An exceptionally diverse landscape and varied wildlife have made Yellowstone National Park one of America's most popular parks.
Bring the kids along to Grand Loop Road and S Rim Trail. Visit Fort Yellowstone Historic District and Earthquake Lake for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Yellowstone National Park: Chapel of the Sacred Heart (in Moose), River Rafting & Tubing (in Gardiner) and West Yellowstone (Museum of the Yellowstone, Fishing Charters & Tours, &more). There's much more to do: cruise along Firehole Canyon Drive, take in the dramatic natural features at Gibbon Falls, take in breathtaking views at Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, and take in the natural beauty of Old Faithful.
