We are looking to plan a trip to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons summer 2011. There is so much info on yellowstone, it is hard to know where to start. We will take some time , at least 10 days. We would be open to most suggestions. We would obviously want to catch the main draws like Old Faithful and wildlife, but would be open to other educational and adventurous opportunities like possibly kayaking, hiking, hot springs, a fun swimming hole? Many questions?
1) is it best to move locations or stay in one spot and drive. (park seems large for that.. hate to waste time in a car
2) economical lodgings.. would be open to luxury campling. We will fly and do not want to spend a fortune on luggage. Are there places with kitchens ?
3) are their guided tours or ranger led programs? How do I learn about these
My kids are energetic and used to on the go vacations. However, a little balance is welcome.
Thanks for any ideas
