Congrats on your honeymoon—hopefully, you and your partner have a wonderful trip! The best route to Yellowstone National Park from Salt Lake City will take you on the following roads:
  • Start by getting on I-15 N
  • Follow I-15 N to US-20 E in Idaho Falls (take exit 119)
  • Follow US-20 E to reach the West Entrance of Yellowstone National Park
Be prepared for some of your route to involve toll roads. The route through Idaho is the fastest at approximately five hours. If you prefer to drive to the South Entrance in Wyoming, you’ll be on the road for at least six and a half hours.
Whichever route you take, make sure you and your partner plan for breaks along the way! Here are a few places you can find relatively close to the route up to Yellowstone National Park:
  • Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center
  • Grand Prismatic Spring
  • Norris Geyser Basin
  • Lagoon Amusement Park
  • Lava Hot Springs Foundation World Famous Hot Springs
And don’t forget to update your insurance before heading out on your grand adventure! Adding towing and labor coverage can save you time and money if your car breaks down on the highway. Using the Jerry app is a quick and easy way to find the best rates on the coverage you need, saving you an average of $800+ a year!
