The convenient location in downtown Columbia Falls means you'll have everything you need nearby, such as grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, book store, liquor store, antique store and more are all within steps of your home. Continue reading below to find out why Columbia Falls is the perfect place to call home during your Flathead Valley and Glacier National Park adventures!
In the charming town of Columbia Falls, you’ll be centrally located to everything the Flathead Valley has to offer. Columbia Falls is known to locals as the Gateway to Glacier because it is the largest city nearest to Glacier Park, but with a population of only 4,688, people it has all the draws of a small town. With Glacier Park just 20-minutes away, you’ll easily be able to enjoy the park by day and have quick access to urban amenities and entertainment by night so that you can make the most of your Montana vacation.
Just around the corner from the condo, within easy walking distance you’ll find a Smith's Grocery, Glacier Lanes bowling alley, Badrock Bookstore, and the Uptown Hearth Bakery - which locals hail as the best bakery and coffee shop in the valley! Across the street from the bakery, you’ll find the Gunsight Bar and Grill which offers hand-crafted cocktails, indoor and outdoor dining, and live music on most nights of the week. Just a little further down the street, you’ll find the O'brien's -the local liquor store, an antique shop, public swimming pool, and Montana Coffee Traders, which is a must try spot for coffee, breakfast, and lunch! Within a mile or two of the condo, you’ll find the Big Sky Water Slides, the Backslope Brewery, and The Backroom – a long-standing Columbia Falls favorite, famous for ribs and Indian fry bread.
During the summer, on Thursday nights, you’ll find a lively Community Market in “The Coop” located behind O’Brien’s Liquor store. You’ll love being able to stop in at the market to buy fresh local produce. It doesn’t get much more “Montana” than a day spent exploring Glacier, finished with a farm-to-table meal! Unless of course, you made time in your day to reel in a fish or two for the grill – which shouldn’t be hard to do with the abundant fishing opportunities the region affords!
If you’re up for a night out, you’ll find country dancing at the historic Blue Moon Bar, located just three miles west of the condo. During the summer months, behind the bar, at the Blue Moon Arena, you can participate in true Montana culture by taking in a Brash Rodeo! Events include bull riding, bronc riding, steer riding, team roping, barrel racing, breakaway roping, calf roping, and chute dodging.
The next town over is the small resort town of Whitefish, which is just 10 miles from the condo and provides a wide range of additional dining and entertainment options, including world-class skiing at the Whitefish Mountain Resort, which is just 30 minutes from the condo.
South of Columbia Falls and Whitefish, is the town of Kalispell. Kalispell is the largest city in the valley and is home to the biggest shopping center – you’ll find stores such as REI, Sportsman’s Ski Haus, Cabela’s, Target, Wal-Mart, TJ Maxx, Ross, and an array of restaurants and services.
Just 16-minutes south of Kalispell is Flathead Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River. The east shore of the lake is home to the quaint town of Bigfork and abundant cherry orchards - don't forget to stop an buy some cherries from one of the roadside stands; you won't regret it! Along the way, you'll enjoy majestic views, multiple public swimming holes, and boat launches, as well as a handful of restaurants and bars. On the west shore of Flathead Lake, you’ll find the small lake towns Somers and Lakeside, and a few public boat launches and popular swimming holes. Polson is located at the south end of the lake and is on the Flathead Indian Reservation. Polson has several events throughout the summer, such as the annual Cherry Festival. Flathead lake provides ample opportunity for swimming, fishing, boating, and fun in the sun!
