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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Glacier National Park: The Polebridge Mercantile (in Polebridge), River Rafting & Tubing (in West Glacier) and Hungry Horse Resevoir (in Hungry Horse). Spend the 18th (Tue) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's lots more to do: take a memorable drive along Going-to-the-Sun Road, stroll through Grinnell Glacier, appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden Wall, and contemplate the waterfront views at Swiftcurrent Lake.

For traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Glacier National Park online journey planner .

Expect a daytime high around 73°F in September, and nighttime lows around 39°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
