Besides being the oldest National Park in the world, Yellowstone is also among the largest at 2+ million acres. And while it is technically possible to drive through the park in a single day, I wouldn't recommend spending less than 2 or 3 days in this park. There is really so much to do and see; fly fishing the Madison River, hiking among the travertine terraces of Mammoth Hot Springs, photographing the many, many geysers near Old Faithful, watching the wildlife in Lamar Valley and Hayden Valley, viewing the water falls in the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. This list could go on and on. If you are going to travel all the way to Yellowstone, it's worth spending as much time there as you can. It is truly a magical place. On your return, let us know how your trip went!

You should try to see Yellowstone in the winter. 5 days (on snowcoach or snowmobile) will give you an appreciation of the park's unique beauty and power unmatched by any summer visit! I'm sure this site can give you some ideas as to how to plan that trip, but you can always call Xanterra Parks and Resorts at the park and they'll tell you what you need to know.

I would leave at least four days. There are four/five major areas of the park, and each area could easily take a day, especially if you want to hike around and do programs. The areas would include: Old Faithful Area, Lake Area, Canyon Area, and Mammoth Area. Old Faithful: waterfalls, lots of geothermal features, be sure to go to the Inn and check it out (it's an amazing building) Yellowstone Lake: boating, hiking, some cool little towns, and some geothermal stuff Canyon: prime wildlife viewing at Hayden Valley and Lamar Valley (we got caught in the middle of a buffalo herd at the beautiful lamar valley!), waterfalls (mostly drive-up). Mammoth: I didn't really do much here except go to the hot springs (which you MUST see, especially at sunset), but there were some neat-sounding hikes like Beaver Ponds. Yellowstone is SUCH an adventure! have a blast! Four days will be a whirlwind, so I would recommend five or more. morethanaweekend.com
