West Yellowstone

Trip Planner USA  /  Montana  /  West Yellowstone
(4.4/5 based on 7,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: wildlife areas, nightlife, nature
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.

Where to stay

West Yellowstone provides many options for accommodations to suit its different visitors on vacation. A rustic cabin nestled into the forest is a cozy place to relax after a day in the great outdoors, while a downtown hotel means all the town’s attractions are within easy walking distance. For an authentic taste of the Wild West, consider staying at one of the converted cattle ranches in the surrounding area. Many boast scenic grounds with opportunities to fish and ride horses.
