Really awesome, beautiful nature picturesque time to see what the family parking is very limited but well worth the way or the walk if you have to park down the street and walk up. There is lots of pictures to take and the boardwalk takes you around the trail where you can see several different hot pots and geysers and the river is right near them so you can see fishing animals in the stream.
Probably the closest geysers basin to Old Faithful basin on Grand-loop road in Yellowstone National Park. It has many hot springs/pools and few geysers reachable by boardwalk. These include Emerald pool that used to be more colorful. Some of the hot water coming from geysers and hot springs flow into Iron Spring Creek that passes through the basin. It is a nice place to take pictures. The parking lot is not huge, so if you want to get a parking spot get there early.
