4 Must Sees in Yellowstone National Park

4 Must Sees in Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park is the oldest and arguably best national park in all of the US. We were lucky enough to visit the park for almost 6 weeks and had a really hard time leaving at the end of our trip. There are so many must-sees in Yellowstone, you could probably spend a lifetime there and see them all.

Here are some of the fantastic sights to see while visiting this beautiful park:

Old Faithful

This is the most recognizable geyser in the world and is a must visit when heading to Yellowstone. Here you can walk through the visitor center to get the history of the geyser and why it plays such an important role in the park. You can also find eruption times for Old Faithful, which are accurate within 10 minutes of the eruption, which is why it’s called Old Faithful. There is plenty of seating around the geyser, so you’re guaranteed to get a good view. If you’re up for some adventure, there are hiking trails behind the geyser where you can do a bit of a climb for an aerial view of the eruption.

The Old Faithful Inn is also a great place to stop for a rest and to grab some food and a cold drink after a long day of sightseeing.

Grand Prismatic

The Grand Prismatic is a collection of thermal features that show some of the most beautiful colors I’ve ever seen. It looks more like an artist’s canvas than a thermal pool. There is a boardwalk that winds through the geyser basin so you can get up close to the beauty. It is definitely a picturesque scene and should be near the top of your list when in Yellowstone.

Mammoth Hot Springs

The Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces are some of the coolest looking features in all of the park. They look almost like terrain from another planet. The levels of the terrace range from pitch white to pink to deep red and are so level and straight, they look like they were precision cut with lasers. Mammoth is at the north end of the park and very near the north entrance. At the entrance, you will find the Roosevelt Arch. I’d definitely recommend visiting the arch dedicated to Teddy Roosevelt.

Grand Canyon

Yellowstone’s Grand Canyon offers great views and great hiking. It’s so scenic that there’s even a place called Artist Point. We loved visiting both the upper and lower falls which offers 2 totally different perspectives of the same waterfall. The hike down to the lower falls is basically 300 stairs straight down, so be sure you have it in you to make it back up.
