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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Glacier National Park: Scenic Point Trail (in East Glacier Park) and River Rafting & Tubing (in West Glacier). Spend the 4th (Sun) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. The adventure continues: explore and take pictures at Going-to-the-Sun Road, contemplate the waterfront views at Avalanche Lake, take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls, and explore the striking landscape at Grinnell Glacier.

To find reviews, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Glacier National Park trip itinerary maker .

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in August, and nighttime lows around 48°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
