Roadtrip with 2-kids: VancouverBC -Yellowstone-Los Angeles

Jump to last reply

I will be travelling/driving alone with my two kids (DS 8 yo, DD 6 yo). Starting from Tsawwassen BC to Yellowstone to (destination/home) Los Angeles. This is not our first roadtrip so kids are used to being in car 2-3 hrs. However, this is a first as a solo driver & first trip to explore YNP. I plan to drive 6-8 hrs a day & purchasing a 12v cooler for drinks & snacks on the road to maximize our trip.

Already have reservations for 2-nights in Yellowstone (Lake Village), 2-nights outside the park in West Yellowstone. The later being cheaper, & would like to know if staying within the park may not be necessary.

Are the park tours are worthwhile? I would like to do the Roosevelt /Old West Dinner cookout (5pm-?pm)? Has anyone done the Twilight on the Firehole(645-9pm) tour? My concern is driving within the park at night as the tours ending at night & having to drive back to our lodging.

Below is our early August itinerary and would appreciate advice/suggestions. Thank you!

Day 1 – depart Tsawwassen drive to Seattle, then to Spokane. Overnight in Spokane.
Day 2 – depart Spokane drive to Bozeman. Overnight Bozeman. Any suggested stopovers along the way?
Day 3 – depart Bozeman to Yellowstone. Explore N Yellowstone. Overnight within park - Lake Yellowstone.
Day 4 – Yellowstone. Overnight within park - Lake Yellowstone. Should I consider doing a tour or explore park on our own? I might need the break from all the driving.
Day 5 – Yellowstone. Overnight West Yellowstone
Day 6 – Yellowstone. Overnight West Yellowstone.
Day 7 – depart West Yellowstone drive to Salt Lake City. Overnight SLC.
Day 8 – depart SLC drive LA.
