Why Glacier National Park is Better Than Yellowstone

Listen, I understand Yellowstone is a great national park that is pretty close by, but to be perfectly honest, I think the other national park in Montana, Glacier National Park, is better than Yellowstone. I grew up near that area and I loved every minute I spent there. Yet, I believe it doesn’t get the credit it properly deserves. I will give you four reasons why I think Glacier National Park is better than Yellowstone.

Where Yellowstone gets around four million people a year, Glacier gets around two million. So that means less tourists and more sights that you can see without a huge group of people as well.



Closer City



Bozeman is about 45 minutes away from Yellowstone, but Glacier is right next to Whitefish, a town very similar to Bozeman. So that means if you are in of supplies or a place to stay you don’t have to travel very far.



Going to the Sun Road



Yellowstone has a few beautiful drives but honestly, nothing beats Going to the Sun Road at Glacier National Park. Every time we used that road we saw everything from mountain goats to moose.






Yellowstone has a few hot springs but during the summertime if you want to cool off, Glacier has Lake McDonald and it’s breathtaking. Plus there are a few lodges you can stay at Lake McDonald or you can travel back into Whitefish and go to Whitefish Lake or even go a bit further and check out Flathead Lake.
