The park features the famous Going-to-the-Sun Road. This visitor favorite is one of the most stunning drives in the world. The winding road spans 50 miles with breathtaking views of glaciers, mountain peaks and gorgeous lakes.

The beauty of Glacier National Park doesn’t end with the natural splendor. The park is home to six architectural wonders that are registered National Historic Landmarks, including the Lake McDonald Lodge and Many Glacier Hotel.

If you’re traveling with children to the park, kids have the opportunity to join the National Park Service’s Junior Ranger program. Upon completing a ranger-led program and at least five activities in the Junior Ranger booklet, kids will receive a badge and the title of Junior Ranger.

Grizzly bears, mountain goats, wolverines and lynx are known to inhabit the park, as well as hundreds of species of birds, many of which can be seen while traveling through the park.

The park was founded in 1910 and accommodates approximately 1.8 million visitors a year. Click here for more information from the National Park Service website.
