Where to go for a mind-blowing good time on the West’s most beautiful road
Glacier National Park lies in northern Montana. This is a big park—1,583 square miles—and deserves at least four days ($25 per vehicle per week).
- Nearest airports: Great Falls is about 170 miles to the east of the park’s east entrance at St. Mary. Kalispell is about 45 miles from the park’s west entrance at West Glacier.
- The weather: In August, expect pleasantly warm days—high 70s—with a chance of afternoon thunderstorms.
