My girlfriend and I are planning to go to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and had a few questions if anyone can help us!
What's the best place to fly (from Boston) into, if we want to minimize both flight price and driving distance to Yellowstone? I heard someone say that it's best to fly into Salt Lake City, as both flights and car rentals will be cheaper. Here's a quick breakdown of a few options we're considering, all based on the same travel dates and from the airport to the center of Yellowstone:
- Salt Lake City: ~$500, 5 hour drive, ~$300 car rental
- Billings: ~$500, 3 hour drive, ~$200 car rental
- Cody: ~$600, 2 hour drive, ~$600 car rental
- Bozeman: ~$500, 2 hour drive, ~$650 car rental
...so it really seems like Billings is the obvious choice. Am I missing something here?
