Since the early 1900s, West Yellowstone has provided a tourist-friendly gateway to the geysers of Yellowstone National Park and its resident bison, bears, and elk. No matter what the season, this Rocky Mountain enclave in southwestern Montana is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream, offering snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, ice fishing and dog sledding in winter; trout fishing in fall; birding, boating, biking and hiking in spring; and summer parades and rodeos.
West Yellowstone has a variety of shopping and dining options including family-run restaurants, cafes, and bistros. Enjoy the regional specialties of trout, elk and bison or traditional Western cuisine. Be sure to top it off with a Montana huckleberry treat! The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center is a Wildlife Park and Educational Facility, providing all visitors to Yellowstone with the opportunity to find out all about grizzlies and gray wolves.
