Good spot for very casual, hearty eats before you embark on an outdoor adventure. House made donuts are awesome, anything with their house made bacon is great; if you like something hearty and robust with a Korean flair, get the rice bowl... Call to check their hours first as they vary.

Old-school drive in theatre screening current movies (usually of a general audience variety) and occasionally throw-back films. They also serve burgers and shakes delivered right to the door of your car. Back your car or truck into your spot, turn on your radio to the right channel and bring blankets and pillows to bundle up from the evening chill. They only operate during the summer months and typically Thursday - Friday (maybe Sunday?) and usually do a double feature for the price of one entry.

An excellent place to start a hike up to Taggert Lake or Brady Lake – especially popular in the winter as it is the spot where the park road closes. From here you can snowshoe or hike (depending on conditions) up to Taggert and Brady Lakes. Incredible views of the Tetons. You can also ski or fat bike along the road through the park which is unplowed.

Spectacular set of falls between here and Yellowstone (makes a nice scenic detour off of highway 20 going or coming from West Yellowstone. Modest state park fee required in summer. You can park right at the falls and there is a ranger station and small interpretive center. Easily accessible for most with boardwalks. In winter you can't drive to the falls but there are a series of snowmobile and xc ski trails that you can access from the parking lot to ski along Warm Creek or ski/snowmobile up the unplowed road to the falls.

Our recommended put-in on the Teton River for a lazy 2-4 hr paddle between South Bates Bridge and Bates Bridge take-out. If you want to keep going, you can continue past Bates Bridge to Rainey (Big Eddy) take-out. Bates to Rainey is probably the most popular stretch, which is why we like South Bates to Bates, which tends to be a little less busy and also a bit shorter in length. This is probably the most likely place you will see a moose. We've done it many times and see at least 1 moose probably 80% of the time. Give them a wide berth if they are in the water.

Great recently-redeveloped mineral hot springs just a little south of Jackson (in the Hoback Junction area). They've developed it really nicely with several different small soaking pools and a kind of natural-feeling vibe. Great for families and individuals alike. I believe you need a reservation (which also helps maintain crowding).

Past Jackson and a few miles drive up Hoback Canyon and then a few miles up the dirt Granite Creek road will terminate at the Granite Hot Springs pool. It's a forest service-run pool. Pretty cheap entry fee. No frills but in a beautiful wooded setting. The road up Granite Creek is not plowed in winter but you can still get there with snowmobiles. I think some outfits run snowmobile and dog sledding tours up that road to the hot springs.

A gorgeous clear lake (connecting Jenny and Leigh Lakes) in Grand Teton National Park right under the Tetons. Perfect for summer swimming, kayaking, and paddle boarding. It is a very popular spot with limited parking so you should plan on arriving first thing in the morning... or in the afternoon once people start vacating. Really fun for families and groups too.

Winter visitors download the Idaho511 app for conditions

If you are traveling during snow or storm weather, the Idaho511 app (and Wyoming511 if you are coming from Jackson) will provide you with info on road conditions and closures in extreme conditions.

Avoid soft shoulders on rural roads in winter

For the rural snow-packed roads, drive like a local – in the center of the road unless passing another car. It will help you avoid the soft shoulders that like to suck cars and trucks into snow banks and ditches. Slow and steady wins the snow driving race.
