Polson, Montana is a town that is bursting with activity in both summer and winter. The city sits on the southern edge of Flathead Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake west of Mississippi. This stunning lake is a playground with endless recreational opportunities and gorgeous scenery. Take a boat cruise of the lake to see spectacular homes and rustic cabins that charm the shores and to view the majestic Mission Mountains.
Those looking to get out on the water without their own boat can rent a kayak, canoe, or sailboat at one of the many marinas around the lake. You can also hop aboard the Princess Tour to see the southern tip of the lake on an hour and a half cruise that launches three times a day. Wildhorse Island, a beautiful state park on the lake is an excellent place to walk and spot some of the wildlife that calls the area home. This is a great hiking destination, just keep an eye out for the three wild horses that call the island their own. Skiing in the area is a top attraction as well. There are three big mountain options nearby including Flathead Valley, Whitefish Mountain, and Blacktail Mountain. Snowshoeing is another option that is fun and free, just grab a pair of shoes and head out on the trails!
