on break and explore the mountains and hiking trails. The best time to visit Yellowstone is usually in late spring. Depending on what you want to do, you may prefer visiting in the early fall or the late summer. During the winter and early spring, Yellowstone often blocks off some trails and other attractions because of the weather. If you visit in September or October, you'll still avoid the crowds but find that most attractions are open to the public.
Things to Do in the Park
The obvious reason most people buy a West Yellowstone timeshare is because they want to explore the nearby Yellowstone National Park. Old Faithful is something you will definitely want to see. This geyser goes off at regular intervals. The Grand Prismatic Spring is another popular park attraction as is the Yellowstone Caldera, which is one of the nation's only active volcanoes. If you bring fishing gear from home, Yellowstone Lake is a good place to visit because it's stocked with trout and other types of fish. The park also boasts a number of hiking trails.

You can head over to the IMAX Theater to see films on the big screen and watch live shows at the Playmill Theater. The West Yellowstone Visitors' Center is the best place to go to find out about all the fun things close to your West Yellowstone timeshare and in the surrounding region.
