Whitefish, MT

Pros: I've lived here for most of my life so it's home, it's community, part of who I am...

Cons: The dynamics of the entire valley have changed with so many new people, businesses and subdivisions being built...

This is a good place to Live until you die.

General info: I know I will never have my "hometown" back again and I'm accepting that but it does make me sad...
