Summer is just around the corner, and you might be thinking about fun trip ideas.
Not too far from our headquarters is the beautiful Yellowstone National Park. While the majority of the park space is in Wyoming, it also extends into Montana and Idaho.
Yellowstone National Park is filled with several exciting attractions and activities that make any vacation memorable. It is home to Old Faithful, the world’s largest and most famous geyser, and to hundreds of colorful hot springs. It is also home to more wild animals than almost anywhere else in the United States. Animals you might find roaming their natural habitat at Yellowstone include grizzly bears, grey wolves, bald and golden eagles, trumpeter swans, and moose. The world’s largest bison herd can also be found at Yellowstone. You can go hiking and camping, observe glorious waterfalls, and immerse yourself in Native American culture. Yellowstone also has many paleontological sites where you can hunt for rocks, fossils, and dinosaurs.
And if all of this isn’t cool enough, Yellowstone is also home to The Canyons Lodge & Cabins, one of the nation’s biggest modular hotel projects. Scheduled to be completed this summer, the hotel will have 410 guest rooms. The modular construction will allow The Canyons to meet seasonal challenges, reduce its labor costs, reduce room noise, and achieve LEED Silver certification. The Canyons will consist of five buildings with a total of 250 53-foot long modules, or about 50 modules per lodge. Each building will have between 73 and 87 rooms. Construction of the first three buildings took only 6 months; it would have taken 30 months with traditional construction.
The construction of The Canyons is part of a greater trend of an increased interest in modular hotel construction, likely a response to the limited supply of available hotel rooms in the US.
A stay at The Canyons could help make your experience at Yellowstone even more special.
