Thousands of people set out each year to take their family on an unforgettable, experiential adventure for their summer family vacation. Perhaps once or twice you have even thought about it yourself? We all have grandiose desires to take our family on that epic Hollywood movie-style vacation, where all our problems get resolved, every one falls in love all over again, lives are changed, miracles happen and everyone lives happily ever after.
Some people go to great lengths and spend obscene amounts of money trying to create this fairy-tale vacation experience. We do this because we all want to experience the magic… we all want to experience something remarkable, something memorable. When we vacation we want something more than just a couple of weeks away from home, we want an experience that we will remember for a lifetime.
I am sorry to break it to you, but I do need to get one thing out of the way right up front… that miraculous hollywood-style vacation experience described above, that is probably not going to happen for you this year… not in Glacier National Park or any other destination you can pick on the map.
Sorry, but life doesn’t follow a script. It doesn’t come with an Academy award -winning director who makes sure that everything will happen exactly when it is supposed to, carefully scripting everyone to say the perfect line at exactly the right time.
Life is messy. People are imperfect. Our lives don’t follow a script, so we cant expect our vacations to either.
We all know that life isn’t perfect, but I am here today to tell you that even though life isn’t perfect, there is a destination that comes close to perfect, and in fact, it might just be close enough to perfect to make you forget about all those problems in life, at least for a moment…
The moment that you are searching for…that moment that will last a lifetime.
You see a vacation to Glacier National Park isn’t about striving to find perfection. It’s not about making sure that everything stays on schedule and happens exactly according to plan.
A vacation to Glacier National Park is about escaping… leaving all of that nonsense behind, and simply living in the moment. Its about discovering that life is about so much more than schedules and agendas, deadlines and day-planners. Its about spending quality moments together with your friends, family and loved ones. It is about making memories that will last a lifetime and often times the unexpected detours and surprises make the best memories of all.
Glacier National Park is a place where you can lose yourself on a quiet wilderness trail where the only sound is the wind in the trees and the roar of a distant waterfall. It is a place where you can leave the phone and the watch behind and relax for hours along the shore of a crystal lake as the gentle waves lap against the shoreline erasing all of your cares. It is a place where you can commune with your kiddos or your buddies around a campfire under a canopy of stars and and share moments that really matter.
Northwest Montana has never claimed to provide the perfect vacation experience, but it does provide many of the ingredients that can help orchestrate a vacation that will build memories that last a lifetime.
Of course at the top of that we have Glacier National Park with its million-plus acres of pristine beauty teaming with all kinds of wildlife and wonder. More than 700-miles of hiking trails, dozens of rivers, lakes and streams for fishing, boating, swimming and more. There are several options of outfitters in the area that can help you arrange river floats, horseback riding adventures, helicopter tours, fishing trips and more.
And outside the park we have an endless array of other activities and experiences to help you make the most of your stay in the area.
