Make the most of a family vacation in Whitefish all year long
Children of all ages will find plenty of fun activities in Whitefish all year long.
In the winter, when little legs need a break from the ski hill, try a sleigh ride at the Bar W or ice skating at the Stumptown Ice Den.
Other seasons are prime times to rent a canoe or kayak from Paddlefish Sports or Sportsman Ski Haus and take a paddle on the river. Afterwards, have a play date at City Beach, rent bikes for a casual pedal along the bike paths, or whoosh down the Alpine Slide at Whitefish Mountain Resort for some thrilling fun. Round out activities with a visit to the Dave Olseth Memorial Skate Park or explore the nearby forests on horseback or take a kid-friendly hike on the Whitefish Trail.
Any time of year, the pool at the WAVE Aquatic and Fitness center is a big hit (and even offers drop-in daycare if mom and dad need a break), or go to the Stumptown Art Studio downtown to create a memorable piece of art to take home. The Whitefish Community Library regularly offers reading times. And the end to every kid’s perfect day finishes with homemade ice cream or hot cocoa.
