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.
Take a break from the city and head to Goat Lick Overlook and Grinnell Glacier. Change things up with these side-trips from Glacier National Park: River Rafting & Tubing (in West Glacier) and The Wilderness Club (in Eureka). Spend the 9th (Fri) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Next up on the itinerary: get to know the fascinating history of Garden Wall, contemplate the waterfront views at Swiftcurrent Lake, take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls, and admire the verdant scenery at Logan Pass.

For other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Glacier National Park attractions planner .

August in Glacier National Park sees daily highs of 83°F and lows of 48°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
