A Few Quick Tips For Visiting Glacier National Park

I recently had the opportunity to partner with Radisson Rewards to visit Kalispell, Montana and Glacier National Park. Visiting Glacier had been on my wishlist for a long time, and Iโ€™m so glad I got to experience it before all the glaciers have melted. I decided to write a quick guide based off of my own visit to help make your own trip easier. Enjoy the park!

A Week In Montana and Minneapolis with Radisson Rewards

Last month, Radisson Rewards gave me 1 million points and told me to book a dream vacation. I was told I could go anywhere in the USA, but I had to visit at least two different places during my trip. One of the National Parks that has been on my bucket list for quite awhile is Glacier National Park, so when they told me a brand new Country Inn & Suites had just opened up in Kalispell, Montana back in June, I knew that was where I wanted to base my trip around.

Checking In: The Radisson Red in Downtown Minneapolis

I recently went on the trip of a lifetime with Radisson Hotels to Glacier National Park in Montana and to Minneapolis, all booked using 1 million Radisson Rewards. While planning this epic trip, I opted for Minneapolis for several reasons: 1) the State Fair would be in town, and Minnesota has the 2nd largest State Fair in the country after Texas!; 2) Iโ€™ve been to Minneapolis before, but had never explored properly; 3) I have always wanted to visit the Mall of America; 4) Radisson has some of their best property redemptions in Minneapolis, including the Radisson Blu Downtown, the Radisson Blu at the Mall of America, and the Radisson RED Downtown; and 5) Minneapolis is one of the few non-stop flight options from Kalispell, Montana. Initially, I had planned to spend more time in Minneapolis exploring all three luxury Radisson properties, but my travel schedule unfortunately did not allow it. So, after some research, I picked the Radisson RED for my time in Minneapolis for a unique and modern hotel stay experience.

Ultimate Alaska: Cruising Glaciers and Fjords Onboard the Seabourn Sojourn

Cruising Alaska has always been on my bucket list, so when I was given the opportunity to sail in luxury on the Seabourn Sojourn for the 14-Day Ultimate Alaska Glacier and Fjord Adventure in late June, I snatched it up. The itinerary took us on a two week journey out of Anchorage (Seward) to Vancouver through some of the best spots in Southeast Alaska and the Inside Passage, like Tracy Arm and the Misty Fjords. We were able to do excursions such as a helicopter flight up to a dogsledding camp, kayaking up to a glacier with the Ventures by Seabourn team, and taking my very first seaplane flight over the Misty Fjords. I found that choosing the 14-day Alaska cruise option made for the best itinerary over most 7-day cruise options, and my experience with the weather while sailing in late June and early July was wonderful. I think during the entire time cruising Alaska and Canada, we only had two days of rain, so we were very lucky that the good weather followed us all the way to Vancouver.
