you’re looking for a friendly float where you’re guaranteed to rub elbows with the locals, grab a tube and put in on the Clark Fork River just east of Missoula and drift into town. And if you’re in the mood for a leisurely trip, book a sailing excursion or boat tour on Flathead Lake.

Fishing in Montana. The Stories are (Mostly) True. Casting a line in Western Montana is one of the activities that many people put on their bucket list. And for good reason. Our fishing is so legendary that it has been the subject of movies, songs, dreams, stories and more than likely—a tall tale or two. Glacier Country’s rivers, lakes and streams vary in size and are full of an array of fighters and trophy fish, including rainbow, cutthroat, brown and bull trout. With postcard perfection backdrops that include the brilliant teal color of the Middle Fork of the Flathead River, the wide expanses of the Clark Fork and the forested banks of Swan Lake, fishing in Glacier Country is as peaceful and thrilling as you’ve imagined. Probably even more.

23

Rivers And Streams. All Classes For All Abilities. With calm paths, deep runs, gentle riffles and a healthy dose of raging rapids, Glacier Country has the full spectrum of river conditions. And while they are vastly different, they each share a few fine features: cool and clear water, pretty views and easy access. Kayakers appreciate the big rapids on Alberton Gorge. Canoeing families enjoy the calm water and gently winding path of Seeley’s Clearwater Canoe Trail. Groups looking for diversity will find just that on the Class I, II and III waters of the Flathead River. And whether you’re on the Bitterroot, Blackfoot, Clark Fork, Flathead, Kootenai, Swan or Yaak rivers, plenty of uncrowded stretches can be found for an afternoon of floating.

Explore It Virtually. The Glacier Country website has everything you need to plan your vacation, including road trip ideas, maps, listings of hundreds of services, travel deals and more. Visit www.glaciermt.com to begin planning your trip.

Motorcycling: Ride Your Way Through Western Montana.

In a location filled with backroads galore, uncrowded routes and more scenic beauty that you can imagine, it’s no wonder that Western Montana is prime motorcycle riding country. Our routes— ranging from interstate cruises to quiet rides through forested timbers—give riders the opportunity to connect with the spirit of Montana while breathing in the fresh mountain air and discovering our bevy of small towns. Riders looking for an easy ride are welladvised to take I-90. Even though you’re riding the freeway, the route is ideal with four lanes, ample shoulders, plenty of pullouts, gorgeous views and abundant chances to explore communities along the way. If you’re looking for a relaxing day ride, take Highway 93 from Missoula south to Sula. For an advanced route, cruise along the forested road of Highway 83 as it winds its way through the Seeley-Swan Valley. And for one of the most stunning rides you’ll ever take, ride the Going-tothe-Sun Road in Glacier National Park. Other not-to-be-missed rides include Kootenai Country—especially the Lake Koocanusa Scenic Byway—in northwest Montana and Highway 200 through Paradise, Plains and Trout Creek.

Western Montana’s rivers and lakes provide plentiful options for fishing adventures. © Ryan Thompson

Fishing:

Always Time Well Spent. We’re not one to toot our own horn, but when there is something as incredible as our fishing, we simply have to tell you about it. In your previous travels, you may have heard about one of our state’s most famous rivers—the Blackfoot (compliments of A River Runs Through It). But we’ve got more than that: meet the Bitterroot River. Supporting a native westslope trout population with a healthy balance of sizeable cutthroat and rainbows, outstanding fishing can be found in these winding waters. Mix the thrill of casting your line with the area’s painting-like views of wide, steep canyons and snow-capped peaks— reaching as high as 10,000 feet—and you have your own piece of fishing heaven.

28

Travel a few hours north of the Bitterroot River and you’ll come to the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. Known

for its stunning brilliant teal color and running parallel to Glacier National Park, the Middle Fork offers incredible fly-fishing opportunities for its population of westslope cutthroat trout, whitefish and lake and rainbow trout. Other waterways prime for your fishing adventures include Rock Creek, the Clark Fork River, the Thompson River, Lake Koocanusa, Noxon Rapids Reservoir, Duck Lake, Echo Lake and Flathead Lake. Our advice? Be sure to bring your gear. You never know when you may stumble on a prime fishing spot or discover a deep mountain lake on your morning hike. And if you don’t have gear? Not a worry. All of our guide services can outfit you with anything you need. For more on fishing in Glacier Country, visit www.glaciermt.com/fishing/php.

Beer, Wine and Spirits: Tasting Montana.

It’s no secret. Montana is beer country. The microbrew industry in Montana has taken off over the last few years, with locally owned breweries taking root in various communities throughout the region. For a refreshing, berry-infused beer, try the Wild Huckleberry Wheat at Great Northern Brewing Company in Whitefish. Unwind after a long day of exploring on the roof-top patio at the region’s newest brewery—Kalispell Brewing Company. Or try the Cold Smoke Scotch Ale from Kettlehouse Brewing Company in Missoula. No matter your flavor, you can expect the taste to be as intriguing as the Montana scenery. Western Montana is also home to local wineries and distilleries, each creating and capturing the flavors that make this area so special. Many of our winemakers import grapes from nearby states, combining those with locally grown fruit like Flathead cherries, wild huckleberries and local honey. For tasty small batch wines, visit Flathead Lake Winery in Columbia Falls and sample their huckleberry, cherry and apple wines or relax with a glass of Mission Mountain Winery’s Huckleberry Mountain Wine on the west shore of Flathead Lake in Dayton. And for folks looking for a little more kick in their beverage of choice, Montana distilleries are busy brewing up batches of rum, whiskey, gin and moonshine, each handcrafted from local grains. Go behind the scenes with a tour and tasting at Glacier Distilling Company’s Whiskey Barn in Coram. For more information on our made in Montana brews, wines and spirits, visit www.glaciermt.com/breweries.php or www.glaciermt.com/wineries.php.

Variety:

Eight Experiences You Won’t Find Anywhere Else. 1. North American Indian Days. An annual event and one of the largest gatherings of United States and Canadian tribes, this celebration includes drumming and dancing, a Pow Wow, parade, traditional games, PRCA Rodeo and more. 2. Get down with guitar legends at the Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival and Workshop in Bigfork. The festival includes nightly performances from some of the world’s best guitarists and is held in the heart of the Flathead Valley. 3. Paddle the quiet calm of the Clearwater Canoe Trail as it winds through a dense willow marsh on the Clearwater River before flowing into Seeley Lake. Keep your eyes open for warblers, great blue herons, belted kingfishers and western painted turtles sunning themselves on logs.

30

4. Ride the Hiawatha. Bike through 10 tunnels and over seven steel trestles down the Hiawatha Rail Trail. This easy, 15-mile downhill is part of the 46-mile trail that traverses the Bitterroot Mountains between Montana and Idaho.

5. Meet Montana heroes at the Smokejumper Visitor Center, located at the nation’s largest smokejumper base in Missoula. Take a guided tour, where you’ll see a reconstructed lookout tower, learn about smokejumper’s training and see the parachute loft. 6. Soak up winter revelry at the Black Star Beer Barter at Whitefish Winter Carnival. Each year, participants try their hand at trading goods or talent for a year’s supply of Black Star Beer. 7. Marvel at the handcrafted artwork of Brother Joseph Carignano at the St. Ignatius Mission—where 58 hand-painted murals adorn the walls and ceiling—and St. Francis Xavier Parish in Missoula. 8. Ride a red bus through Glacier National Park and leave the driving to the jammers. Not only are they pros at navigating the roads in and around Glacier National Park, but they also serve as your tour guide, providing interesting facts and commentary. Plus, with them at the wheel, you’ll have more time to enjoy the views.


Scenic Byways: Take a Drive.

With diverse terrain ranging from jagged mountain peaks to lush valleys, it’s no wonder Western Located in the Seeley Valley, Highway 83 will take you past Salmon Lake—one of the most picturesque lakes on the Clearwater River. © Glacier Country Tourism Montana is home to numerous scenic drives and byways. During the summer, take a drive along Chief Mountain International Highway and cross into Canada before visiting Waterton Lakes National Park. For a leisurely drive through one of the region’s loveliest valleys, travel Highway 83 through the Seeley-Swan. As you pass the valley’s plentiful lakes and trailheads, be sure to keep your eyes open for deer and elk that call this area home. And for a winding backcountry route, travel the Skalkaho Highway in the Bitterroot Valley. This primitive seasonal route connects the communities of Hamilton and Philipsburg, taking travelers through the Sapphire Mountains and past Skalkaho Falls.

Meet Flathead Lake, the Largest Natural Freshwater Lake in the West. Sitting at 30 miles long and paralleled by the stunning Mission Mountains, Flathead Lake is pristinely gorgeous. But its beauty isn’t the only thing the lake has going for it. The lake covers nearly 200 square miles and has won awards for clarity and purity. It’s also a popular recreation destination, with abundant opportunities for sailing, boating, kayaking, paddleboarding and fishing, as well as hiking at Wild Horse Island—the largest island on Flathead Lake. Today the island is home to a day-use state park and offers bird watching, photography and wildlife viewing. For a relaxing and insightful tour, take a trip with Far West Boat Tours in Lakeside or set sail with Questa Sailing Charters at Flathead Lake Lodge in Bigfork. And if you’re looking to land a trophy lake trout, take a trip with Bagley Guide Service in Bigfork. The southern end of Flathead Lake is located on the Flathead Indian Reservation: be sure to pick up a recreation permit from the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes. Flanking the lake are its shoreline neighbors—Big Arm, Bigfork, Dayton, Elmo, Lakeside, Polson, Rollins, Somers and Woods Bay—any of which are a great place to put in for a day on the lake and return for dinner and stargazing.

Our Story Was Centuries In The Making.

Some say our history dates back to Lewis and Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voyage through Montana, while others say that going back 200 years is just dusting the surface. Regardless of your view, Montanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cultural heritage is a rich, colorful tapestry sewn from art, music, dance, storytelling, industry and leisure. And best of all, each piece can be found here in Glacier Country.

Native Culture: a rich Past, Present and Future. Quiet abounds across the prairies and meadows, while a soft breeze carries the gentle beating of a drum. Slowly the sound intensifies and is soon joined by singing. As we approach, we are graced by dancers adorned in bright, colorful attire performing a traditional dance.

34

These are the sights and sounds of an American Indian Pow Wow, a time-honored event that takes place throughout Glacier Country. And while the site itself is stunning, what is most remarkable is that the story told by the Pow Wow dates back generations and emanates the spirit of American Indian history.

Prior to becoming a state, several tribes called Big Sky Country home. Today, Montana has seven Indian reservations and 12 tribes: Assiniboine, Blackfeet, Chippewa, Cree, Crow, Gros Ventres, Kootenai, Little Shell, Northern Cheyenne, Pend d’Oreille, Salish and Sioux. Each of these tribal nations observes its own distinct story, voice, heritage and traditions. For more information on Montana’s First Nations, visit www.visitmt.com/places_to_go/indian_nations. On the Flathead and Blackfeet Indian reservations, both located within Glacier Country, Indian culture is shared and experienced against the backdrop of sacred landscapes, often through Pow Wows or similar gatherings. Several tribes, including the Blackfeet and Confederated Salish and Kootenai, speak their native language and honor their own traditions, working to preserve and share ancestral stories. During the summer months, visitors to Glacier National Park can learn about the history and culture of the Blackfeet, Salish, Kootenai and Pend d’Oreille tribes by attending one of the presentations of the Native America Speaks program.

Storytelling is a large part of the American Indian culture and plays an important role for Montana’s native populations. Through storytelling, visitors to Montana can learn about the history, traditions and culture of the tribes. Both of Western Montana’s Indian Reservations—the Flathead and Blackfeet—have ample opportunities to learn from the tribes. To learn more about the Blackfeet Tribe and its heritage within Glacier National Park, we recommend taking a cultural tour with Sun Tours. In Browning, be sure to take the time to peruse the artifacts and artwork at the Museum of the Plains Indian, Lodgepole Gallery and Tipi Village and Blackfeet Heritage Center and Art Gallery. On the Flathead Indian Reservation, take a guided tour of the museum at The People’s Center in Pablo and explore Ninepipes Museum of Early Montana in Charlo. Or take a step back into the past with a visit to St. Mary’s Mission in Stevensville and Travelers’ Rest State Park in Lolo.

Play Paparazzi With Our First Celebrity: Bob Marshall. For many Montanans, we think of the Bob Marshall Wilderness as one of our famous locals. Known fondly as “The Bob,” this vast area is made up of rugged peaks, placid lakes, sparkling Rocky Mountain streams and wide valleys coming together to create one of the most completely preserved mountain ecosystems in the world. Designated as wilderness in 1964, its elevations range from 4,000 to more than 9,000 feet, its trails number in the thousands and its wildlife include everything from lynx and wolf to mountain goat, grizzly bear and elk. The Chinese Wall—a huge, 22-mile-long escarpment with 1,000-foot vertical faces—typifies the area’s dramatic beauty. With more than one million acres and countless pathways and trails, the Bob Marshall Wilderness is ideal for adventure seekers, from hiking families to hardcore backcountry explorers. Many guides and outfitters take trips into the Bob Marshall Wilderness, including Bob Marshall Wilderness Outfitters in Ovando, Cheff Guest Ranch in Charlo, Diamond R Guest Ranch in West Glacier, Rich Ranch in Seeley Lake, Swan Mountain Outfitters in Swan Lake and Dropstone Outfitting in Choteau.

Go See Him. From Kalispell, travel south on Highway 93 and turn left onto Highway 82. Next, turn right onto Highway 35, then left onto Highway 83. Follow 83 south through the Seeley-Swan Valley. From Glacier National Park, follow the Flathead River’s Middle Fork south. From Missoula, travel north on Highway 200 and turn left onto Highway 83 at Clearwater Junction. From Browning, travel south along the Rocky Mountain Front to Choteau before heading west into The Bob. No matter which path you choose, you’ll end up in Montana’s largest wilderness.

Warm Up with Montana’s Winter Adventures. 40

In Western Montana, we’re serious about two things: fun and winter. After all, any place that combines 300+ inches of snowfall with blue skies, pristine valleys, thousands of miles of groomed trails, snowcapped mountains, winter festivals and modern-day art in the form of frozen waterfalls has got to be serious. And because we don’t take our dedication to enjoying winter lightly, we combine all that with comfortable temperatures, charming towns and our fair share of sunny days, creating the perfect winter playground.

A Hearty Helping of Culture. Arts & Theatre Thrive in Glacier Country.

Tucked gently into our pristine Montana landscape are cultural treasures that aren’t necessarily expected in a state known more for its natural beauty than its entertainment. But we think it’s the natural beauty that provides inspiration for the artists, novelists, performers and musicians that create here. With a rich and diverse cultural heritage that includes native traditions, western lore and a splash of cosmopolitan flair, the arts truly take center stage in Western Montana in the form of galleries, museums, performing arts and notable events. In towns both big and small, you’ll find galleries that showcase work from local Montana artists. Combine that with summer playhouses, local theatre groups and museum exhibits and you have a cultural haven that’s ready to be explored. Our advice? Start in Missoula and stroll through its historic downtown for a well-rounded taste of culture. While in Montana’s cultural hub, be sure to stop by the Monte Dolack Gallery, peruse the Missoula Art Museum and catch a performance at the Missoula Children’s Theatre/MCT Community Theatre. Another hotbed of cultural activity is the expansive Flathead Valley—located a scenic drive north of Missoula. The Flathead Valley is home to historical highlights that include the Polson-Flathead Historical Museum, Conrad Mansion, Hockaday Museum of Art and The Museum at Central School. Rounding out its offerings are Bigfork’s Summer Playhouse, Kalispell’s Glacier Symphony & Chorale and Whitefish’s Alpine Theatre Project. Other not-to-be-missed highlights include Glacier County Historical Museum in Cut Bank, Montana House in Apgar, Museum of Mountain Flying in Missoula and The Sapphire Gallery in Philipsburg. And if you’re looking for made in Montana gifts, stop by Elk Camp Arts, Gallery & Showroom in Eureka or Libby’s Cabinet Mountain Furniture, Pottery & Gifts and Mountain Meadow Gifts & Espresso.

For stellar notable events, attend River City Roots Festival in Missoula, Festival Amadeus in Whitefish, Montana Dragon Boat Festival in Bigfork and Bitterroot Scottish Irish Festival in Hamilton.

MAKING MEMORIES IN MONTANA.

Sometimes you just need to get away. Maybe it’s a weekend jaunt to Missoula, the region’s largest city. Perhaps it’s a girlfriend getaway to Whitefish for on-mountain adventure followed by fine dining and lively nightlife. Or maybe it’s your annual three-generation family trip to Glacier National Park where you fill your tummy on various huckleberry delights. Whatever it is, we’re glad you’ve chosen Western Montana to create your lasting Montana moment.

48

Here in Glacier Country, there’s a special kind of bonding power that comes from combining the region’s natural beauty with fresh air and outdoor recreation. For family adventure, take a whitewater rafting trip on the Alberton Gorge, hike along a ridgeline in the Bitterroot Mountains or take a guided snowmobiling trip in the Swan Mountains. Or if you prefer a more leisurely family outing, swim in Holland Lake, pick huckleberries on Blue Mountain or explore Garnet Ghost Town—one of the most well-preserved ghost towns in the state.


With diverse accommodations and plentiful activity options, Western Montana is ideal for a family getaway. © Glacier Country Tourism

After a day (or two) of family fun, reenergize by bunking at one of our lodging properties. Western Montana is home to a variety of accommodations, ranging from the rustic to the luxe. For luxury travel, try one of our upscale guest ranches like The Ranch at Rock Creek, The Resort at Paws Up and Triple Creek Ranch. If you’re looking to bunk in Montana’s great outdoors, consider pitching your tent at one of our state parks, designated campgrounds or fire lookouts—nestled high in Montana’s mountains. For a cozy country getaway, consider Double Arrow Lodge in Seeley Lake or Bison Creek Ranch in East Glacier Park. And for a comfortable and tasty stay, make reservations at one of our numerous bed and breakfasts, including Bitterroot River Bed and Breakfast in Stevensville, Swan Hill Bed and Breakfast in Polson and Good Medicine Lodge in Whitefish. For a complete list of lodging options, visit www.glaciermt.com/stay.php.

Welcome to polson

“the smAll toWn on the Big lAke.”

Located halfway between Missoula and Kalispell on the Flathead Indian Reservation is the quaint community of Polson. Situated on the southern end of Flathead Lake—the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi—Polson has breathtaking views of the Mission Mountains and easy access to the expansive lake. The town is also home to boating, hiking, river rafting, fishing and kayaking, making it an ideal place to enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors. With a charming downtown filled with small businesses, shops and restaurants, visitors are greeted with both a warm welcome and merchandise with a distinct Montana flair. Polson celebrates summer with numerous fun-filled annual events like the Fourth of July celebration, Polson Main Street Cherry Festival (filled with the sweetest cherries you’ve ever tasted and held the third weekend in July), a 3-on-3 basketball tournament, Sandpiper Art Show and Cruisin’ by the Bay Classic Car Show. Additional highlights include rodeos, concerts, Port Polson Playhouse, Miracle of America Museum, Polson Flathead Historical Museum and Kerr Dam—a 204’ tall dam with beautiful views.

The area around Big Arm is home to numerous types of wildlife and provides incredible views of the lake. Plus it’s located near Wild Horse Island—a present-day state park that is home to bears, bighorn sheep and deer. Years ago, the Salish-Kootenai Indians would pasture their horses on the island to avoid having them stolen by other tribes. www.glaciermt.com/big-arm

bigfork Hugging the sparkling blue bay where the Swan River flows into Flathead Lake, this picturesque community charms with its world-class art galleries, fine dining and live theater. Named “One of the 100 Best Small Art Towns” in the nation, Bigfork is home to 50 shops, 25 restaurants and 16 galleries, as well as the Bigfork Summer Playhouse.

Western Montana is home to diverse terrain for biking, from easy paved trails to adrenaline pumping terrain. © Glacier Country Tourism

Bike it Out:

Glacier Country’s Trails Prime for Riding. With many towns in Western Montana surrounded by forests, our region is a haven for bikers searching for accessible trails and terrain. Missoula Valley: An ideal launching point in the southern tier of Glacier Country, Missoula has biking trails that fan out in all directions. Located two miles southwest of Missoula is Blue Mountain Recreation Area. A diversified use area, Blue Mountain has ATV, motorcycle, horse and mountain biking trails that vary from steep freeriding to open meadows with a beautiful view of the Garden City. Other popular biking destinations include Pattee Canyon Recreation Area, Montana Snowbowl and the Clark Fork Riverfront—a trail in the heart of Missoula that runs parallel to the Clark Fork River. Hiawatha Trail: Just off I-90 in Western Montana is one of the most breathtaking scenic stretches for biking—the Hiawatha Rail Trail. The trail takes bikers along a 15-mile old railroad route, passing through 10 tunnels and across seven high steel trestles.

on ride Getting in an early seas Road. on the Going-to-the-Sun NP #GTSR #GlacierMT #G

Glacier National Park: The Going-to-the-Sun Road is one of the most stunning routes for biking in Glacier Country. During the busy season of summer, there are time restrictions as to when cyclists can be on the road. Spring—prior to the road opening for vehicular traffic—is one of the best times of year to bike the road. The early season provides crisp mountain air and breathtaking views of snow-capped peaks and rushing waters. Flathead Valley: Located in Glacier Country’s northern tier, the Flathead Valley offers abundant options for biking. Whitefish Mountain Resort has more than 20 miles of liftaccessed and cross country mountain bike trails, with gorgeous views of both Glacier National Park and the expansive valley. Other northern tier riding options include The Whitefish Trail in Whitefish, Rails to Trails in Kalispell, Fisher Divide Trail near Libby or Foy’s to Blacktail south of Kalispell.

When you think of Western Montana, dining isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But we’re happy to tell you that we have incredible restaurants throughout the region. Treat yourself to homemade pies, soups and burgers at Minnie’s Montana Café in Thompson Falls. Try Montana-style dishes at Montana Club in Kalispell. Or for the tastiest Mexican food in the West, fill your tummy at Serrano’s in East Glacier Park. For a taste of the South, try Tupelo Grill in Whitefish. And for the best desserts in Missoula, head to Mustard Seed Asian Café. For more dining options, visit www.glaciermt.com/dining.php.

Music:

Kick Up Your Heels. When it comes to our local musicians, we’re like proud parents. Western Montana is home to talented musicians that fill our mountains, valleys and towns with harmonious music. And while we’re not sure if it’s the crisp mountain air that makes their melodies so sweet or if they gather inspiration from the region’s stunning terrain, we know one thing for sure: our musicians know how to rock it. With a bevy of music venues that include Symes Hot Springs Hotel in Hot Springs, Great Northern Bar in Whitefish, The Lumberjack Saloon west of Lolo, Blue Moon in Columbia The Lil’ Smokies are well-known for their acoustic bluegrass music. © Tommy Martino Falls, Stonefly Lounge in Coram or Missoula’s Union Club, Wilma Theatre and Top Hat, you’re sure to find something to please your musical palette. When you’re in our neck of the woods and local Montana musicians are playing, you’re well-advised to catch them in action. (Trust us, your eardrums will thank you). Some of our favorite local Montana bands include Tom Catmull’s Radio Static, County Line, Copper Mountain Band, Shodown, Reverend Slanky, VTO, Secret Powers, The Lil’ Smokies, John Floridis, Zeppo, The Clintons, Jack Gladstone, Singing Sons of Beaches, David Walburn, Cold Hard Cash and Moonshine Mountain.
