Whitefish, Montana

Much To Do That I Did Not Do

Which comes first - the tourist or the town's charm?
I had imagined I would stay in Kalispell for a few days R and R. But there was nothing about its streets that made me want to stay. Whitefish was a few miles North. I chose it. Now, when I read the online information about Kalispell, I probably would have enjoyed it!

If you come to Whitefish, Montana, you will probably want to amble through the little shops that feature nice clothing, home decoration and furnishings, outdoor sporting supplies, artwork, and gift items.
Probably you will go to Big Mountain where every type of both summer and winter activity await the active tourist.
You will also go to Flathead Lake.

I did none of these exciting activities.
I did the mundane like get the Ol' '95 an oil change and do my laundry.

I slept in a kingsize bed at the Pine Lodge for three nights.
I organized my photos and caught up on my blog before I forgot everything I had done in the last week.
I ate BBQ at a friendly joint with Pig in the name. I also had a nice meal at Casey's.

Of course, I rode my bike around to see a bit of the town and learn the history. (You can probably skip the museum.)

In a few hours, I will turn the key in Ol' '95 and decide if I am going North or South.
