    • Vacation idea: Yellowstone/Badlands/Black Hill/Crow Fair

      Yellowstone National Park Mar 22, 2014 at 11:20 PM

      Dear all,
      I hope you can help me with my quest!
      My elder parents are visiting me from Europe and we would love to go and see the wonders of Native American lands and landscapes.
      We are looking for tour operators that offer fully escorted tours of
      black hills
      (Mt Rushmore would be great to see if possible)
      and if possible, it would be awesome to see the Crow Fair Parade in August.
      All the tours I saw are either drive by yourself or on chinese buses (I have experience with them and they rush you all the way and don't let you enjoy more than 1 hour in each place).
      It would be amazing if we could lodge in a cabin in Yellowstone for a more relaxing take on the tour.
      We would stay about 7 maximum 8 days, leaving from New York probably in August or September.
      Do you know of any reputable company or tour that treats this route? Is it so unusual? I havn't been able to find anything including the above mentioned.
      Thanks for any help you will give me!

      Road Trip Including Yellowstone

      Yellowstone National Park Jan 1, 2014 at 8:01 AM

      Hi me and my Husband are starting to plan a trip for the last 2 weeks of July and 1st week of August from the UK to include Yellowstone. We tried to do this last year and got some great advice but unfortunately my husband could not get the time off work that was needed, however this year we have managed to get 3 weeks. I have started to look at a very early plan:

      Rapid City (or that area)
      Yellowstone Park - Looking at 4 or 5 nights.
      Estes Park
      Colarado Springs
      Fly home from Denver

      We would love to try and fit in Arches National park etc.. but not sure if that is going to be possible?
      This is only a loose first draft plan, would anyone recommend a different route or flying to a different area to start the trip, I was debating flying to Rapid City to start from there?
      Thank you for your help in advance.

      Sorry, another crowds question

      Yellowstone National Park Dec 22, 2013 at 2:01 PM

      Hi, folks. I was looking for a "special" family vacation this year. I visited Yellowstone solo about 5 years ago and I managed to hit the major highlights in two days, but I really want to go back for a much more leisure right now it's our most likely choice.

      The only issue - the summer is shaping up that the visit would have to be in early to mid-July. The commentary I've found so far on crowds is mixed. Some say can still leave the crowds behind quickly via hiking, which is great, but others seem to argue it's brutal...

      Right now, I would plan on staying in West Yellowstone, and we'd be there 5 full days. I think we can be fairly relaxed and still see it all with that much time. I figure the big ticket sights (i.e. Old Faithful) can be done early in the morning, and then fill the day with other short hikes. I still have modestly young kids (6&8), so long back country stuff really isn't on the table for me.

      Still, the question nags - am I setting myself up for a disaster of a trip with crowds? For example, my recollection of some of the parking lots (i.e. at the Artist Paint Pots) was that during peak times it must be impossible to find a spot. But maybe my memory is failing me :) ? Interested in what my fellow travelers think.

      Ideas for Yellowstone

      Yellowstone National Park Oct 7, 2013 at 1:35 AM

      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?

      Good promotional videos?

      Yellowstone National Park Jul 2, 2013 at 12:46 PM

      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.

      Yellowstone and Grand Teton Itinerary

      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.

    • Teton Village to Yellowstone and August weather

      Teton Village Jun 26, 2013 at 3:01 PM

      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!

    • Where to stay upon exiting the park heading to Rapid City

      Yellowstone National Park Jun 23, 2013 at 4:11 PM

      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.

      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?
