Description

"Harley and Abby McAllister have thoroughly explored the best sections of the park for families and are sharing their experiences through their recently released book, "Glacier National Park: Adventuring with Kids." The book is family focused and emphasizes what kids and adults like to see and do while providing tips for vacationing, sample itineraries, best bets, hiking and "adventures beyond hiking"--all with families in mind."--Signature Montana

With this guide in hand, families won't risk having their "Going-to-the-Sun" drive end up feeling more like "Going-to-the-Dark-Side" with grumpy, bored children. Instead they'll be able to keep the whole family happy and ready for adventure
- Fun for all ages in one of America's most stunning parks
- Easy-to-follow organization based on park's geography
- Kid-tested hikes, historic and natural sights, wildlife viewing, boating opportunities, and more
- Information on the Junior Ranger program found throughout the National Parks Service system
- "Best Bets" and "Top Five Tips" gets everyone out of the car and into the park
- 3-, 5-, and 7-day recommended itineraries make vacation planning a breeze

With an emphasis on outdoor education and fun and an approach that zeroes in on the best options for families, Glacier National Park: Adventuring with Kids is a great resource for parents and kids alike. The McAllisters have a refreshingly honest approach--they acknowledge that kids aren't going to be excited about views and that, just like adults, little ones and teenagers get cranky when they're cold or hungry. Parents will feel confident that the adventures they recommend are sure to please.

Their [Harley and Abby McAllister's] expertise at researching, compiling and presenting useful information is outstanding, as displayed in their entire Adventuring with Kids guidebook series.... Travelers can benefit from checklists and sample itineraries to get the most out of one-day or multiday visits. The McAllisters filter out the best of the Park Service offerings and the most interesting activities an active family can do on its own.--Rich Landers "The Spokesman-Review "
Every parent knows that traveling with kids can turn a seemingly idyllic vacation into a serious challenge. Harley and Abby McAllister would like to change that.... Their guides tend to focus on a number of factors that people don't typically consider when they travel -- how long it can take to drive to a specific landmark, for example, or how to find a convenient place to stay for a night.--Nathan Weinbender "The Inlander "
