Yellowstone Bear World

A very exciting place to visit while in Idaho, is Yellowstone Bear World. It's located just outside of Rexburg, Idaho. Our family makes an annual trip there every summer.

places-to-visit-in-idaho-02; yellowstone bear world While you drive through the park, the animal's are free to roam, which can make for an exciting adventure.

Not only do they have Black Bears and Grizzly Bears, they have Wolves, Deer, Elk, Bison and Mountain Goats.

There are also many other kinds of animals too.

When our kids were young they really enjoyed the petting zoo and amusement rides.

As they got older, the driving tour became their favorite activity. Seeing the animals in their own element.

You can make numerous trips driving through the park if you happen to miss something the first time. When my son was about 7 years old we were making our first visit to Yellowstone Bear World. He didn't realize that the bears were actually contained within a park. He thought they were just free roaming wild animals.

As we were traveling through, pointing out the bears to him, he asked us what the bear's ate. Not knowing for certain, we explained that a person probably fed the bears. Forgetting that 7 year olds often take things very literal, our son began to get highly upset. He sobbed that he couldn't watch what was about to happen.

My husband and I turned to see what he was looking at. It was a park employee making rounds feeding the animals. But our son didn't see that the man was placing food out, he just assumed the man was the bear's meal. He calmed down once he spotted the actual bear food and we explained it a little more clearly. We still tease him about that.

The park is very fun to visit. It's very important to follow all the rules for safety purposes, but you cannot beat it for a great experience for the whole family. The cost is very reasonable. Just make sure that your air-conditioning is working properly in your vehicle, since you must stay inside while doing the drive through. The weather can get quite warm there.

We've found that mornings are often the more active time to see the animals. Late afternoon's you often find the animal's taking naps, without much moving around. You can learn more about Yellowstone Bear Wold by visiting www.yellowstonebearworld.com
