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 Morning Glory Pool, Artist Point, Mammoth Hot Springs, and other attractions. Venture out of the city with trips to Grand Teton National Park (Oxbow Bend Turnout, Grand Teton National Park & Grand Teton). Next up on the itinerary: witness a stunning natural landmark at Old Faithful, take in the dramatic natural features at Lower Geyser Basin, contemplate the waterfront views at Dragon's Mouth Springs, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Uncle Tom's Trail.
