Steamboat Geyser In Wyoming Was Named One Of The Most Stunning Lesser-Known Places In The U.S

Editor’s Note: Most attractions in Wyoming are temporarily shuttered due to the threat of COVID-19. Please consider adding the below to your calendar on a future date, when it’s safe to gather and celebrate with friends and family once more.

The most famous geyser in the world, Old Faithful, draws thousands of visitors each day to Yellowstone National Park. People stay nearby just for a chance to watch her erupt, and she truly puts on a show once every hour-and-a-half or so! However, if you’re looking for a geyser that’s worth a view without the massive crowds, check out Steamboat Geyser. The Washington Post recently pointed out that it’s one of the most underrated thermal features in the world.
