We are inquiring about various places to bring our small school of 26 students, K-7 grades, on an end of the year trip. One of the places we are interested in is Jackson. Are there hotels that are reasonably prices with a pool, etc for the kids to enjoy in the evenings? Also, what would you suggest as places to take them that are educational during the a 2 day tour?
At the visitor center on the deck there is a sign and looking glasses that point up to the cliffs on the other side of the road. I neglected to look at either and wanted to know A) What does the sign say? and B) What are people looking at through the looking glasses?
We are planning a trip to Yellowstone as part of a trip to the USA from Australia in August 2014.
Prior to this we will be in San Francisco, and my research shows its probably best to fly via Salt Lake City to Cody. Does anyone have any other suggestions?
Would also like recommendations on places to stay in Yellowstone?
After this we will be heading to New York City, so not sure if we'd depart the same way we came, or if its better from another airport?
Would love some on the ground info from people who have been or live nearby?
Hello all...great forum. As we are arriving at Yellowstone in mid-Sept. and not roughing it too badly (camping cabin at the West Yellowstone KOA), curious: the weather looks pretty chilly. Should we expect sub freezing nights?
We are unable to get lodging for our last minute Sept. trip to Yellowstone. We would like to stay then outside the park but make at least two trips into the park (driving, attractions tours). We are looking for recommended locations that are reasonable in distance. Thanks in advance.
We are traveling from florida in a 36 foot (gas) rv & pulling a 20 foot enclosed trailer,what is the fastest and least steep way out there?
My husband, two children and I will be staying at Old Faithful Inn on May 24, 25, 26, and 27 of next year (2014). This will be the first leg of a vacation that will end on June 3. We hope to see YNP as well as GTNP. Would anyone care to suggest an itinerary for us? Our kids will be 7 and 13.
How can you get from Laramie to the Denver Airport
Staying at Lake Jackson Lodge...what's the best meal.
I am planning a trip next August (2014) and would like to do both parks. I don't drive, so have to rely on tours. I'll be flying into Jackson. What is the best way to go about this?
There are lots of clips online and the travel pages here, of course, but I wondered if there was a good promotional feature-length video or similar that I could download, buy or send-for?
I am planning way-ahead but although I am really keen, my wife hasn't yet caught my bug - although she is willing to go with me.
I'd like to fire her enthusiasm a bit - her hesitant stance is only because (as she admits) of not really knowing much about the area.
I have looked-around but although there are plenty of books, I thought that a video would be the thing to really display it all to her.
Planning a trip for next Summer. I will be flying into Jackson Hole. As I don't drive, can someone provide suggestions on doing the double loop in Yellowstone? Most tour operators only do the lower loop in Jackson. I think doing just the lower loop plus GT does not do the parks justice.
Note, I will be likely booking with an outfit that specializes in wildlife.
Hi- we are staying in Teton Village for 8 days in a condo. Within those 8 days we are trying to do an overnight trip to Yellowstone so we'll have closer to 36 hrs there. Has anyone driven from Teton Village to Yellowstone (Old faithful, for example). How long did it take? Although we are going in August, it is hte very end of August, so many (most) kids will be back in school then. Also, I know August is supposed to be quite hot. But if we are in Teton Village will it be as hot as the "plains"? I am desparately hoping it won't be in the 80s the whole time we are there. I know nights will be cooler. Thanks!
Hi there on a driving holiday from Spokane to Yellowstone to Badlands then on to Arches , so far we have booked a motel in West Yellowstone mid July, want to see the geysers (Old Faithful etc) maybe buffalo as well as the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, in order to do all this we have the day. If heading to Rapid City what town would be the closest upon exiting the Park so that we could stay a night in that particular town and venture back into the Park to see more sights before finally heading on to Rapid City, as all hotels in the Park are booked for the additional night needed to have a look around. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
hey people! could you tell me about biking options in laramie?
We are looking to see the west; Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Black Hills, etc. traveling by train from Chicago to AZ?. Looking for all comments. Should we rent a car in Arizona, drive north and say return from Colorado or vice versa? As we have traveled a bit though, don't know the western US at all, any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. I have heard of a monument being built by the Indians, is it finished, where is it? Any other sights one should see?
Thanks in advance,
Years ago we used an audio driving tour on a cassette tape when we visited Yellowstone National Park. You kept your speed to about 30 mph and it described what you were seeing and included stops for getting out of the car and walking to Yellowstone attractions. Does anyone know if there is something similar on a CD and you could use in your car?
I was thinking to go to Yellowstone in my vacations, but I don´t know what visit first, any recomendation?
I also want to go America because a friend of mine tell me that I can buy Blankets, Throws with a nice design and compleately ecological, but I don´t remember the name of the firm it begin with "E".... I think
this is my first trip to yellowstone, have about 7-8 days available, does anyone know of a good info source for a personal guide that could help plan out the things our family would most like to do out there
Please could you let me know how my parents will travel from Grand Teton to Yellowstone on the 3rd May?
I have booked them a trip but understand the roads are not due to open in the South entrance until the 10th May.
Is this correct? If so, what's the alternative?
I have a family of 7 visiting me from China and they would like to take a roadtrip. Is Buffalo, WY is a safe stopover for the night ?
I am planning a Road trip from Houston, TX to YNP, not sure if there is a good rount for a 2 families with 2 kids to go?
Things good for both kids and seniors?
What trails do you recommend around the lizard creek, signal mountain and gros ventre areas?
Can we keep a Saturday night, 5:00PM reservation for dinner at Lake Hotel if we start at Grant Village in the AM and travel the loop clockwise to Lake Village by late afternoon. Main objective will be thermal features. We won't need to stop at the Canyon. Is it reasonable?
My daughter will be spending a night in Cheyenne and will also want to go out and have a few drinks and mix socially with others. is there a so-called "bed neighborhood" or an area that a cute, single girl should avoid?
Hi, I would like to make a 1 week trip to Yellowstone NP and nearby surroundings. I would be with my wife and 6 month old son and planning to do this in May/Jun/Jul/Aug
Considering that I will be traveling from NJ, can someone suggest how best can I spend my time and cover most places. I also like driving and love photography and would like to cover some scenic byways.
Some other specific questions: 1. I may be asking too much, but does someone happen to have a day wise itinerary suggestion of how to spend each of these 7-8 days in Yellowstone and Grand Teton
2. From the following months - May/Jun/Jul/Aug , what time of the year am I more likely to get cheaper rates and/or lesser crowd?
3. I am even thinking of combining this as a Road trip i.e. fly from New Jersey to Denver, then drive to Yellowstone, through some scenic routes, and then spend time in Yellowstone/Grand Teton, before taking a return flight from some airport near to these NP. Feasible/Farfetched, any thoughts ?
I am interested in taking my wife and (then) 6 months old son to the Yellowstone National Park sometime this summer (probably in June end). Please help me chalk out a plan for it. I believe flying from Buffalo to Jackson Hole would be the air travel and then we will have to hire a car. Would June end be a good time to see the flora and fauna and how would the weather be at that time? If we are planning to reach the park from Jackson Hole, what would be a good (clean and reasonably cheap) place to stay? Is accommodation available near the park or do we need to stay a few miles away and make day trips. Btw...I am planning for a 4-5 day trip. Would this be enough to see the park? Or too long or too short?
Thanks in advance for your advices.
Any to Lusk or Casper WY from Denver CO????
We are hoping to visit yellow stone nat'l park this July. We will be traveling with a travel trailer and would like to know the names of a few campgrounds that we can stay at while we explore yellow stone. Thanks Andrew
Me and my Husband will be visiting Yellowstone in late July/early August and looking to spend 4 nights at Yellowstone before heading on to Jackson. In terms of hotels in the Park I have seen from research that it is best to say in different parts of the park rather than have a base due to the travel distances. Could anyone recommend any hotels to stay in and which areas we should concentrate on with the small amount of time we have. I have also read the crowds can be quite large this time of year but we are restricted to my Husbands shutdown holidays at work so we are hoping to get up early to try and beat some of the crowds.
Thank you for any advice.
