The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Mormon Row Historic District and snap pictures at Snake River Bridge.

An exceptionally diverse landscape and varied wildlife have made Yellowstone National Park one of America's most popular parks.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at S Rim Trail and Upper Falls of the Yellowstone River. Take a break from the city and head to Fountain Paint Pot and Old Faithful Visitor Education Center. Change things up with a short trip to River Rafting & Tubing in Gardiner (about 1h 15 min away). And it doesn't end there: witness a stunning natural landmark at West Thumb Geyser Basin, appreciate the extensive heritage of Uncle Tom's Trail, identify plant and animal life at Firehole Canyon Drive, and cruise along Grand Loop Road.
