About Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park is the oldest national park in the USA and one of the world’s most famous parks. Tourists come from all over the planet to step inside this national treasure.

When visiting Yellowstone, you can’t miss seeing the largest hot spring in the USA, the Grand Prismatic Spring. This massive spring is a photographer’s dream, with unique swirling colors unlike anywhere else.

Next, you must wait to see Old Faithful erupt (which happens about every 90 minutes), then continue exploring the Upper Geyser Basin.

Afterward, you can spend days exploring the other popular attractions in the park, such as Morning Glory Pool, the Lamar Valley, Yellowstone Canyon, Mammoth Hot Springs, and more.

There is so much to see in Yellowstone that you will need to prioritize your wish list depending on how much time you can spend. Once you leave, you will likely start planning your next trip to Yellowstone right away!
