The town of West Yellowstone has served as a gateway to Yellowstone National Park since the early 1900s.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Midway Geyser Basin and Fishing Charters & Tours. Visiting Old Faithful and Artists’ Paintpots will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting West Yellowstone side-trips: Yellowstone National Park (North Rim Trail, Beryl Spring, &more) and Sacajawea Park (in Polson). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center and find something for the whole family at Yellowstone Big Gun Fun.

The peaks of Grand Teton National Park aren't the highest in the world, but they sit atop what might be nature's archetypes for mountains.
Take a break from the city and head to Grand Teton and Inspiration Point. Step off the beaten path and head to 42-mile Scenic Loop Drive and Chapel of the Transfiguration. Explore Grand Teton National Park's surroundings by going to Yellowstone National Park (Upper Geyser Basin, Castle Geyser, &more). There's still lots to do: take a memorable drive along Teton Park Road, explore the striking landscape of String Lake, trek along Menor's Ferry Historical Trail, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Elk Ranch Flats Turnout, Grand Teton National Park.
