Glacier National Park — 2 nights

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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Going-to-the-Sun Road, McDonald Creek, Trail of the Cedars, and other attractions. Take a break from the city and head to Logan Pass and Avalanche Lake. It doesn't end there: explore the activities along Lake McDonald.
