MSN made a list of 24 Small Towns in the USA That Are Must-Visits in 2023. MSN chose from places with populations of less than 50,000, and considered factors like main street charm and proximity to outdoor fun. So what Montana town made the list? 

Whitefish in Northwest Montana was #24 on the list. Whitefish is somewhat of a tourist destination as it is. But can we blame the visitors? This town is fun year-round.

Whitefish isn't short on community fun: the town's Main Street closes down for a Christmas festival, and they host yearly Octoberfests and summer events. Plus, it borders Whitefish Lake, Whitefish Mountain Resort, and Glacier National Park

Whitefish also has incredible dining and is home to an independent baseball team. We haven't even covered all the hiking, skiing, and other outdoor activities near the town.

I have been to Whitefish many times and it's an incredible place. Some day, I would love to retire there. It's a beautiful town, and provides access to just about anything you might be interested in. If you have never been to Whitefish, put it on your radar for 2023.
