Glacier National Park

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 Virginia Falls and Trail of the Cedars. Visiting Swiftcurrent Lake and Highline Trail will get you outdoors. Spend the 9th (Sun) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's lots more to do: stroll through Iceberg Lake Trail, take in the dramatic natural features at Jackson Glacier Overlook, contemplate the waterfront views at St. Mary Lake, and admire the sheer force of St.Mary Falls.

For where to stay, maps, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Glacier National Park holiday planner.

Expect a daytime high around 70°F in September, and nighttime lows around 40°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 12th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
