Art is something that makes you breathe with a different kind of happiness.” – Anni Albers

Whitefish Named 2021 Friendliest City

Whitefish was named the 2021 friendliest city in the U.S. by travel website Expedia. The list referred to Whitefish as “A gateway to Glacier National Park, outdoor enthusiasts will love the outdoorsy delights this Montana town offers.”

Between January 2019 and December 2020, Expedia searched their positive reviews that featured the words friendly and amiable.  Bingo, Whitefish, Montana had the most hits.

Making The List

The ranking of “The USA’s Friendliest Cities of 2021” used Expedia traveler reviews to select the 20 nicest towns throughout the U.S.
The list also credited the top-ranked towns with “an overall feel-good energy” and positive experiences, like locals providing an “outstanding dinner recommendation” and being “greeted with smiles and hellos (or at least smiling eyes over a mask).”
