Take the lake cruise from the marina. The captain and co-captain are not only very informative, but also very funny.

With all of the wonders available to view in Yellowstone, I wouldn't spend too much time here. Take a look as you go past, admire the beauty, but move on to some of the other highlights.

You can view this lake from Fish Bridge and also from West Thumb Geyser basin. At the Fish Bridge, you can walk down to the lake to wade in the water.

We rented a boat and spend the day motoring around the lake and island. We even casted our fishing lines into the lake for fun. The lake is beautiful and very big.

They do run in September even in October but nothing compared to early June
Boat ride sounds a great idea. Are there numerous companies? Which di you select? Where are they located on the lake? What is the charge per adult? Thank you

Hi, need advice from someone who has visited Yellowstone National and knows the area over all really well. I am a 28 year old guy taking my parents currently in their 60s. Please advise sites which are friendly for elderly people since my parents won't be able to do hiking or walk too long on steep trails. These are the list of places I have chosen to visit with my parent since we will mostly driving around with our car: Please tell me if any of these spot requires too much walking or has steep trail?
