Flathead Lake Area
The pristine Flathead Lake rests 30 miles southwest of Glacier National Park. Flanked by two scenic highways that wind along its curving shoreline are U.S. Route 93 and U.S. Route 35. The lake is nested between the white-capped Mission Mountains on its eastern shore and by Salish Mountains on its western shore.
Dotting the Flathead Valley are world-class attractions, such as two excellent ski resorts (with over a dozen more located less than a day’s drive away), nine championship golf courses, superb four and five-star restaurants, convenient air and rail connections, a wide variety of entertainment opportunities, and shopping to suit any taste.
Summer attractions are almost too numerous to name – especially at or near Flathead Lake. Boaters and sailors, manning all types of watercraft, take full advantage of the hundreds of square miles of Flathead Lake’s crystal clear waters. Dozens of other substantial streams, ponds, lakes and rivers provide fun, beautiful and clean sources of water fed by melting winter snows and underground streams.
Golfers enjoy what Golf Digest has called, “one of the top 50 golfing destinations in the world.” There are nine beautiful and challenging golf courses that are open from late March to late October. What more needs to be said about the opportunities for golf, other than to ask what time you tee off?
