Planning our first trip to Yellowstone was a breeze with this handy guide. We discovered places that most people at the park were never aware of, or never knew how to find. Frommer pointed out hard to reach places or places that were not well marked - such as the Lookout at Old Faithful, Uncle Tom's Trail at the Canyon. We definitely will not plan another trip without consulting a Frommer's guide first.

Compact and useful, but the author is overly snarky and provides minimal information on popular attractions he deems unworthy.

This compact book holds so much information. It is very easy to use, and it gives great travel tips. It includes all the information anyone could ever imagine needing to know before and during your trip. It not only hits the hilights, but goes in detailed descriptions of the not so travelled areas of the parks.
