A gorgeous drive through a fantastic park. Glacier is cleaner, nicer, less crowded, and overall a better "get away from everything" National Park than Yellowstone (as much as I ALSO like Yellowstone...). Please, though, for the love of god, STAY AWAY FROM THE WILD ANIMALS! In a 10 minute period, I watched FOUR idiot tourists trying to pet an Elk,... More

Honestly this is one of the most picturesque drives there is. Plan for plenty of time so you can stop and see the sites, a convertible or motorcycle is the best but it has views you won't get anywhere else. There are several pull outs where you can take pictures, and enjoy the scenery. It is a fun drive with... More

This has to be a top five national park in the US. The good and the bad is the location - it stay's a gem since it doesn't receive the tourists if was located closer to a metropolis, but getting there is a little bit of a chore. The scenery and attractions in this park are amazing.

There are no words fit to describe the majesty of this place. Breathtaking is only a beginning and stunning barely a synonym. If ever opportunity arises to visit, don't squander a moment of it!

This put my head and heart in a spin because I cannot handle heights. If heights don't bother you, the views are spectacular and the area is as beautiful as you have heard!

OMG I've driven all over the world and this has to be of the best scenic drives I've ever done-at least once you have to say you drove 'to the sun' in Montana, you won't regret putting it on your list.

This road starts at the bottom end of Lake McDonald near Apgar, MT and winds North up to the top at 6,650 feet (I think) which you reach after 30 or so miles and then goes over the top, which is the Continental Divide for another 20 miles or so to Swiftcurrent, MT. It is one of the pretties drives... More

Unspoiled and wonderful. Some parts of this road are not for the timid! You have to do this at least once.
