The smoky tang of steam locomotives once filled the air. Now inhale the sweeter perfume of craft beer and gourmet coffee in this railroad frontier town transformed into a recreation hub with nightlife and an array of top restaurants. Pescado Blanco and Tupelo Grille serve locally grown foods with an ethnic twist.
With its covered sidewalk main street leading to the cultural arts center, historic depot museum and public library, this quaint, picturesque western town offers visitors a change from the fast-paced, hustle and bustle of urban life. Located in the breathtaking Northern Rocky Mountains adjacent to the peaks of Glacier National Park and Whitefish Mountain Resort, the town is surrounded by hundreds of lakes, including Whitefish Lake, and scenic rivers. The location of the valley keeps it safe from extreme climate changes encountered in other portions of Montana, making it ideal for year-round recreation. Town is filled with a variety of quality restaurants, shopping, night life, and a wide array of lodging. The people of Whitefish are genuinely friendly and down-to-earth. The town's tight-knit community and low-key atmosphere make it a great place to visit.
