• Pingback: Visiting Yellowstone with Kids - 8 Tips - Coffee With Us 3()

  • Great post. This is on my list of places to travel one day and I can’t wait to go. I need to know the real deal when visiting places so I will have this pinned and ready.

  • We visited Yellowstone six years ago and loved it!! The kids loved being able to see the wildlife and Old Faithful! Made me nervous to see how close some people felt they needed to be to the wildlife!

  • I have never been to Yellowstone. i have family that has been there, but it’s been years. Looks and sounds like a great place to visit. We love the outdoors so I’m really hoping that we’re able to plan a trip there someday.

    This is a really great post! I’ve never been to Yellowstone before (or any national park – I need to remedy that!) and these tips will be really useful for when we do go. It looks like a beautiful place to visit!

    Great tips. I have never been but it is on our family trip list for sure. Yellow stone has been in the news a lot for people being really stupid! It is sad, I hope people start using their brains so the space doesnt get shut down.

  • The tip about the caffeine was amazing. I never would have thought about the caffeine affecting the body at the elevation. And I never leave home without gallons of water!

  • Great tips! Thanks so much for sharing. I didn’t realize
    that the change in altitude made it easier for you to get sun-burned. And you’d
    think the animal warning wouldn’t be necessary, but these days you can’t put
    much past anyone.

  • I went to Yellowstone ages ago, when I was a child…and consequently hardly remember it! I would love to take the kids there one day as they are nature and animal lovers and would be in absolutely awe there!

    Bringing own food during travel is nothing new for backpackers who are in budget. It’s okay to try the local food but if it’s super expensive and not delicious, it’s not worth a single try. In any case, how expensive is it really?

    I went to Yellowstone a few times as a child. We drove from NYC to Cali a few times to visit my grandparents. I loved it and always wanted to visit with my own kids. It just never happened. It looks as beautiful as I remember it. I hope I can arrange to bring my family there sometime soon! Diane Sullivan (FB)>
