My husband and I really enjoyed seeing Old Faithful, the food and drinks at Old Faithful Inn, and The Visitors Center are recommended as well.

There are benches and s boardwalk that keep visitors s safe distance from the geyser. Bring your camera and after it erupts visit the other steam and boiling pots that surround Old Faithful. Ask a park ranger for the time it goes off.

We watched Old Faithful spout twice. The second eruption was higher and lasted longer. It was wonderful to behold.

Hike around the geyser. Hike up the trial to observation point to see the geyser from above. Visitor center had very helpful guides. Request maps and ask for their input.

If you want a garunteed eruption at set times. This is the place to go. Gets very crowded, so don't expect a intimate view. Still, this is a must do
