Glacier National Park — 2 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.
Kick off your visit on the 22nd (Thu): trek along Grinnell Glacier. Here are some ideas for day two: appreciate the views at Logan Pass, admire the sheer force of Virginia Falls, then cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road, and finally take some stellar pictures from Jackson Glacier Overlook.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Glacier National Park trip simple and quick.

In September, daily temperatures in Glacier National Park can reach 24°C, while at night they dip to 5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Sat) early enough to fly to Yellowstone National Park.

More than the country of car-packed streets seen in TV shows and movies, the United States of America is a complex and diverse home to over 300 million people living in a wide range of landscapes and climates. From its big-city skyscrapers to its sprawling natural parks, the country's ''melting pot'' combines many ethnic groups that share a strong sense of national identity despite their cultural differences. A country of road trips and big blue skies, the United States harbors orderly cities filled with restaurants, parks, museums, and innumerable sightseeing opportunities, as well as pristine natural areas perfect for a holiday in the great outdoors. To see as much as you can of this diverse land quickly, drive over some of the more than 6 million km (4 million mi) of highways leading through deserts, mountain peaks, fertile fields, and giant urban centers.
