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.
Escape the urban bustle at Goat Lick Overlook and Swiftcurrent Lake. Step out of Glacier National Park with an excursion to The Polebridge Mercantile in Polebridge--about 48 minutes away. Spend the 10th (Wed) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. The adventure continues: cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road, appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden Wall, tour the pleasant surroundings at Trail of the Cedars, and hike along Iceberg Lake Trail.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, read our Glacier National Park trip maker site .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
