Glacier National Park - what you want to know!
One of the best kept secrets in America, Glacier Park is possibly the most beautiful, awe-inspiring natural wonders in the United States. Designated as a national park in 1910, Glacier is comprised of 1,600 square miles with elevations ranging from 3,150 to 10,466 feet (Mount Cleveland).
Open daily, year-round, but some visitor services such as hotels, tours and restaurants, are only open from late May through September. Every road or hiking trail offers spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife viewing.
Glacier National Park Centennial
2001 is the official Glacier National Park Centennial and there are special events planned for the entire year. Visit the website and follow along with the celebration. More than 35 Hollywood films were set in Glacier National Park over the years. In honor of film being an American tradition, the Glacier Centennial Program is hosting a film festival throughout 2013 .

Don't leave home without the Flathead Guide
The ultimate tourist T-shirt
There is a hilarious new website called Montana Sucks - don't let the name fool you. Their purpose is to try to convince tourists not to visit Montana by spreading a rumor that Montana sucks. This is an entertaining spoof using a Smokey Bear look-alike who says, "Only you can prevent tourist tires" (from entering Montana). Check out Montana Sucks and get the definitive tourist tee shirt.
Planning a vacation?
There is so much to see and experience within the boundaries of the park that you could stay for a month and never see everything. If you are planning to visit Glacier on your vacation, you just must dedicate one day to experiencing Flathead Lake, which lies southwest of the park abutting the city of Kalispell. This is the largest natural lake west of the Great Lakes and rated as one of the purest and most beautiful lakes in the world. Learn more about Flathead Lake!
