It’s enough to make any traveler sigh with contentment. But while you’re busy enjoying those views from your hotel and dining fine at night, it’s important to have enough to do during the day as well, especially if you’re entertaining a young crew.

Wildlife Tour

Yellowstone and surrounding areas offer amazing views of stunning wildlife. Take a gander at the bison that used to populate such large swaths of the North American continent. Look for elk and antelope on the rolling plains. And peer into the sky for the bald eagles, hawks and falcons that soar so majestically from tree to crag.

Even better, you can travel in style in the comfort of a Bigfoot van, which can accommodate up to 12 people for big family groups. Just don’t forget your camera!
