Can we assume?

1.) After spending years in the "glass canyons" of an urban center you’re feeling a little claustrophobic. You really want the "Big Open" feeling the Rocky Mountain West is famous for.

2.) You want a wonderful travel experience and not just another “notch” in your steering wheel.

3.) You want to get off the "beaten path."
If you answer yes to any of the following read more about an often overlooked travel idea to Glacier National Park.

When in Rome...

You wouldn’t bring your canoe to Venice, Italy to paddle the canals.
When you are visiting Glacier take advantage of a red "Jammer" Bus to really enjoy the park. The tour bus allows the driver to "relax" and see the incredible views. More importantly, during the leisurely tour you can swap interesting Glacier Park destinations and events with fellow travelers.
This "up-to-date" information can ensure your visit to the park will be unforgettable.

You can't say you experienced Glacier Park until you get out of your vehicle and explore. Short, easy walks are the key to Glacier Park.
Walk the “boardwalk” at Logan Pass to see the Mountain Goats.
Take a boat ride on Upper Two Medicine Lake and walk back to the General Store.
In the Swiftcurrent/Many Glacier area the choices of where to walk are limitless. A popular “flat” walk is to Redrock & Bullhead lakes to see the red sedimentary rock and blue sky. The adventurous (fit) can hike up to
Ice Berg Lake and Ptarmigan Tunnel.

Keep that Glacier Park "Feeling" a little longer

Instead of rushing down Interstate 15 to your next destination.
Drive the breathtaking Highway 89 south to Choteau, Montana.
Spend the night, then enjoy "small town life" in the morning. Be sure to drive towards the Rocky Mountain Front and see the memorable wildflower show that explodes during late June and early July. The see what the wildflowers look like visit,

From Choteau, Montana you can drive east to Great Falls and I-15 or you can continue driving down one of Montana's prettiest North/South roads.
(Highway 89/287)
