    Where stay

    The best way to answer this question is to decide how much time you have and what you want to see more of. If you are planning on visiting Yellowstone National Park for just a few days West Yellowstone it would be a good starting point. If you want to have a full park experience then maybe stay at Old faithful it would be a good choice. If you want to see mainly wildlife then we recommend the Northeast entrance and a short trip to the lamar valley. The south entrance is a great option if you have more time and want to visit the Grand Teton National Park. The north entrance is home to the park and has information on its history.
