An exceptionally diverse landscape and varied wildlife have made Yellowstone National Park one of America's most popular parks.
Get outdoors at Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and Old Faithful. You'll discover tucked-away gems like West Thumb Geyser Basin and Grand Loop Road. And it doesn't end there: take in the natural beauty of Grand Prismatic Spring, identify plant and animal life at Hayden Valley, take in the dramatic natural features at Biscuit Basin, and cruise along Lamar Valley.

To see ratings, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Yellowstone National Park road trip site.

Atlanta to Yellowstone National Park is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST) is minus 2 hours. Traveling from Atlanta in May, things will get colder in Yellowstone National Park: highs are around °F and lows about °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Denver.

Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
Get outdoors at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Lookout Mountain. Do some cultural sightseeing at Benson Park Sculpture Garden and Argo Mill and Tunnel. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Arapahoe Basin (in Keystone), River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs) and Hotel de Paris Museum (in Georgetown). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, view the masterpieces at Denver Botanic Gardens, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, and shop like a local with Images of Rocky Mountain National Park.
