Hello. My family is planning a roadtrip to Glacier NP this summer. We're planning on leaving our home in Minneapolis on Saturday, July 30 and returning home Sunday, August 7.
We're planning on going through ND since Sturgis will be starting up in SD. My daughter lives in Fargo so we may leave Friday night and spend the night there and then head out Saturday morning for Medora. Spend the day at Theordore Roosevelt NP and spend the night in Medora. The next morning we would leave for Havre, MT. My husband's grandparents lived in Havre and he wants to visit the underground city and visit their graves. Not sure if we would spend the night in Havre or possibly drive to Shelby. The next morning we would head to Glacier.
This is the hard part. There is so much to see and do in Glacier we're not sure where to start. We're not sure where to stay (we'd rather not camp). We'll have our 3 girls with us (21, 19 and 16). Definitely want to do the Going to the Sun road (possibly the bus tour). How do we find free hikes? We'd rather not go on our own...bears and stuff. We want to see Lake McDonald.
What are the MUST DO's for GNP on a budget??
