Yellowstone National Park
The Place: Covering more than 2 million acres, brimming with buffalo and mountain views and hot springs, Yellowstone is a must-visit National Park. But you and millions of others of tourists already know this.
Beat the Crowds: Summertime brings the best weather and the heaviest influx of crowds, so be prepared to share the trails if you chase the warmth. The best months to visit are April and May when the weather is moderate, humidity is low, and a vast majority of the park is open. Not to be overlooked, the winter months, from November to March, are a beautiful time to experience the park, if you can handle the cold.
