The best way to make the most out of any trip is to be well-informed about the area to which one is traveling. That way, visitors have an idea of what they want to see and can plan accordingly to fit in everything while they are there. Of course, some flexibility is always good as well, because trips don’t always go as they are planned. One of the best methods of obtaining updated information about what to see and do in Whitefish during a stay there is to make the first stop in the town at the Whitefish Chamber of Commerce Tourism Office.

That stop is easy to make because this visitor’s center office is located conveniently in downtown Whitefish. The actual address of the visitor’s center is 520 East Second Street; visitors can obtain driving directions from such commonly used mapping sites as Mapquest ( www.mapquest.com) or Google Maps ( www.maps.google.com). Visitors can stop in during business hours which run on weekdays from nine in the morning until five in the evening. The office may be closed on standard holidays. Travelers can get updated information about hours as well as get basic questions answered by contacting the office via local phone at (406) 862-3501 or toll free phone at (877) 862-3548. Travelers can also get additional information from the official website of the Chamber of Commerce which is located online at www.whitefishchamber.com.
