Whether you’re looking for a great place to raise a family, run a business, enjoy your retirement or simply take a well-deserved vacation, look no further … Whitefish, Montana has something for everyone!

Founded at the turn of the 20th Century when the Great Northern Railway chose to put its northwestern Montana headquarters here, modern-day Whitefish is an island of commerce and culture, surrounded by an ocean of mountain recreation.

Nestled at the northernmost tip of the majestic Flathead Valley, Whitefish offers residents a peaceful-yet-active lifestyle that is the envy of communities near and far. All you have to do is pick your pleasure -- from hiking & biking to boating & cycling, from skiing & skating to floating & fishing... you’ll find all that (and more) in Whitefish!

Enjoy a world-class meal as you watch the summer sun set over Whitefish Lake. Take a leisurely stroll (or a vigorous run) on the miles of scenic trails that crisscross the region. Escape to bag some “first tracks” at the ski area before you head to the office on Monday morning. Head downtown to shop the galleries and boutiques, then catch a performance by the Whitefish Theatre Company at the O’Shaughnessy Center. Enjoy everything that our community has to offer, and we guarantee … you’ll be hooked on Whitefish!

A dynamic economy and unsurpassed quality of life are just two of the things that make Whitefish the perfect place to live, work and do business. The Whitefish Chamber, in coordination with the city, county and a host of state and federal agencies, offers prospective business owners personalized service as they prepare to set-up shop, as well as ongoing support to companies that are already up-and-running. And a qualified, well-educated workforce stands ready to supply the manpower you need.

Our schools -- from elementary on up to Flathead Valley Community College -- are among the best in the state of Montana, offering students at every level a modern, comprehensive, high-quality educational experience.

When it comes to arts and culture, Whitefish has it covered! Top stars shine at both the O’Shaughnessy Center and the Whitefish Performing Arts Center year-round, where Broadway actors, the Glacier Symphony, legendary rock n’ rollers and international dance troupes share the stage with the Bulldog Band, the high school drama club and the kids from North Valley Music School.

Convenient, state-of-the-art healthcare is another of the Whitefish community’s strong suits. Logan Health -- Whitefish is one of the state’s most innovative and respected medical facilities, and dozens of specialized clinics and providers assure local residents and visitors easy access to the very best care for whatever may ail them.

But without question, our greatest natural resource is the people who live here. You’ll find them friendly, open and welcoming, and eager to share our special corner of the universe with others. All things considered, it’s easy to see why folks have been flocking to Whitefish for more than 100 years ... and we hope you’ll join us!
