Where is Yellowstone National Park?
Admittedly, this is confusing since it sits in three states (Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho) and there are actually still people who believe it’s called “Jellystone.” But America’s best national park is worth all the geographic confusion, even if black bears will chase you down.
What is a boutique hotel?
Let's be honest, “boutique” has become such an overused euphemism for “small” that we’re collectively about a step away from referring to bodegas as “boutique grocery stores.” But yes, it generally refers to a small(ish) -- as in fewer than 150 rooms -- hotel with personalized concierges and amenities. For example, these 50 qualify (and are the best in every state), but it could also be a hotel on the top of a crane in Amsterdam or a sprawling Mexican resort where you take a total stranger you met on the Internet.
What to do in Louisiana?
Guaranteed that 90% of the people querying this JUST got stationed at Fort Polk in Leesville, LA, the least-desirable military town in America. Gotta be, right?

But, to answer the question: here are some cool things you can do there for $10 or less and 11 other hikes you can take around the state.
