West Yellowstone Tourism: Best of West Yellowstone
West Yellowstone might be a small town, but that doesn't mean it isn't a fabulous place for a family holiday. Surrounded by mountains and Yellowstone National Park, there is so much for both kids and adults to do. West Yellowstone gets its name because the western entrance to Yellowstone National Park is located in the town. Using that entrance takes you right to Old Faithful, the most famous geyser in the world. You can also hike there in the spring and summer and cross country ski the same trails in the winter.
There is no season that closes West Yellowstone. In the warm months you can fish, bird watch, or hike the trails. Horseback riding is so much fun in the open country. For the more adventurous soul there is white water rafting. Mountain biking is a challenging activity for the physically fit. And, of course, there is golf at the Island Park Village Resort.
