4 days in Yellowstone and Grand Teton

We are semi-retired couple in late 50's, love to see beautiful scenery and take lots of pictures. We are pretty much city folks, can do mild walking, but not serious hiking.

Got some time off this fall, and has booked a trip to Canada and USA. Squeezed in only 4 days to cover these massive and beautiful parks. Debating 1 night in Jackson Hole, 3 nights in West Yellowstone, versus 2 each. Any suggestions? Will fly out from Bozman to Vegas on 5th day morning. Really need some expert advice on best use of our time.

Many thanks.

Exactly when are you coming to the area? You will need reservations in the park or just outside the park at West Yellowstone for YNP and can stay in Jackson for GTNP. Some of the park lodging, etc. will begin to close down by mid-Sept. YNP is huge- the size of a small state. Here is a website for must sees. Also check out the NPS website for YNP. I would spend 3 days in YNP and 1 in GTNP.

Per your other posts..seems you will be in YS Sept 28-Oct 2.

I would spend 3 nights in YS and 1 in Jackson.

If you fly into Jackson, then spend that night inside Teton NP if you can. Look for lodging at Colter Bay Cabins, Lake Yellowstone Lodge or Signal Mountain Lodge.

Maybe 2 nights in West YS and then one night in Gardiner MT.
