Often, it's the people who reside in a city that make it unique. In this part of Northwest Montana - Glacier National Park, there's 6,000 of them.
Helena, the state capital, sits 170 miles southeast of Whitefish, while Somers can be located 25 miles to the south.
The entire family will have an absolute blast at Amazing Fun Center and Woodland Water Park. If that isn't enough to tire the young ones out, why not make the trip to Glacier Lanes and Casino or Big Sky Waterpark as well?
Enjoy your wine? Then organise a visit to Flathead Lake Winery and Glacier Distilling Company, where you'll learn about the art of winemaking and try a few drops.
How does an alfresco lunch sound? Grab some snacks and stop at Sixmile Peak or Big Arm State Park for a laid-back picnic. You can also relax and watch life go by at Lone Pine State Park and Glacier National Park.
Remember to pop in to Alberta Tourist Information Center and Apgar Visitor Center. The helpful staff can provide you with advice, tips and inspiration to get the most out of your time here.
Perhaps you're searching for a haven to calm the constant hum of your mind. If so, the glistening waters of Bird Woman Falls could be exactly what you need.
Enjoy the gorgeous views and the gentle sounds of rippling water at Whitefish Lake State Park or Flathead Lake. To observe any waterbirds you may have missed, it's also worth heading to Hidden Lake and Kintla Lake.
Whitefish has a variety of nature reserves, such as Swan Lake Boat Launch and Glacier Adventure Guides. For a little bit more breathing space, make your way to Granite Park Trail and Flathead National Forest.
If the weather isn't the best, check for events and tours at the Hockaday Museum of Art or the Museum at Central School. Browse the exhibits and take five in the tranquil surrounds.
When it comes to gallery going, art-loving visitors are in luck. The Dick Idol Signature Gallery is just one of your options here. After you're finished there, continue on to the unique collections of the Riecke's Bayside Gallery and the Eric Thorsen Art Studio.
Conrad Mansion Museum and the House of Mystery and Montana Vortex should be on your radar if you're looking to experience some history-filled attractions. If you fancy yourself as history geek, the Frank Lloyd Wright Building is also worth wandering around.
If you're searching for a spirital way to discover the city, embark on a pilgrimage to First Baptist Church and First Presbyterian Church.
Mount Brown Lookout is one of those landmarks that will feature in your best-loved holiday snap.
This city is a paradise for shoppers. You can buy all that you'll need and plenty more at Kehoe's Agate Shop and Eva Gates Homemade Preserves. Bad Rock Books and Willow's HuckleberryLand also offer a range of opportunities to enjoy a little impulse buying.
Relax and watch a performance at the Bigfork Summer Playhouse or the Alpine Theatre Project. These venues present a range of entertainment options. The Whitefish Theatre Company and Lake Koocanusa Arena are also renowned. Remember to inspect the calendar of events.
While you are here, why not wander around some attractions that aren't on the typical tourist trail? You're not likely to have to fight for space with too many travellers at Great Northern Rafting. Glacier Anglers is also worth your time.
