West Yellowstone, Montana

Elevation: 6667 FT

Population: 1502

County: Gallatin

All three of Montana's gateway towns are hubs for outdoor adventure, but the picturesque all-American small town of West Yellowstone also packs a lot of personality within its borders. "West," as it's affectionately known, has become a mecca of lodging options from well-known hotels to private cabins, plus coffee shops, caf├ęs, a taqueria housed in an old school bus, gift shops, fine dining and even a giant-screen theater. This scenic, bustling town offers plenty of entertainment as well as park tours including snowcoach tours in the winter months. In the summer, water sports are a go. Kayaks and stand-up paddleboards are often spotted on Hebgen and Quake lakes. Fly-fishing here is an angler's dream all year long. The beautiful Madison and Gallatin rivers gift unrivaled blue-ribbon trout fishing: West Yellowstone is the heart of fly-fishing in the Rockies, after all.


If you find yourself visiting June through August, make sure to experience the Wild West Yellowstone Rodeo for some authentic Wild West flavor. The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, which is open 365 days a year, is home to several grizzly bears, two packs of wolves, birds and the wonderful Keep Kids program. If you're interested in learning about the park's history, the Yellowstone Historic Center is a must see. For the more adventurous, the Yellowstone Aerial Adventures ropes and zip line will test your skills!
