An exceptionally diverse landscape and varied wildlife have made Yellowstone National Park one of America's most popular parks.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Old Faithful, Dragon's Mouth Springs, Grand Prismatic Spring, and other attractions. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Old Faithful Visitor Education Center and Midway Geyser Basin. When in Yellowstone National Park, make a side trip to see Big Sky Chapel in Big Sky, approximately 1h 50 min away. There's lots more to do: explore the stunning scenery at Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, witness a stunning natural landmark at West Thumb Geyser Basin, and look for all kinds of wild species at Firehole Canyon Drive.
