This charming lakeside town on the southern tip of Flathead Lake is the historic and present-day trading center for some of Montana's most fertile lands. Celebrated every year, the Cherry Festival is an occasion for the town to gather and enjoy the special, juicy cherries that grow here. Summer is the most popular time to visit, when people can golf or swim, fish, and boat on the lake, but families pride their town on its tight-knit welcoming community year-round. Exploring the beauty surrounding Polson could take a lifetime. The massive Mission Mountains, a Rocky Mountain range, climb up to the west and were first explored by native peoples thousands of years ago. Most of the range falls under special protections, which means that despite their popularity, these lands have remained wild and enchanted, perfect for hiking or camping adventures. An hour's drive south is Missoula, Northwest Montana's biggest city, which draws people from all around the state and beyond. Home to the University of Montana, the city is young and forward thinking, a center of technology, music, and modern culture. To the north is Whitefish, the small mountain town just south Whitefish Mountain Resort, and Glacier National Park, which offers access some of Montana's most beautiful vistas.
