An exceptionally diverse landscape and varied wildlife have made Yellowstone National Park one of America's most popular parks.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Uncle Tom's Trail and Mormon Row Historic District. Your inner history buff will appreciate Yellowstone Historic Center and Earthquake Lake. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Yellowstone National Park: River Rafting & Tubing (in Gardiner), Chapel of the Sacred Heart (in Moose) and West Yellowstone (Fishing Charters & Tours, Nature & Wildlife Tours, & more). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Grand Loop Road, steep yourself in history at Fort Yellowstone Historic District, take in the natural beauty of Lone Star Geyser, and take in breathtaking views at Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.

To see more things to do, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Yellowstone National Park journey site .
