The ultimate South Dakota and Wyoming family holiday visits Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park and Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Along the way, Tauck takes you behind the scenes with filmed narratives by National Park experts who share stories of the visionaries who shaped the preservation of the national parks. The first pioneers had to raft down wild rivers, just like your family when you explore the Snake River. You’ll look for beaver, elk, bison and more as you travel to Yellowstone National Park, staying at a lodge steps away from where the Old Faithful geyser shoots its plume of steam skyward every hour. Nothing says Wild West like Buffalo Bill, and your family will learn more about him when you spend the night in historic Cody. Live the life of a cowboy by day at the TA Guest Ranch in Wyoming and by night with a stay at The Ranch at Ucross. Everything is larger than life in the West, especially when you visit Crazy Horse Memorial and Mount Rushmore, where giant faces of four former presidents are sculpted in stone.
Scenic float trip on the Snake River with a guide who helps spot river otters, eagles, beaver, elk or even a moose; playing cowboy for a day at a dude ranch. VOLUME 8 2017
