    There are tons of interesting things to see in the park.

    Here is a trip planner

    Be sure to see the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. It's really impressive.

    The Norris Geyser Basin in the north west section of the park has the most spectacular geysers.

    You'll need to rent a car to get around. The park is enormous.

    Stay in West Yellowstone, MT. It's at the western entrance to the park and close to the most visited attractions, like the geyser fields. There are dozens of motels right at the entrance.

    visit old faithful (geyser), it's really about the only cool thing in the whole park in my opinion aside from some other medium high geysers. Rent a car & drive from new york, you'll have more fun on the trip than in the park anyway.

    -that's right give me a thumbs down for an opinion.

So except you have an exceedingly astonishing day it does not get boiling warm or something. i will remember seeing some pregnant women human beings strolling around while i replaced into final there. there is plenty to be certain in Yellowstone without needing to exert your self to lots, so i might propose heading that way. don't be afraid to take a seat down and relax if mandatory although!
