We were feeling especially touristy one day and decided to go to Glacier Gardens Rainforest Adventure. Not sure if it was the high prices or the attraction itself, but it just seemed like a tourist trap to me. I post this in "things to do" because my wife thought it a worthwhile activity. So, for $20 each, you join all the cruise ship passengers for a ride up Thunder "Mountain" on roads carved out of the rain forest. Nice view from a look out at 580' up and the flowers down at the bottom were nice - but worth $20? I didn't think so. Seemed more like a greenhouse trying to make ends meet after the growing season to me.

Address: 7600 Glacier Highway
Directions: On the main road north of town just before you reach Mendenhall Valley.
