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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Museum of the Plains Indian and Garden Wall. Shop till you drop at The Polebridge Mercantile and Lodgepole Gallery and Tipi Village. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Glacier National Park: Home Ranch Bottoms (in Polebridge), Coram (Amazing Fun Center & Glacier Distilling Company) and Jewel Basin Hiking Area (in Bigfork). Spend the 2nd (Tue) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's lots more to do: trek along Highline Trail, explore the activities along Swiftcurrent Lake, stroll through Iceberg Lake Trail, and admire all the interesting features of Going-to-the-Sun Road.

To see traveler tips, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Glacier National Park trip itinerary maker site .

October in Glacier National Park sees daily highs of 56°F and lows of 31°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
