Kalispell-Glacier Park –– an “Ice” Place to Visit in Your Thrifty Rental Car

Some people go to a beach to relax. The rest go to Glacier Park. That’s because it’s home to 20 naturally formed glaciers. This remote location in northwest Montana draws visitors from all over the world looking to experience the great outdoors the way it was thousands of years ago. Hiking, sightseeing, kayaking, camping, animal watching — it’s all here. When you fly in to Kalispell-Glacier Park International Airport, you’ll definitely want to opt for that four-wheel-drive Thrifty rental car to get around town. Also, be sure the Glacier Park Airport rental car representative shows you how to quickly lock the doors. Glacier Park has a large population of grizzly bears, grey wolves, mountain lions, wolverines and Canadian lynx.

Glacier National Park

It doesn’t matter what brings you to Kalispell-Glacier Park International Airport, you’ve got to visit Glacier National Park. Fortunately, it’s a short 25 miles away in your Glacier Park Airport rental car. Nicknamed the “Alps of the Americas,” this century-old wilderness treasure is overflowing with natural beauty, abundant wildlife, over 700 miles of scenic hiking trails, picturesque lakes, amazing waterfalls, 10,000-foot mountain ranges and 20 active glaciers.

Conrad Mansion Museum

Get back to civilization in your Glacier Park Airport rental car, pre-1900s style at the Conrad Mansion Museum. You’ll find plenty of amenities like a pool, picnic and playground areas, camping, boating and nature trails available to guests. Located only 8.9 miles away from the Kalispell-Glacier Park International Airport, this home once belonged to the founder of Kalispell, Charles E. Conrad. Charles Conrad was a successful businessman that dreamed of building a huge Victorian home to raise his beloved family in the natural beauty of the northern wilderness. He found the perfect spot in Kalispell and successfully created the town’s first bank and city commission.

Hockaday Museum of Art

Travel a mere 9.3 miles away from the airport in your Thrifty rental car and you’ll find the Hockaday Museum of Art. Located in a turn of the century Carnegie Library building, the museum itself is a work of art — it’s actually listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Inside you’ll find an impressive permanent collection with works primarily by famous local artists of Montana, like Leonard Lopp, Bud Helbig, Ace Powell, Russell Chatham, O.C. Seltzer and more. The museum keeps their collection fresh by featuring rotating exhibits by renowned and emerging artists. It also features a “Discovery Gallery” with hands-on activities for your little ones.

Buffalo Hill Golf Club

Kalispell, Montana may not be top of mind as one of the premier golf cities in America, however the Buffalo Hill Golf Club is nothing short of professional … and pristinely manicured. Located in the Flathead Valley, just 9.6 miles away from the Kalispell-Glacier Park International Airport, you’ll need to drive your Thrifty rental car to get there. Once you’ve arrived, you can ditch the car keys and travel exclusively by golf cart while exploring this historic course dating back to 1915. In fact, Golf Digest recently voted this as one of the best courses to play in all of Montana.
