It’s the world’s first national park. It’s Yellowstone National Park. Find out why you should go there!
#1.The Hot Springs
Did you know that 60% of the world’s hot springs and geysers are inside Yellowstone? That’s how many there are. The most photographed thermal feature in the park is the Grand Prismatic Hot Spring. It’s bigger than a football field and its size makes it the third largest spring in the entire world. But as much as the size is impressive, the bright colors are stunning. The spring is blue in the middle with layers of orange, yellow and green around it.
Among all the geysers there is one that stands out a little bit extra. That’s the Old Faithful Geyser. The name is very suitable, because you can count on that it will put on a show. Its intervals typically range from around one to two hours. If you missed an eruption, the next one shouldn’t be too far away.
#3. To feel like you’re in a painting
There’s much to adore in Yellowstone. In the tough competition the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone stands out as a place you really need to experience. It´s so visually attractive that you will feel like you´re in a painting.

#4. The Bison encounters
Bisons roam around freely in Yellowstone. The first time you see them is a special feeling. Find a nice viewing point in Lamar Valley and watch them stampede below you. Just make sure that you plan your time wisely when you are in bison areas. Bison jams occur all the time and when they decide to stop blocking traffic is up to them!
#5. How huge it is
In size Yellowstone National Park is larger than the states Rhode Island and Delaware. It’s so big that one day isn’t nearly enough to cover the park. Its largeness makes it possible for you to find peace in the park even though it’s drawing large crowds of tourists each year.
