Yellowstone National Park
America's first national park (an idea that spread worldwide) sits atop a volcanic hotspot. Yellowstone National Park features dramatic canyons, alpine rivers, lush forests, hot springs and gushing geysers. It is also home to many species including grizzly bears, wolves, bison, elk and antelope. Of course make sure you check out Old Faithful, the geyser Yellowstone is known for but also go see Grand Prismatic spring, the park's largest hot spring. Be prepared for large crowds unless you plan to visit in winter.
Grand Teton National Park
Rising more than 7000ft above the valley of Jackson Hole, the Teton Range dominates the park skyline. The park is rich with amazing wildlife, pristine lakes and alpine terrain. You can explore 200 miles of hiking trails, test out your mountaineering skills or float down the Snake River. Long snowy and bitterly cold winters lasting typically from November to may make the park an unforgiving place so plan your trip accordingly
Devils Tower National Monument
An astounding geologic feature that protrudes out of the rolling prairie surrounding the Black Hills, Devil's Tower rises dramatically 1,267 feet above the surrounding terrain and the summit is 5,114 feet above sea level. This one of a kind natural wonder is very popular among the climbing community. The site is considered sacred to the Lakota and other local tribes who have a connection to the area.
Once home to fur trappers and explorers, Jackson Hole is cowboy and cosmopolitan. Bordered by the jagged peaks of the Tetons, this place is now home to upscale ski resorts, rustic campsites and dude ranches. Down town you will find old west shop fronts mixed with contemporary architecture. This is a great place to base yourself for other nearby attractions which include Teton National Park, the National Elk Refuge and the Jackson Hole Ski Resort.
