About a month ago, my mom came out to Missoula from New York to visit - which meant I had to figure out some kind of activity for us to do. A co-worker suggested taking her up to Bigfork, so that's what we did - I hadn't been there yet either, so it was a new experience for both of us. And it was great! Flathead Lake is a beautiful site, I can see why it's such a popular spot.

That's why it was no surprise to find that Thrillist named Bigfork one of the best lake towns in America to spend your summer. Not even including the lake and all the fishing and hiking that goes on there, you've also got the Riverbend Concert Series, the Bigfork Festival of the Arts, and the Bigfork Summer Playhouse in the area.

Will you be making the trip to Bigfork to hang out this summer?
