Montana Spot Lands In Top 5 For Best Places To Visit In The World
We know Montana is a popular place for tourists with people traveling from all over to visit and partake in all that we have to offer here in Big Sky Country, however, this is next level.
When you think of all the incredible places on our planet, there is no doubt several spots that people have on their "travel bucket list". There is all of the history of Europe with the century-old buildings, the art, and all of the culture. Then there are the pyramids in Egypt that date back thousands of years.
So to have a location in Montana make the list of Best Places In The World To Visit is a big deal.
With all of the lakes, rivers, and mountains here in Montana, it might seem like a tough choice to pick just one spot, however according to the folks at U.S. News and World Report, there is a place in Montana that makes the list, and it won't come as a big surprise to most Montanans.
Glacier National Park made the Top 30 Best Places In The World and not only did it make the list, it's actually in the Top 5.
Glacier comes in ranked at #3. In fact, the only two spots ranked higher were Paris at #1 and Bora Bora at #2. So what locations did GNP beat out? London, Maui, the Swiss Alps, The Great Barrier Reef, Banff, and Tahiti just to name a few.
We learned recently that Glacier National Park was voted the best National Park in the U.S. and with good reason. With over 1 million acres of beauty to enjoy, Glacier also has the distinction of being connected to Waterton National Park which is on the Canadian side as part of the International Peace Park.
