1wk Yellowstone July 2013 - Itinerary Help Please

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip for July 2013 with our son (will be 3.5yrs next summer) for about a week and would love some advice. The main reason for the trip is a family reunion in Livingston, MT (Fri/Sat/Sun) at the end of our trip. We plan to fly into & out of Bozeman the Saturday beforehand - so we'll have Sat-Thurs (6nts) to travel on our own before the reunion. We've never been to Yellowstone and figure this is a great chance to visit. We'd love to see the "highlights" and wildlife, and hopefully keep things relatively low key (no more than 2hrs/day in the car if possible). We'd like clean basic accommodations on the lower price end, but would prefer our own bathroom if possible.

We had been thinking about 2-3nts in West Yellowstone and 2-3nts in Jackson, but are a little worried that this might be too much? Better to stay in the park (although things already look booked up...?)

Any suggestions/advice on traveling, where to stay, what to see, where to eat would all be greatly appreciated.
