U.S. 2 will get you here from the east or west. From Missoula, U.S. 93 leads north into town on a scenic 120-mile route that takes you past Flathead Lake. The drive usually takes a solid 2 1/2 hours, no matter what the season. RVs amble along the gradually curving road during summer to the frustration of most other drivers, and icy conditions warrant added caution and reduced speeds during the winter.
