Recent travels through Yellowstone National Park has given me much more blogging material. Im excited to share 5 things to to in Yellowstone National Park. Keep an eye out for more posts related to this post.
I found a lot of things to do while visiting and still only saw a fraction of the park. Here are a few things I enjoyed and may spark an interest in yourself to visit and see if you can 5 things to do in Yellowstone, or even more!
It’s also pretty bad ass to think that you are on top of a massive volcano that, if it erupts fully, could be quite catastrophic.
#1 Visit Old Faithful
Why? Because it is one of the main attractions at Yellowstone, and you just gotta see it. Its also fun to watch as the geyser is getting ready to erupt, it slowly starts steaming and spurting out small amounts of water, then all of a sudden it blasts off sky-high! Go to the Yellowstone Lodge to see Old Faithful.
#2 Hike to the Grand Prismatic Spring Overlook
The grand Prismatic Spring is another awesome geothermal attraction to see at Yellowstone. The microbes in the water make the colors so beautiful and colorful.
This park is unreal, and it seams as if no matter how many geysers we looked at they were all a different color. Take the Fairy Falls Trailhead to see the geyser from above.

#3 Explore the inside of Yellowstone Lodge
The Yellowstone Lodge is a work of art and so beautiful and charming. There are gift shops, restaurants, and hotel rooms you can stay in here. The entire place is made of wood and is quite old.
I can’t explain it but I couldn’t stop looking up from the ground at the amazing architecture inside. You notice more and more unique things inside the longer you look around.
#4 Hike to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone Viewpoint
I hiked the Red Rock Trail to get down to a great lookout to see the waterfalls in the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. You can find this trail near the North Rim Drive. Being that I live in the Grand Canyon State, I have seen the Grand Canyon several times and unfortunately Yellowstone’s Grand Canyon doesn’t compare in size, but makes up for it in beauty!

#5 Explore around Mammoth Hot Springs
The Mammoth Hot Springs area in the national park is fueled with flowing geysers. They all are different colors. There are many trails running through all the different springs that you can walk around and check out. There is also a decent little town near the hot springs with shops, restaurants, hotels and campgrounds nearby.
Hopefully this will get your travel juices flowing and make you want to get out there and experience at least 5 things in Yellowstone National Park. Seeing pictures like these ones, is what got me wanting to go to Yellowstone for the longest time. I’m glad I finally made it there!
