14 days-Bryce, yellow stone Tetons or crater moon yellowstone tetons

Jump to last reply

Can anyone give me an opinion? We are flying into Salt Lake City July 22 and leaving on August 6th. We have 2 kids 12 and 14. We generally stay in nice but not overly expensive hotel accommodations. we do like to take small hikes, light whitewater rafting, animal watching and love beautiful scenery, Son likes this but needs his souvenir shops also, and husband needs restaurants. We have done road trips in alaska, pacific northwest, glacier/waterton/canmore/banff so they can handle long trips but not too many days in a row.
I am thinking of two itineraries:

Day 1 fly into salt lake
2- SLC
3 Drive to Bryce
4 Bryce
5Bryce /area
6. SLC
7. Craters of the moon, Idaho. stay idaho falls
8. West YEllowstone
9. yellowstone
10 yellowstone
11 Tetons(stay Teton Village or Jackson Hole)
12 Tetons
13. Tetons
14 Drive Back to SLC
15 Fly home


The other one was
1-Fly into SAlt lake
2 SLC
3. Craters of the moon stay Idaho falls
4 West Yellowstone
5. Yellowstone
6. yellowstone
7. Yellowstonre
8. Yellowstone
9,Tetons
10Tetons
11Tetons
12Tetons
13.SLC or could spend extra day in tetons/ yellowstone
14SLC
15 home.

Obviously one entails more driving than the other and shorter stays which means more packing and unpacking,but keeps interest level high.

The other would be more relaxing and give us more time to really explore. Do you think 4 days at yellowstone is enough? which two areas would you recommend staying at in yellowstone. I am really anxious to book acommodations as I feel itis beginning to get late.
