Principle 4 - Foster Product Diversity

Encourage a full range of cuisine, lodging, activities and services, so as to appeal to the entire demographic spectrum of the geotourism market.

A truly unique element of the Crown of the Continent region is the incredible breadth of offerings available to our guests and residents. You can explore the trails on foot or horseback; navigate the lakes and rivers on old fashioned wooden boats, inflatable rafts or stand up paddle boards; wind through the mountains on the Jammer buses or soar overhead in a helicopter. You can satisfy your hunger with a huckleberry shake from a food stand, a hearty elk burger from a family run restaurant or a five course farm to table/micro-distillery pairing dinner. You can pitch a tent in the Bob Marshall, make yourself at home in a unique vacation rental, relax in the well known comforts of a familiar chain like Holiday Inn Express or spoil yourself at a four diamond property like Whitefish Lake Lodge.

This wide variety of options not only allows guests to perfectly tailor their Crown of the Continent experience to their particular needs and desires, but it also offers a myriad of employment opportunities to both seasonal and year round employees. We have several brochures and rack cards in our informational library and are happy to answer any questions about the many great food, lodging, retail and activity providers in the area.
