Yellowstone National Park

An exceptionally diverse landscape and varied wildlife have made Yellowstone National Park one of America's most popular parks.
S Rim Trail and Beaver Ponds Loop Trail will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Mount Washburn and Upper Geyser Basin. Go for a jaunt from Yellowstone National Park to Gardiner to see Horseback Riding Tours about 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: take in the natural beauty of Grand Prismatic Spring, explore the striking landscape at Gibbon Falls, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Artists’ Paintpots, and explore the activities along Lake Butte Overlook.

For traveler tips, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Yellowstone National Park online attractions planner .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 66°F, and evening lows to 34°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
