An exceptionally diverse landscape and varied wildlife have made Yellowstone National Park one of America's most popular parks.
Get some historical perspective at Uncle Tom's Trail and Yellowstone Historic Center. Get a sense of the local culture at Fort Yellowstone Historic District and Chapel of the Sacred Heart. Venture out of the city with trips to River Rafting & Tubing (in Gardiner), West Yellowstone (Fishing Charters & Tours & Nature & Wildlife Tours) and Grand Teton (in Grand Teton National Park). The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Firehole Canyon Drive, take in the natural beauty of Grand Prismatic Spring, explore the stunning scenery at Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, and hike along Artists’ Paintpots.
