This is one of my absolute favorite places in the world. There is a reason it is called "Artist Point". On any given day in summer, you can see artists painting here. It is stunningly beautiful and a must see when you are in Yellowstone. A great place to relax and think!

I don't think there is one place inside Yellowstone that you can pin point as the best thing to see. But I can say that Artist Points was amazing to see in my opinion

This is an awesome viewing spot of the lower falls. There are two viewing levels and one is wheelchair accessible. This is a fantastic spot to take photos of the canyon and falls.

I entered the park through the south gate and with my senior pass it was free. You get a map as you enter the gate with all the lookout sites clearly shown. In my view Artist Point (view of the Upper and Lower Falls in the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone) is the most spectacular non-geothermal feature in Yellowstone. There are... More

Artists point is a very short walk from the parking lot, and well worth it for the beautiful view. Be prepared to be patient to get to the front of the crowd to take your photos though - it's a popular tourist spot in the park (and you will quickly see why). Total parking to point and back to the... More

This is a beautiful view, but be careful. True story: a man on his honeymoon asked his bride to back up a step for a better photo - and she did. Enjoy the view and worth the drive around the back side of the falls. Stop at Uncle Tom's trail.

It has a really gorgeous view, while the colors you see also depends on time of day and weather. On weekends there could also be a LOT of people.

We thought this was one of the most spectacular views within Yellowstone. Located in the Canyon Area (just south of Canyon Village), when traveling north on Grand Loop Road, make a right over Chittenden Bridge and follow South Rim Drive to the very end. You will pass Uncle Tom's Point on the left. There is a parking lot and restrooms... More

This is another one of the MUST STOPS in YSNP. It's a great place to see the Canyon and a beautiful waterfall.

It is difficult to believe that something this surreal exists in such accessible nature. The colors are spectacular, a dream for a photographer.
