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.
Garden Wall and Mission Mountain Winery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Goat Lick Overlook and Going-to-the-Sun Road. Get out of town with these interesting Glacier National Park side-trips: Bigfork (Jewel Basin Hiking Area, Whistling Andy, & more), Glacier View Golf Club (in West Glacier) and Glacier Distilling Company (in Coram). Spend the 19th (Fri) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Spend the 25th (Thu) exploring nature at Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park. There's lots more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Swiftcurrent Mountain, trek along Siyeh Pass, tour the pleasant surroundings at Piegan Pass, and play a few rounds at Meadow Lake Golf Resort.

The Jackson Hole valley is approximately 97 km (60 mi) long and 24 km (15 mi) wide, encompassing the town of Jackson, Teton Village, and the northern section of Grand Teton National Park.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Grand Teton. On the 1st (Wed), look for all kinds of wild species at Grand Teton. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate the long history of Mormon Row Historic District, take in the spiritual surroundings of Chapel of the Transfiguration, then explore the world behind art at National Museum of Wildlife Art, and finally get engrossed in the history at Murie Centre.

For maps, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Jackson Hole trip builder app .

Do a combination of taxi and flight from Glacier National Park to Jackson Hole in 6 hours. Alternatively, you can drive. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Glacier National Park in May, with highs in Jackson Hole at 60°F and lows at 33°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
