Don't miss a thing in Jackson Hole or Grand Teton National Park.
Bigger than New York City (counting all five boroughs, of course) and Washington D.C. combined, Grand Teton National Park could take a lifetime to explore. But what do you do when your time frame is limited? What's not to miss? Where's the best hike? How should you go about finding buffalo? Is there a difference between a buffalo and a bison? Which campground is best for you?
And what about the towns around the park?
Although its population is only about 9,000 people, Jackson is surprisingly amenity rich. Where's the best dessert in town? The best place to treat yourself? How much is a round of golf at Dick Cheney's golf club? Where should you stay?
Even if you're just driving through, use this app to see what's hiding in the park's lodgepole and aspen forests, high alpine tundras, and granite crags ... and why the breakfast at Jenny Lake Lodge is worth a detour off the main highway. Or to learn about Jackson's history. (Did you know Jackson was the country's first town to have an all-female government?)
Award-winning travel writer Dina Mishev has lived in Jackson for 14 years. She began researching and exploring Grand Teton National Park her second day in the valley. She shares nearly 200 of her favorites in Jackson Hole, including almost 100 activities and places in Grand Teton National Park: easy hikes, historical facts, backcountry campsites, restaurants, cafes, lodges, outfitters, climbs, views, and a bar that serves up a platter of nachos as big as a baby bison. You'll find Dina's recommendations for places to stay and eat in Jackson as well as activities you shouldn't miss.
Use the handy maps to find a collection of activities in one area. See the map distance from your current location to your desired activity. If you're short on time, check out Dina's "Top 10," which might have a few more than 10 entries. Beyond that, you will find recommendations for driving tours, restaurants, camping, kids, fishing and boating, hiking and climbing, wildlife watching, and more. All activities are assigned to a neighborhood (southern park, Jackson, Moran, Teton Village).
If Dina's pithy and insightful description leaves you intrigued, a further website reference is included. If there's a cost (in addition to the park's entrance fee for those activities and experiences inside GTNP) it is noted, as are hours and seasonal closures.
