Are you planning to visit Yellowstone for the first time and need some inspiration for the best things to do in Yellowstone National Park? Then you’ve come to the right place.

Yellowstone is one of the best National Parks in the USA we have visited so far, and we certainly felt it lived up to the hype.

Things to Do in Yellowstone National Park

By the way, this is not in any order of best places to see in Yellowstone National Park, as they’re all just so awesome.

Check Out Mammoth Hot Springs

Mammoth Hot Springs is a large complex of springs created over thousands of years. Hot water from the springs cooled and deposited calcium carbonate, leaving behind dramatic bleached white hues of frozen cascading terraced pools.

Soak in the Boiling River

It runs alongside and spills into the Gardner River. There are small areas on the edge of the river where the water is not boiling as it mixes with the very cold water of the river.

Explore Hayden Valley

Wolves, elks, coyotes, and the occasional grizzly bear frequent the area to graze, drink, and feed. We only saw bison, but in the distance once were wolves.

See the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone National Park

The Yellowstone River runs through here, plunging 109 feet at the Upper Falls and then another 308 feet at the spectacular Lower Falls down into the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.

Check Out The Mud Volcanos

This area of muddy hot springs and fumaroles are located near one of the Yellowstone Volcano’s vents. You will see the steam rising from the road as you drive through here.
