As a mountain community we can have periods of wet weather (which are welcomed in the hot, dry Summer months!). For guests to the Glacier National Park area, this can mean a change of plans is necessary until the weather improves. The Flathead Valley offers a diverse range of activities for a change of pace during wet weather. To ensure the rain doesn’t dampen your spirits, here’s some suggestions to keep you busy:
Explore our museums and art galleries. The Conrad Mansion once belonged to a wealthy family responsible for building much of Kalispell and the surrounding areas. The Mansion has been preserved to show life as it was for the family many years ago and gives an interesting glimpse into another world, now long gone.
The Hockaday Museum of Art, also located in Kalispell, has permanent exhibits, workshops and events related to local life.
Visit the Stumptown Historical Society in Whitefish and learn all about the influence of the railroad on the local community.
Founded in 1981, the Miracle of America Museum in Polson offers a selection of unique memorabilia and a fun day out.
For something just a little bit different, check out the Montana Vortex and House of Mystery!
If that’s all too much culture for you there are bowling alleys, indoor play centres, antique shops and a movie theatre in nearby Kalispell.
Guests of the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins are welcome to use the outdoor pavilion to continue to enjoy the great outdoors whatever the weather, or come on inside and enjoy an espresso in the lodge while you plan your next Glacier National Park or Flathead Valley adventure using our selection of maps and local guidebooks.
Book today – whatever the weather, we’re sure you’ll find yourselves in great company!
