I think it's an understatement to say that visiting Kalispell for about a month was the best experience of my life as it is truly a beautiful place. I loved visiting Glacier National Park that is literally ten minutes away from the city and the local campus of the University Of Montana is nearby as well and it is rated as one of the top colleges in the nation. Also just being surrounded by the beautiful mountains and scenery around me made me feel relaxed and calm.

What stood out out to me the most were the beautiful scenery and nature and wildlife that the city of Kalispell had to offer and therefore I have to say it was a great experience and nothing was bad about it.
