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 Running Eagle Falls and Virginia Falls. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Garden Wall and St.Mary Falls. Get out of town with these interesting Glacier National Park side-trips: Willow's HuckleberryLand (in Hungry Horse) and The Polebridge Mercantile (in Polebridge). Spend the 3rd (Sat) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Spend the 9th (Fri) exploring nature at Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park. There's still lots to do: trek along Highline Trail, explore the activities along McDonald Creek, and stroll through Swiftcurrent Lake.

To find ratings, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Glacier National Park trip planner .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 48°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
