Kalispell Montana is a beautiful wonderful place! The views are extraordinary, full of mountains rivers lakes and valleys. The people here are friendly and willing to help Neighbors and those sometimes they don't even know. There are many things to do here from snow skiing and snowboarding in the winter time comma to water skiing and wakeboarding in the summer. There's fishing hiking camping and just about any other outdoor sport you could think of. It is one of the most beautiful places in America and not only that but it is also like taking a step back in time. Although Kalispell has grown in the past few years we are still not up to date as some people would say in areas of technology and infrastructure. But it is a wonderful place to live and a beautiful place to explore.
Review Kalispell
Wonderful area, nice people who are extremely friendly, lots of activities to do, great shopping. Flathead Valley Community College is a great college to attend for either Business, Early Childhood Education, Accounting, and a whole lot of other wonderful degrees and classes. There are quite a few selections of banks, and the library there is absolutely wonderful.
Also they have excellent, very reliable, and extremely accessible bus transportation. The bus is called Eagle Transit and has many areas to stop.
My name is James Schendel and I came to kalispell Montana to obtain my associates degree in the culinary arts at fvcc. Being a graduate now, I look back at the choice I made to come here with no regrets. Kalispell has to be one of the most beautiful places in Montana, especially in the summer time. If your a soon to be college student and want all of the experience but at half the tuition FVCC could be what your looking for!
