It is a pain to get off the highway to get to it due to tolls but it is only about 10 min from the highway. The totems are interesting it would have definitely been better to go during the summer when the gift shop was open but otherwise it was a nice place to get out of the car for a bit. There is a porta potty for a restroom.
This museum was so informative and interactive. Our 2 year old was able to touch everything! I was impressed by all of the exhibits and it really helps you understand what it was like on the Lewis and Clark Exhibition. The trails outside were nice but the one that goes to the river is not completely stroller friendly. We will defiantly be returning.
Good place to get out and let everyone get some exercise. They trails are nicely kept and the information on the fort is interesting. The restrooms were in very nice condition as well.
We had a fun time getting out and stretching our legs at this little stop. The lady was very informative and she was able to answer all of our questions. There is also a park for kids to run around and restroom.
It was such a great museum that entertains adults as well as children. They keep everything clean and updated. The interactive exhibits were definitely nice especially for our 2 year old. The amount of artifacts they have is also impressive. I would recommend spending at least 3-4 hours here. The have traveling exhibits as well but those are extra.
We watched the sunrise there and it was defiantly worth the stop. Make sure you get there early so you can park up in the top parking lot so you won't have to climb up a whole bunch of steps.
This is a wonderful resort with tons of things to do. For kids and adults there is an arcade, bowling alley, outdoor games, heated pool, hot tubs, lake, hiking, and a really big playground. There is usually live entertainment in the evening and there is a general store if you forgot something and don't want to go into town. The cabins themselves are kept nice and clean and they are new. We were very pleased with our stay. They also have golf carts to rent.
This is a very off the beaten track backroad through the mountains. It takes you by some pretty waterfalls and hiking trails. It is a one way so you have to enter for the east side of the park and you will exit by the Alpine visitor center. Most people don't bother but all of the tour buses do take their visitors on this road.
This is a really nice visitor center with a huge gift shop connected to it. The gift shop also has some grab and go food options. The trail that is on the other side of the parking lot is also well worth the stop. There is usually a huge line for bathrooms we ended up driving further on for restrooms.
This was one of our favorite stops on our road trip. The train is really cool but the views during the ride are spectacular. Buy your tickets in advance! I am so grateful we did because when we got to the depot their was a huge line. There are basically 2 options or train cars. there is the open ones that do not have a roof and the ones that have a roof but have open windows. We chose to ride in the one with a roof since it was July and we didn't want to get hot or sunburnt. We had a 2 year old and she was not scared of the loud engine but a lot of the other kids were scared of how loud the train was. If you are traveling with a kid who does not like loud noise I would sit toward the back. You will ride all the way up the mountain side then you will stop at another depot so the train can refill before you head back down. It is like a 10 min stop. When they bring the train back they will hook on to the opposite end. Again the views are spectacular and we will definitely be going back.
