The Going-to-the-Sun Road is one of the most scenic drives in America.

It offers some of the most breathtaking views of alpine forests, towering snow-capped mountains, and deep valleys.

The road was completed in 1932 after almost two decades of construction. And, it has been thrilling visitors ever since. It was designed to allow visitors to experience the beauty of the Park from the comfort of their vehicles. It certainly delivers on that promise.
