Best things to do in 【Yellowstone National Park】

執筆者 : teslife

I went to Yellow stone national park.

There was so beautiful and actually the was my bucket list that i wanted go to Yellow stone national park.

In this article, I would like to introduce how to get around Yellowstone National Park and recommend places to stay.

Unfortunately, I only had two days and two nights to really explore the place.

However, I was able to get around there efficiently and had a lot of fun in two days, so I would like to share it with you.

Bozeman Yellowstone Airport

There are several airports you can use to get there, but I used Bozeman Airport.

The airport was unlike any other airport I had ever been to, it was a warm place filled with the warmth of wood.

I like advanced Airport like Doha Qatar Airport, but i probably say i prefer like Bozeman Airport.

After getting off the plane, I went to rent a car.

I was already received at the AVIS.  So all I had to do was go to reception, show my ID and get the car keys.

My first destination was Grand Prismatic Spring, the most famous part of Yellowstone National Park, which takes two and a half hours from here.

It took about 30-50 minutes to get there without even a gas station, so you'll need to prepare gas, water, and food as soon as you leave the airport.



I entered from the west entrance.

I think people coming from Bozeman Airport will use this entrance to head to Grand Prismatic Spring.

Roosevelt Arch, pictured above, is located at the north entrance.

Therefore, the recommended route is to start by sightseeing in the West Area from Bozeman Airport, stay overnight in West Yellowstone, sightsee in the North Area the next day, and return to Bozeman Airport.

The entrance fee is like this.

Since I was only there for two days, I bought a one-week ticket for $35.

Grand Prismatic Spring


This is the most famous spot in Yellowstone National Park.

I wanted to come to Yellowstone National Park because I wanted to come here.

First of all, I think everyone will go to the Grand Prismatic Spring Parking Lot.

But you can walk there for a few minutes and see it right in front of you.

And when I went there, there was so much steam that I didn't even know what was in there.

And if you want to see pictures like the one above, you have to go to Grand Prismatic Spring Overlook.

You have to park your car at the Fairy Falls Parking Lot, which is a 5-minute drive from the parking lot, and walk for about 15 minutes.

The view from there is truly beautiful and the fountain spring in vivid colors.



You will see bison many times as you move through the park.

Sometimes there may be traffic jams due to the bison.

But you have to wait for them to pass even if you are in a hurry.

But I think it will be a very good experience that you don't usually get, so just enjoy it.

Great place to stay

If you start your adventure from the West Entrance, I recommend staying in the town of West Yellowstone.

It is located just minutes from the West Yellowstone entrance.

There are also not many hotels, gas stations, restaurants, souvenir shops, etc., but there are enough to stay overnight.

I recommend buying Yellowstone souvenirs and memorabilia in this town.

I wanted to go to the park at night to see the starry sky, but unfortunately it was raining and cloudy that day, so I couldn't go.

However, if the weather is nice, there is a park close to this town, so you will be able to see the starry sky.

Grand Canyon Of The Yellowstone

It is the Grand Canyon, but it is different from the world's most famous world heritage site in Arizona.

I didn't know about this place until I visited there.

I love the Grand Canyon in Arizona and have been there twice.

To be honest, it can't compete with the original Grand Canyon, but it's still a beautiful view.

I looked at it from two viewpoints.

"Inspiration Point"


”red rock point”

These are just a few minutes by car, and you can get to the view point by getting out of the car and walking a little, so I recommend going to both.


Mammoth Hot Springs

This is located in the north area, a 30 minute drive from the North Entrance.

It is divided into Upper Terrace and Terrace Mountain, but they are adjacent so you can visit them together.

You can see pure white and beautiful shelf-shaped limestone there.

I didn't know about this place either, and of course I had no expectations.

That's why it looked even more beautiful.

Of course, I bet it's beautiful even if you come expecting it.


Roosevelt Arch

It's located right in front of the north entrance.

I have seen beautiful pictures of this arch and the starry sky.

If you want to take pictures of it, I think it would be a good idea to stay in one of the hotels near the arch.



I went here without much planning and just wanted to go to Grand Prismatic Spring.

However, there are many other things to see here, and two days was obviously not enough.

However, in the two days I saw many beautiful scenery, I was really satisfied.

I definitely say that YOU SHOULD GO TO THERE!!!
