It’s winter and your options for activities are limited. But that doesn’t mean you should stay inside watching TV until birds start chirping again. There’s plenty of indoor activities for seniors in Kalispell.
You may have tried one of these activities years ago, or maybe there’s something on this list you’ve never done before. Either way, why not give it a shot? Snag a significant other or friend to join you, and choose a day over the next few weeks to get out of the house. You’ll be glad you did.
What to Do Indoors in Kalispell
Here are some of our residents’ favorite indoor activities in Kalispell:
Hockaday Museum of Art
Art lovers, where are you? This one is perfect for you. If you’ve never been, you’re missing out! It’s home to numerous works of art by Montana artists, both current and historic. Plus, it’s housed in a stately Carnegie Library building, which is sure to impress.
Conrad Mansion Museum
We’ve recommended Conrad Mansion before, and for good reason. This home is one of the staples of Kalispell and is central to our town’s history. After all, Kalispell’s founder lived here. You can get a tour of the home or visit the museum to see real relics from the 18-1900s displayed much as they were in that time period.
For example, you can see up close and in-person real attire worn as early as the 1890s, and learn about the different uses for such clothing or history buffs, it’s truly fascinating.
Magic Diamond Casino or Windiggers Casino
Play some slot machines or blackjack while having a drink at this hometown casino. It’s a good way to get out of the house, take your mind off things, and kick back with a group of friends. Plus, you’ll be toasty and warm indoors no matter what the winter weather is doing outside.
Kalispell Main Street Historic District
You’ve probably been here before, but it’s so lovely, why not go again? You’ll have to walk outside to get to the quaint, unique shops and cafes, but it’s worth it. Did you know our historic district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994? We’re proud of our downtown.
Montana Brew Bus
If you love brews, spirits, and food, this activity in Kalispell is perfect for you. This bus will take you and a group of people on a fun tour of area breweries. Your stops may vary depending on the season’s route, but common stops include Sunrift Brewing Company, Brass Tap, and Whitefish Handcrafted Spirits, among others. You’ll love visiting multiple local breweries and distilleries without having to worry about driving yourself.
It’s easy to get cooped up and bored during the wintertime. Let’s cure that with an adventure to somewhere indoors in Kalispell. You’ll see there are plenty of fun memories left to be made for seniors, like yourself, right in your hometown.
