Visiting Montana’s National Parks? This Guide Will Be Helpful
Figuring out where to go in Montana's national parks can be confusing, but this new guide will be helpful.
With the weather warming up, Montana prepares for the millions of visitors heading to Yellowstone and Glacier National Park. People come from all around to hike, camp, or explore what these two incredible national parks offer yearly.
Many of these newcomers have one problem that happens constantly. We aren't talking about trying to pet or getting too close to wildlife but getting lost.
Yellowstone and Glacier have many roads and trails that confuse tourists on whether they should take a right or left toward their destination, but that is about to change.
Thrillist posted that the National Park Service and Google Maps have teamed up to make your visit to any national park in America a little smoother.
Why did this partnership happen? Many tourists don't do their due diligence and research where popular spots or hidden gems of Yellowstone or Glacier might be, and Google is changing that.
Google Maps will display where all the entrances are to the national parks, campgrounds, road work, and spots of interest to help visitors explore and discover more attractions in the park.
This is a feature my dad could have used dearly back in the day when visiting Glacier National Park. As much as I love my dad, he was a guy who believed he knew exactly where he was going and the best spots in the park. He was a big road map guy.
So if you are traveling to Glacier or Yellowstone this summer or any national parks across America, Google Maps will be the perfect guide.
