Yellowstone In 2020

Yellowstone In 2020

Yellowstone is certainly one of the most heavily visited national parks in the the Western U.S. with over 4 million tourists coming each year from 2015 through 2019.

But thanks the coronavirus, visitation may drop off considerably this year especially since park lodging and dining may be quite limited.

Even in a normal year, waiting until late April or May to book lodging could result in you discovering that there is “no room at the inn.”

With luck, a year from now a vaccine against the virus will be widely available so putting off a trip to Yellowstone until 2021 might be prudent.

In the meantime, this short film shows the importance of Yellowstone not only to Americans but to citizens of the world.
