The glaciers from which Glacier National Park takes its name mostly dissipated eons ago, but they left behind a scoured landscape of high and steep mountain peaks, sparkling lakes, lush alpine meadows, and thick forests.
Get a sense of the local culture at Museum of the Plains Indian and Garden Wall. Discover out-of-the-way places like Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park and Running Eagle Falls. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Glacier National Park: Glacier Distilling Company (in Coram), Flathead Lake (in Polson) and West Glacier (River Rafting & Tubing & Glacier View Golf Club). Spend the 8th (Sat) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's still lots to do: stroll through Trail of the Cedars, explore the activities along Fishercap Lake, hike along Swiftcurrent Lake, and look for all kinds of wild species at Jewel Basin Hiking Area.
