My partner and I just decide to go visit Yellowstone for 7 days landing June 19th (Hope the weather will be nice). After reading many many post I almost have our itinerary in order but I need some help and advice. Btw we do not mind doing easy to medium trails and hikes but we mainly like to enjoy nature and history.
After checking prices landing in Bozeman from Orlando, FL works best for us (car rental is cheaper). I haven't bought the airline tickets but we were wondering how soon do I need to buy them (they might go down early next year?)
Day 1: Land in Bozeman and drive to the Old Faithful Inn (staying 2 nights, I booked it online last night West Wing)
Day 2: Old Faithful Inn we will do the top attractions in the area.
Day 3: Drive down to Jackson Hole and stay 1 night ( Cowboy Village Resort looks nice). I think one night stay will give us time to see Grand Teton NP and the area.
Day 4: Driving up to the Canyon area. We were thinking staying somewhere near the Canyon to spend time there and also visit the Lamar Valley. I was wondering if we stayed in Gardiner this day it will be a far drive to do both. My partner is more of a hotel guy and after reading the reviews, the accommodations in that area seems very rustic. what do you guys recommend? Should we stay in the Canyon one night?
Day 5: Staying in Gardiner Guesthouse B&B for two nights to check the main attractions in the area and it would be closer to the airport
Day 6: Gardiner Guesthouse B&B
Day 7: Flying out late morning
Looking at goggle maps the driving distance between places doesn't look bad (time wise), are those accurate? I am afraid we might run out of time to see some o the sights.
I stayed up until 4am trying to put this together but since we have never been in that area is kind of hard. Any input/advice will be greatly appreciate it. Once I have all these down the second part of the planning begins...places to eat and what to pack LOL
