Wildlife Areas Nature Nightlife
The town of West Yellowstone has served as a gateway to Yellowstone National Park since the early 1900s. Although a very small community lives here permanently, around 3.5 million people visit the town each year. Bordered by national forest on three sides, the town has almost limitless options for outdoor activities. Hiking, fly-fishing, rafting, and biking are all popular activities in the warmer months, and when the snow falls locals and visitors on vacation switch to snowmobiling, sledding, and skiing. When you’re not adventuring, you can enjoy the town’s laid-back feel, quaint stores, and hearty dining options. When using our United States trip itinerary planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
