Yellowstone Tourist Attraction

Posted by Worldouristattractions On 02:17 No comments

Whilst the endless tourist attractions within the Yellowstone National Park do rather dominate the tourism scene throughout Montana, the town of West Yellowstone does contain its very own sights. Attractions in the town include the IMAX Theater on South Canyon Street, the Bear's Den Cinema on Electric Street, and the historic Playmill Theater on Madison Avenue, where regular musical productions are staged.

Very near to the town is Hebgen Lake, which is located on the northern side of Yellowstone Airport and affords some truly spectacular natural scenery. Tourists will find even more attractions within Henry's Lake State Park, which is on the westerly outskirts of town and just a matter of minutes away.

The summer months tend to be the busiest, with visitors from West Yellowstone coming to Hebgen Lake to boat, sail, fish, hike and camp, while in the snowy winter months, the area become a hotspot for snowmobiling. In the summer of 1959, a major earthquake (7.3 on the Richter scale) took place here, causing a landslide to dam the Madison River. This seismic activity subsequently created the adjacent 'Quake Lake', which is equally appealing and lies within the Gallatin National Forest.
