Belle Plaine

— 5 nights
Belle Plaine is a city in Scott County, Minnesota, United States. Get some cultural insight at Fort Ridgely and Dassel Area Historical Society & Ergot Museum. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to W.W. Mayo House and Sakatah Lake State Park. Venture out of the city with trips to New Ulm (Glockenspiel & Minnesota Music Hall of Fame), Birch Coulee Battlefield (in Morton) and Chankaska Creek Ranch & Winery (in Kasota). There's still lots to do: stroll around Alexander Ramsey Park, don't miss a visit to Minnesota Twine Ball, stroll through Belle Plaine Veterans Memorial Park, and relax in the rural setting at Luceline Orchard.

Glacier National Park

— 7 nights

Crown of the Continent

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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to McDonald Creek and Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park. Step out of the city life by going to Iceberg Lake and Baring Falls. And it doesn't end there: hike along Cracker Lake Hike, explore the activities along Middle Fork of the Flathead, tour the pleasant surroundings at Siyeh Pass, and get to know the fascinating history of Garden Wall.
