The adventure continues: wander the streets of Old Town Scottsdale, examine the collection at Buddy Stubbs Harley-Davidson, stroll through The Bajada Nature Trail, and take in nature's colorful creations at Desert Botanical Garden.

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 in touch with nature at Going-to-the-Sun Road and Grinnell Glacier. There's lots more to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls, hike along Trail of the Cedars, stroll through Avalanche Lake, and contemplate the waterfront views at Swiftcurrent Falls.
