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.
Escape the urban bustle at Swiftcurrent Lake and Trail of the Cedars. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at The Polebridge Mercantile and Lodgepole Gallery and Tipi Village. Change things up with these side-trips from Glacier National Park: Home Ranch Bottoms (in Polebridge), Coram (Amazing Fun Center & Glacier Distilling Company) and Bigfork (Whistling Andy, Jewel Basin Hiking Area, & more). Spend the 2nd (Tue) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's still lots to do: hike along Highline Trail, admire the sheer force of Virginia Falls, explore the activities along St. Mary Lake, and get to know the fascinating history of Garden Wall.

October in Glacier National Park sees daily highs of 56°F and lows of 31°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
